Had dinner at Joes, in Venice last nite, I have to say...whats with all the salt??
Lovely salad with pinneapple tomato/chevre/ and grilled eggplant . The eggplant was salty, the dressing was salty and the whole thing had large gritty flakes of salt crunch. Not to the point of being inedible, just too salty for me, would have been perfect otherwise. We were dining late and they were out of the fish I wanted so I had halibut, which is not the most flavorful fish, but nice. this was good, very sweet and rare, but served with a couscous that was, well, really really salty. It was very interesting, "israeli"? couscous, large pearls, with chanterelles, did not need all the salt!!
For dessert i had the choc/mocha/torte thing, which seemed a little boring, didnt finish it so brought it home. This morning tried the remainder of the torte and it was awesome...I think last nite my taste buds were just burnt out by all that salt.
So, did I complain, no, I did not want my friend to think I was not enjoying the meal, because I was enjoying it, just not as much as other times at Joes.
Next time I will request lite on the salt...Please!
