I recently went to PF Changs in Downtown Boston for lunch and found that my lunch order was under-salted. When I asked the waiter for some salt to add to the dish, his response was that the restaurant did not carry any salt, and that I should use the soy sauce instead.
I found this to be incredible. I never heard of a restaurant that did not have any salt available.
I eventually emailed the restaurant to inquiry about this and the following was their response (and I quote), "I would like to apologize for us not delivering simple table salt for your dining pleasure. We do not use salt in any of our recipes, we use soy sauce instead of salt. We do order a small amount of salt, in which we mix with pepper for our calamari dish. When the restaurant mixes the salt and pepper, we typically no longer have any left over salt. I will pass your comment along to our restaurant to use as a training tool so they can order extra salt to have on hand in case someone does request salt in the future. Again, please accept my apologies and we hope you will give us another chance." Now that is pretty amazing how a nation-wide chain of resturants do not use salt in their recipes - WOW. Any comments from chowhound users?
