I'm new to Spokane and am just starting to sample the local restaurants. One thing I've noticed: food seems to be very heavily salted here.
I've tried Sante for breakfast (twice) and dinner and each time I would have said the food was quite good if it weren't for the excessive salt. (I know cured meat is inherently salty, but it isn't supposed to burn the inside of your mouth.)
Ditto Mizuna and a number of other restaurants-salty.
Is it just me? Or do chefs/cooks here heavily salt their food? Is it a northwest thing, over-salting?
