What was wrong with the 夫妻肺片 Ox Tongue & Tripe w. Spicy Pepper Sauce I just ate?

I love authentic Chinese food and I am especially fond of offal and other variety meats.So I was very excited to try a new Chinese restaurant in my town. I ordered 夫妻肺片 Ox Tongue & Tripe w. Spicy Pepper Sauce and it was almost painful to eat. It was not too spicy but it seemed like it had way too much salt in it. It literally hurt the inside of my mouth. Is this how it is supposed to be?

Was this salt I was experiencing or perhaps some other type of preservative? I eat salty foods all the time, but I have literally never had a reaction like this!
