Once upon a time in Angel

Donna, do you think you can get the salt stain out of this?
Elaine Benes (Seinfeld episode “The Secretary”)

A place I wanted to visit was John Salt. Probably I waited too long, as Ben Spalding left over the burger incident and then Neil Rankin moved to open Smokehouse, now they are betting into a neighbourhood bar concept. The place was almost empty, weekday a bit later than lunch time and just a couple tables. This hit me as all the reviews I recalled talked about how hard was to find a table there. Now empty rustic bar stools, same for the wood tables, and loud alternative music.

The place
Not impressed at all with the food to be honest, got a kale Caesar salad, just ok, the smoked chicken was hard and cold. Then salt and pepper squid that was nice, good battered and the siracha mayo was spot on, all worked really nice. Finally, some chips with cheese, kimchi, and pulled pork, a bit tough the fries, the pulled pork was nice, the kimchi I hardly notice it. 

Kale Caesar
Sadly, food was not outstanding, I can’t recommend it, only if you are around really hungry and I would say only maybe.
