Did you go anywhere coming anywhere close to having the aspirations/price of Sant Pau and Esaki?

Seriously dudes, went to Whole Foods the other day to pick up some quantity, not quality - the fish there was not good enough for homeless Japanese people.

No. Don't ever go to Whole Foods for fish. They only sell that "sustainable" garbage.

ROFL, I'm sure you really expected greatness at a St. Louis grocery store.
post #18082 of 25581
Whole Foods has to buy in huge quantities, and there aren't huge quantities of good fish.

ok, let's talk about the fucking palmfuls of salt that Americans love throwing at food without fail. What up wit dat?
post #18084 of 25581
Salt increases the volatility of certain chemical compounds, aka, makes food taste better. Why do you hate good tastin' food, bro?

Food is A LOT saltier in France than in the US, at least comparing good restaurants.

Spain too.

And I didn't really find the food in Tokyo (admittedly a limited sample) that un-salty. Some things were incredibly salty.

I don't even generally disagree with a lot of what your saying, but you should try arguing it with a little more subtlety, instead of playing pretend Mikael Jonsson.

alright, Japanese food gets salty at times depending on what it is, and yeah its salted fish and saltwater seaweed stacked with soy sauce with salt, dipped in salt or something, whateva - but I'm just saying i get to LAX and feel like I should eat a light meal at Bouchon because it's there and the food is made consistently.... salty. They salt everything about 50% more than they need to,your god TK doesn't know seasoning, maybe interior decoration. I have a bistro down the block from my house in Tokyo that makes a reasonable facsimile of Bouchon's menu but serves properly salted food.

FWIW all of those Gagnaire and Robuchon chain restaurants I've eaten at recently - seasoning was perfect for every dish.

Funny, b/c Matt's big complaint about Keller is unseasoned foie gras.
