you’d be surprised at how many people can dine in a 300 square foot space. i certainly was when i strolled into saltie today. i’d heard it was a great lunch spot so on my first day off before christmas, i decided to check it out.
the seats and benches that lined the perimeter of the very modest ‘dining room,’ were filled with hipsters and foodies alike. i secretly loved the layout because i could check out what they had ordered without appearing too nosy : ) when it was my turn, i had to go for the special; egg/rice bowl with veggies, topped with an earthy mole type sauce and spriggy onions. it only took them a few minutes to whip it up and after that i found myself a cozy stool on the window. rice and veggies seems like a very basic dish but the fresh, bold flavors cooked into it made it absolutely delicious. i will definitely be back to dive into one of the specialty sandwiches soon! that’s the bummer about dining alone, eating one dish isn’t nearly as fun as sharing several!
