12 Hour slow cooked heritage pork, jalapeño creamed spinach, curried
chickpea salad, lemonadeThe pork was tasty enough, but completely plain and like any other
carnitas or confit I've ever had. I have been to the mountain top
and looked down upon mere mortal pigs... All other pork has been
ruined for me by Roli Roti! A blessing and a curse.
The creamed spinach was luscious, with a nice subtle heat. At first I found it to be a bit undersalted, at least in relation to the rest of the plate, but eventually a mere squeeze of lime balanced it out perfectly.
The chickpea and barley salad, which came recommended by my server (who curiously kept calling me "ma'am"... I didn't think I came off as so old..?), was quite delicious--- even in spite of the chickpeas being noticably undercooked.
So, not perfect, but still quite tasty and generously portioned: I left quite full (even overly so) and with a small box of leftovers. The damage? $18 bucks with tip, not bad, but I think maybe next time I'll just stick with the side dishes.
