Salt & Fat

I finally had the opportunity to go to Sunnyside’s newest restaurant, Salt & Fat, which opened on up the south side of Queens Blvd near 41st street just last month. The “new American” restaurant still doesn’t have its liquor license, and serves only dinner, tapas style.

The small restaurant opened just last month, and is in the same location where a Korean restaurant used to be. Interestingly, they give you a small Korean yogurt at the end of your meal. There is also complimentary fresh popcorn.

Lobster

The tapas are mostly in the $9-$12 range (with a few costing more than that), and are definitely meant for sharing. I noticed that with the seafood items there was less of the main ingredient than with other items. This lobster was very succulent and delicious, but there were only three very small pieces of it.

Amongst the fruit and peppers you can see thin slices of Yellowtail, whose portions were more generous than of the lobster, but it was also very good. I prefer it in sushi form though.

Scallops

The best of the six tapas we had were these scallops. Very well prepared,  and with a delicious sauce on the side. It’s just unfortunate that they only give you three, and there were four of us at the table, so it was a bit hard to share.

Oxtail

I don’t eat mammals so didn’t personally try this oxtail, but those that did eat it said it was very good – on par with the scallops. The portion however was again rather small – but that’s to be expected with tapas, and the price was reasonable.

Pasta with mushrooms

It’s tough to make a pasta exciting, but the chefs at Salt & Fat did an admirable job here, topping off the traditional dish with ample mushrooms, cheese, peas, and even egg whites.

Herb chicken

The herb chicken happily came with four pieces (one was already gone by the time I took this picture!) and was juicy and surprisingly good for such a pedestrian dish. The pickled carrots on the side were an interesting choice.
