here, I just say "bez sal" and they pretty much decrease the salt content though they always have a puzzled look when I ask.........it means "without salt"....

yeah, that's the worst thing about my dh and I eating out-----we've gotten so used to a low salt diet that when we eat out it can sometimes be a challenge but we've found many restaurants who will accomodate us and we always tip well when they do

What a list! I've never eaten any of the items on the list. That's because I don't really care for many of them or we either don't have most of the restaurants in our area or we don't care for the restaurant. The foods would definitely be a challenge for Buck and me because we use very little salt. Never have been big on salt. The examples look like, "have a little food with your salt."

"demi-glace" was never meant to "blanket" anything!

that's a very scary list.

me neither. I've never eaten in any of those restaurants, either, except maybe once or twice in a Dennys on the road.
