[oomph] eats. grilled romaine.

as someone who loves and consumes a lot of salads, i know how i like them...cold and crisp. but i changed my mind after trying the signature salad (grilled romaine) at a fairly new restaurant, grylt. while the overall restaurant experience was just ok and the food a bit salty, i did like the idea of grilled romaine. romaine lettuce is hearty enough to withstand heat, and done right, it's still crispy and even sweet. you can find a bunch of recipes on the internet, each with its own twist,
but here's the basics:

romaine hearts, halved lengthwise
olive oil
coarse salt and pepper
shredded parmesan cheese

brush hearts with olive oil, salt and pepper,
grill until slightly charred, top with cheese and serve.

signature salad + steak add-on from grylt restaurant.
beef barley soup & acai bowl.
