Salt (the seasoning, not the movie)

27 Aug

I went to get salt the other day. How many different kinds of salt can there be at a supermarket? More than you can shake a salt shaker at, all labeled confusingly in a muddle of bahasa, Chinese, and Malinglish. So I got what seemed to be the closest thing to the sea salt I get in the US: rock salt, with no anti-caking agents or other additives.

Turns out it’s that pink Himalayan rock salt they sell at gourmet markets in teeny bottles for $20. This bag was 4 RM (ringgit), or $1.20. The imported UK-brand salt, on the other hand, was at least twice that.

Location, location, location.
