Sneak Review: Essensia Restaurant
The cuisine is tagged as "the pure essence of taste," which is the sort of boastful appraisal better left, I think, to restaurant critics. No denying, however, that the menu is chock full of healthful culinary concoctions. It also serves as a substantial glossary of ingredients used -- names, origins, glycemic index ratings, and so forth. Homemade pastas, for instance, have a low glycemic index, are cholesterol-free, and contain added ingredients that promise to increase your "endyent benefits." Whatever those are.
