smoke.oil.salt - the multi-sensory equivalent of an onomatopoeia - is concepted as an authentic Spanish seafood restaurant and wine bar. Helmed by Perfecto Rocher (Lazy Ox Canteen), the menu features the flavors of Spain at a level that I haven't come across yet in LA.
tiger nuts are tubers, that grow in the ground like potatoes.
So I guess you can think of this as the lightest, broth-like cold 'chowder' with shellfish not usually found in soup.

Very interesting dish, and great for those looking for the unexpected and for excitement in dining out.
