Best restaurants in Medford, Oregon?

I'm from Chicago and all ther restaurants I have tried in Medford and Ashland, OR are awful, it's worse that hospital food. Everything is "organic", low sodiun", "no MSG", "no garlic", "no ginger", "no hot pepper", "no trans" and the like.

Best restaurants in Medford, Oregon?

I had the worst Mexican food at Flores Mexican Cuisine restaurant in Medford. The "Arroz con Pollo" I tried was an awful concoction I had never seen or tasted in my life. People with even an elementary knowledge of Mexican food should stay away from it.

Salsa Verde

In Italy Salsa Verde is used on top of many things, including boiled meats like, chicken, pork or beef. Sometimes I substitute Salsa Verde with the Argentinian version called "Chimichurri", which is similar but without the capers and can be found already made at some supermarkets.

Pasta Carbonara with Peas

I have had linguini alla carbonara at "Carbonara Ristorante" in Rome, where it's made with "Guanciale", lots of black peper and no cream. Of course, food can always be modified according to individual taste.

Roasted Delicata Squash Salad

It sounds great, I'll try it some day, could I use shaved parmesan instead of ricotta salata?
