A: The house dressing at Joli Kobe has ingredients that you can't quite place - but that you always want to taste one more time to see if you can. What is that . . . garlic? Soy sauce? Carrot? If "ginger" weren't in the name, you might be guessing about the key ingredient for quite a while.
"It has a strong suggestion of ginger, but it's not overpowering, " explained Bill Lally, Joli Kobe's director of food and beverage.
