In a deceptively small space located in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco is a Peruvian Tapas restaurant called Limon Rotisserie. We made reservations ahead of time on OpenTable, so I was surprised to see every table full when we walked in. Little did we know that there was a downstairs dining area outfitted with it’s own bar. The place is dimly lit and almost has a club-like/bar ambiance. Limon is not a child friendly place, but seeing how we were on vacation, there wasn’t much we could do.
Since Alyssa was starting to teeth, she was being extremely fussy. I’m sure the group of business people next to us was quite annoyed, but I realize now that I’m a parent, I don’t care. If she was throwing a tantrum, it would be a different story, but she couldn’t help it. It was the first time I ever had to take her out of the restaurant because of her crying. I think I went outside about 4 times. Luckily the rain stopped and it was nice and cool outside.
Limon Rotisserie – San Francisco
The menu. I had a Limon Punch. Fruity…no discernible taste of alcohol, but has a nice kick.
Whole Rotisserie Chicken. Wow! My mouth salivates just looking at this picture and thinking about it. The skin is slightly crispy with a nice dose of salt and the meat is so juicy. Even the white meat is juicy. Rotisserie chicken perfected.
Yuca Fries. Crispy exterior, creamy interior. Perfect, just perfect.
Aji De Gallina. I’ve never had this dish before. It was a little salty for my taste, but I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be that way. The quail egg is a nice touch though.
Truffle Mac and Cheese. Seriously, there is a fine line between too watery and too gooey. Nice to actually have truffle pieces in the mix and not just oil. Pretty close to perfect.
Carne Empanadas. The steak was a little dry, but the pastry shell was really good.
The next time I’m back in San Francisco, Limon will be on my list of places to eat at. It’s a little on the expensive side for chicken, but most of the Bay area is expensive.
