I found out about Limon on Check Please Bay Area with Leslie Sobracco. Usually these Restaurants are so so. Not the case with Limon. We really enjoyed it!!! We asked the Waiter to choose a variety of dishes and had a marvelous time.

Located in a funky neighborhood in the Mission District, we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent Peruvian dishes including Pollo a la Brasa (as good as it is in Lima). For dessert, the Chocolate Bandito was a sensual experience both in terms of presentation and...More
