Great new Peruvian/Cuban Restaurant in Ritchie Plaza at 765 Rockville Pike. Makes this strip mall a Chowhound's oasis with India Grill, El Mariachi, a Pho place, and Sam's Kebab Restaurant (not to mention the IHOP anchor tenant).
La Limena is sit-down and a carry-out. Apps/starters include great ceviches (try Choros a la Chalaca - mussels heaped with red onions, garlic, lime juice, sea salt and cilantro), tamales, tostones and empanadas. Sandwiches include "Monster" concoctions of roast pork, or roast chicken or a Cubano, and still more varieties offered Sunday only. Mains include rotisserie chicken, 6 beefsteak preparations, shrimp, trout, heart and grilled tripe (excellent, served with a spicy, garlicky mayonaise). Nothing more than $10. Sides include potatoes (lots), rice, beans, yuca, plantains, corn on the cob. Peruvian desserts and beverages round out the offerings, no beer though. Service is unceasingly polite and efficient.
