Limon - review

Just came back from dinner at Limon. Not quite what I was expecting - but a very decent evening was had by all.

I have to give 5 stars though to the jicama salad. Original, tasty, spicy - a definite candidate for a re-creation experiment in my kitchen!. Started with the guacamole - very nice, but not at all spicy - hadn't even shared counter space with a jalapeno or any chile pepper for that matter - but still very tasty. Hubby had calamari with chipotle sauce - said they were delish. For mains I had the braised pork - nothing outstanding there- left me wanting more ooomph- again not much of any kind of spice- and I don't necessarily mean heat, just spice. Hubby had the enchilada with mole - good, very very good.

Dessert sucked big time . I chose my fave, creme brulee - it was a distant cousin at best - dulce de leche like in colour (not taste), not quite sure why - and it and vanilla pods had not been introduced.

The service was fair to midling, the wine list decent, the wine we ordered (a red) too cold to enjoy for at least 1/2 hour- 45 mins.

Overall, good - recommendable, but not stellar.
