Delfine Report - 24th and Folsom

China | Nov 22, 2006 12:01 AM

Five of us had a lovely dinner at Dolfin last night in the Mission, I don't see any other posts about it so I thought I'd write a little report. It was around 7:30 when we got there, only a few other patrons on a Monday before thanksgiving. Very pleasant room with a very friendly waitress who brought us a comped plate of cerviche with avocado for the table to share, little bowls to share the cerviche, little bowls to taste the soup a friend had ordered (at her request), an extra salad for a friend who was sharing a dish with another friend, and a friendly professionalism which made us feel attended to while avoiding the awkwardness that can come with a quiet night.

The dishes:
Salsa - average cooked tomato salsa, great house made chips
Cerviche - Very tasty and fresh
Salads - came with all of our dinners, mixed greens with tomatoes and several dressing choices served separately, served before the mains.
Caldo de pollo - incredible! Rich broth chock full of veggies and stewed chicken, served with cilantro and mint, the mint was a particularly nice touch.
Camarones con chile de arbol - Good portion of large prawns partially butterflied and cooked in a great creamy sauce with parsley, garlic, and dried chiles, served with fluffy spanish rice and partially mashed refried beans (much more like the refried beans I ate in Michoacan than what is usually served in the US), good corn tortillas heated over a flame to get those nice charred spots
Camarones con chipotle - didn't get to try it
2 orders of enchiladas con mole - Great mole, very complex! They also have green mole which we didn't try.

All of this plus 6 beers only set us back 75$ after tax and tip. We had such a great time, we'll be back.
