Inkas [San Francisco] - La Lengua Chronicles Part 16

Date dined: 7/17/12

Had a quick dinner here and found it pretty good. Bread was served with a spicy, garlicky dip which I liked a lot. Maybe my favorite part of the meal. Pollo a las brasas was good, but i thought the chicken could have been a bit more tender. Half-chicken was a big portion, served with slightly greasy fries.

We also had arroz con mariscos, which I thought was only okay, as it was lacking in flavor. It contained shrimp, mussels, and calamari, none of which were overcooked, so that was a plus. On a neighboring table I saw the chaufa de mariscos, which is fried rice (as opposed to 'Peruvian paella") and this looked better.

My dining companion had a Cuzqueña she pointed out, the beer was a nice match for the food.

This past weekend (so, two weeks later), I ate at Limon Rotisserie for the first time (not part of La Lengua). I think I prefer the Limon experience over Inkas, and the prices aren't that different. I thought the chicken at Limon was a bit more flavorful (maybe also just saltier?) and I liked that they offer sweet potato fries (Inkas does not list this as an option on the menu)
