Limon Restaurant in the Mission Report

The Culinary Edge | May 28, 200403:30 AM

Went to dinner tonight with a group of 6 to Limon on 17th street off of Mission.

The place was packed and unbearably hot inside. Noise levels were definitely not bring your inlaws friendly.

That being said, we had one of the best meals of the year. The ceviche Limon was a combination of halibut, octopus, and shrimp served with slivered red onions, a thick creamy slice of sweet potato, posole, and crispy corn. This execution on a traditional dish was unexpected, but it all worked well.

Stand out entrees were the Pork chop - a perfectly browned 12oz chop lightly pink and juicy inside, served with a wonderful finely shredded cabbage braise, cubed crisp potatoes and sauteed mushrooms. The lamb dish, with lentils was also superb.

The food at Limon was excellent, and extremely reasonable price wise - similar to Luna park, but much better quality.

I could usually care less about noise in a restaurant, but it was on the verge of unbearable, and the 90 degree dining room needs to be fixed. With these couple of changes, Limon has the chance of being one of SF's truly great neighborhood spots.
