Description

SF Weekly's Description

The big draw at this Mission District restaurant painted in bright citrus hues is the pollo a la brasa, Peruvian spit-roasted chicken. Whatever chef Martin Castillo's cooks do to the birds -- it's a secret -- they come off the spit with crackly, ruddy skins marked with waves of flame-blackened spice. Whether you order a quarter, half, or whole, the meat comes with a couple of sauces and two sides. Equally good at Limon Rotisserie is the anticuchos, or grilled beef hearts with chimichurri sauce, and the rustic ceviche mixto served with corn and sweet potatoes. It's the rare San Francisco restaurant where you can take a date, have a good meal and a glass of sangria, and only spend $20 a person.
