>Peruvian tiraditos, cebiches auténticos con "leche de tigre," Limón, San Francisco

Hot hot hot Friday night. It so happens that grocery trekker was looking for a place to eat in San Francisco's Mission District, and Limón seemed to be just about the only place with air conditioning.

"At long last, the original location of Limon returns this evening. It's been a long road back for the Peruvian joint—it's been nearly 15 months since it originally shut down in the wake of a fire. Since then, the disaster insurance has been a disaster and during the interim, owner Martin Castillo even opened up a more casual offshoot a few blocks away in Limon Rotisserie. But tonight, Limon reopens to the public. The interior has gotten a noticeable facelift, and the updated menu will mostly stay the course of its prior incarnation of modern Peruvian cuisine."

What a perfect night to enjoy ceviches and tiraditos at a cool primo seat. The energetic staff seemed excited, and the atmosphere was absolutamente perfecto.

I tried their yuzu infused junmai sake. A tad too sweet, but it worked with their food. Too many goodies to choose from. Pescado, conchas, mixto, camarones, clasico, mosaico, causa, atun al tausi, anticuchos, lomo saltado, ensalada verde al maracuya, pulpo a la parilla. Sushi grade ono, sea urchin, camarones, hiramasa, oyster shooter. Legendary pargo rojo, quinotto de hongos, churrasco, chuleton Don Carlitos.

And of course, tiger's milk, (leche de tigre,)
the juice produced from all that ceviche. Salud!
