The day started off nicely with a trip to the farmer's market at the Ferry Building. I was on a mission to visit Miette and become (once more) entranced by her charming allure. And boy oh boy was I! So many people out and about on foot, it really made me miss my college days in the bay. We were lucky enough to chug down some fresh-sqeezed blood orange, grapefruit and orange juice that was so delicious, it nearly made me fall over with joy. So, without further ado, here's a documentary of how our day transpired. Toodles!
Dinner at Limon in the Mission District. By far one of the best Peruvian restaurants I've ever feasted in. Their service was nothing less than impeccable. They seated us at the lower bar area (w/o reservations..thank goodness we came early) and the 'cebiche mixto con leche de tigre' was on point! Freshly prepared with snapper, calamari and shrimp drizzled with a tang of citrus and fresh kernels of hominy, all I could wonder was how it could possibly get any better. But oh yes..it did! I practically devoured the cebiche nikei that consisted of the most tender and freshest cut of perfectly sliced ahi tuna one could ever wish for---definitely my favorite.
But the most memorable part of the evening was when the head Chef Alex served up complimentary cebiche shooters to our party b/c apparently, my sister's pork chop was taking a bit longer to cook. And honestly, we were too busy enjoying our appetizers to even realize the wait. God, if it's anything that will bring my happy butt back into a restaurant, it is hands down: the service! Thank you Limon for making We Day a 'frickin great day!
