"leche de tigre" sampler

One of a handful of local eateries specializing in Peruvian food, this chic, packed, low-lit hotspot serves a culture-bending menu of traditional dishes creatively infused with influences ranging from China and Japan to Spain and Africa. Dishes such as Crispy Ceviche (petrale sole and yucca with a shot of leche de tigre) and lomo saltado (beef stir-fried with french fries, tomatoes and onions) are popular, but it's the rotisserie chicken that's made Limón a household name—marinated and slowly roasted over an open flame to a garlicky, lemony goodness.

Really great food... outrageously high noise levels are the main problem....
