The three Limon Rotisserie locations in San Francisco are well-known for their pollo a la brasa, or Peruvian spit-roasted chicken. But an appetizer of lomito saltado under the "Small Hot Plates" section of the menu is worth a trip alone.

Eat This: Salumeria's Fried Chicken Sandwich

Categories: Eat This, Mission

IMG_1301.jpeg

A good fried chicken truly hits the spot, especially when it comes in the form of a sandwich. The one served at Salumeria on 20th St is a must-eat.

Here, chicken breasts are seasoned overnight and fried twice daily: once in the morning, and again around 2 p.m, and kept in a warmer. That the bird isn't served blazing hot out of the fryer is actually a good thing -- letting the chicken rest allows the flavors and juices to settle within itself while maintaining the crispy fried coating. You're not burning your mouth on a grease-bomb.

The Haute Dog at Craftsman & Wolves
Craftsman & Wolves has debuted the latest unlikely mash-up of tasty things: the Haute Dog. It's an all-beef dog baked into a mustard-seed croissant/bun, with whole grain mustard and house-made salt and vinegar beet chips. Pastry chef William Werner baptized his creation with a name that is also a pun, but to his credit, he didn't coin a horrible neologism like "cro-furter" or something.

Frying food in blazing hot oil almost always results in tastiness, and the tacos dorados at La Palma are no exception. Literally translating to "golden tacos," the tacos dorados are reminiscent of those at Jack-In-The-Box (don't judge -- they're deep-fried and delicious). The difference, of course, is that La Palma's tortillas are made in-house with fresh masa, and the tacos can be filled with your choice of real meat.

Like many of the grey-hewn mornings before it, you groggily wake to the gentle patter of the rain against your window. Normally, you grab a thermos of barely-passable coffee and a slice of toast while running out the door to catch the bus ... but not today. Sunday is your day to languidly read the paper over a proper cup of coffee and a truly delicious pastry.

It's Saturday night, and the craving for Mexican food hits you. But this is no Mission burrito type of craving. You want to sit down and languidly enjoy a margarita (or two); you want knowledgeable service and food that won't sit in your stomach like a brick all night ... you want Nopalito.
