Anyway, my primary reason for being in Fresno was for work, so on my first day off, I treated myself to a partial "Spa" day and a Peruvian Lunch at Limon.
The wine list was decent, I settled for the Malbac, for a very new looking place in a very big strip mall. FYI - If you've never gone to Fresno, there are strip malls everywhere, with every store (except Nordstrom) and every fast food chain you can imagine.
I started with the Limon Ceviche. Very tart, which I like, big chunks of halibut, squid, and shrimp...YUM. This is served with a roasted sweet potato AND, this is when it goes south, toasted corn. There was also hominy, which was a nice accompaniment. OK, the toasted corn was so hard, not your ordinary CornNut, and bitter, I hate to admit it, but I had to spit it out.
After taking a large gulp of my wine and then practically a whole glass of water, I was able to wsh away the bad taste and enjoy the ceviche, sans the corn.
Hoping for Limon to redeem themselves, I took my waiter's advise and ordered the house specialty, a Peruvian favorite, the Saltado de Pollo, chicken breast sauteed with onions, tomatoes and fries, served with rice. What I got was not what I expected. I don't know why, but I didn't "REALLY" think the fries would be sauteed together with the chicken. I thought to myself, I should have gone to Panda Express in the mall. I could have saved myself $50.00 + tip.
