  1. Background
  2. Reviews

I was born and raised in the small fishing town of Chorrillos, which is south of Lima, Peru.The house where I lived was only a few blocks away from the beach and the original fish market of the district. From an early age, my grandma would make sure we'd have fresh seafood on our table. She never taught me to cook but instead taught me to eat well using the best ingredients.

I had never contemplated the idea of becoming a chef when I first moved to San Francisco when I was 18 (truth be told, sometimes I still don't believe the I am). However, by age 21, I was working at Enrico's Sidewalk Cafe in North Beach. At that time, San Francisco was a huge world packed in a tiny city, and I felt I could do anything. I consider myself a lucky person to have worked with so many talented cooks and chefs along the way, at places like Enrico's, Boulevard, Cosmopolitan, and Pomelo. Then, life gave me a chance to reach back into my roots when the owners of Limon Restaurant hired me and eventually allowed me to help design their menu and oversee their kitchen. Together, we gave birth to the concept of Limon Rotisserie and I felt truly blessed for being able to share a bit of Peruvian Cuisine with the city.

I had a lot of fun exploring my native cuisine in the those eight years. But now I've joined the Munchery team and I'm excited to create a new adventure and eager to share what little I've learned with all of you.

Delicious! This is a family favorite. Dressing tastes authentically of anchovies. Lettuce is always good. Might be nice to have better quality Parmesan cheese.

Overwhelming fishy flavor and smell of the Caesar dressing. The cheese wasn't very prominent either. Lettuce was only quality ingredient/aspect...

As a cook, I felt the dressing wasn't as well balanced as it could be - it was very anchovy heavy, but lacked the acid to balance it out. I rarely don't finish a meal, but couldn't eat this.

Really good. Dressing was super thick, I used about 1/3 of it and cut it with some lemon juice.

The lettuce must have been at least 10 days old and was about half the portion usually in the salad. We ordered 4 Caesar salad and couldn't eat them.

This was great, but maybe a tad too much anchovy. But that is just my opinion. I'd get it again.

I ordered 2 Caesar salads and they were very small. I have been ordering this exact salad for 2 years now and it was half the size. Flavor and freshness were there but very disappointed in the size. Two salads did not equal the size of one salad.

We love this salad. But the dressing has become way too thick and hard to use.

Usually great but this one was definitely leftover from at least 1 day before, maybe 2 days

The dressing tasted awfully fishy, not normal with a proper Caesar. The anchovy flavoring wasn't balanced at all and the Parmesan seemed to be uninterested in participating... Won't order again.

Croutons were somehow (even tho they were in separate container) soggy, and there were only three croutons. Very strange.

TONS of lettuce, lots of dressing, not much parmesan, and only 6 croutons. Very yummy! But the portions weren't on point.
