Here's more info from reviews from SF Chronicle, NYT, KQED, and Yelp:
"Well executed! Delectable roast chicken and Peruvian specialties like ensalada rusa (a traditional Peruvian root vegetable) and chicha morada, a non-alcoholic beverage made from purple corn that tastes like sweet berry juice. Expect a packed house on weekends.
Limon Rotisserie 5800 Third St at Carroll San Francisco, CA 94124 www.limonrotisserie.com
Radio Africa & Kitchen
"Most venerable! North African cuisine with a California focus on fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. Items on the menu include crimini mushroom crostini with sugar peas and mint, as well as barramundi with mustard greens and saffron.
Radio Africa & Kitchen 4800 3rd St at Oakdale San Francisco, CA 94124 www.radioafricakitchen.com
Old Skool Café
"5-star reviews…but the GREAT food and atmosphere will bring us back! Red Snapper Ceviche and Shrimp and Grits were delicious… the Gumbo …. the "Grexican" Burger sliders were (all) fantastic. Rebecca and Marcel entertained us with beautiful and upbeat singing and piano playing, so we wanted to stay all night.
Old Skool 1429 Mendell St at Oakdale Ave San Francisco, CA 94124 www.oldskoolcafe.org
"Great service, solid food, excellent value. Our group shared a bunch of small plates and a few entrees, cocktails, dessert. We left stuffed and happy. Beef empanadas and chorizo sliders were standouts.
