Lima Limon

94-20 Roosevelt Ave. Flushing, NY 11373 | Elmhurst | 718-651-5002

Location Description:

Punning on the name of Peru's capital, Lima Limon offers a greatest hits of Andean cuisine, plus a few obscure dishes rarely seen in Queens. Among them are ocopa (a dark green sauce flavored with an herb called huacatay that's poured over potatoes and garnished with eggs) and olluquito (a beef stew made with a slippery tuber known as olluco). In Peru, it usually features llama meat. Offal standards such as cau-cau (a tripe stew tasting of turmeric) and anticuchos (charcoal-grilled veal-heart kebabs) are rendered with great delicacy, and the traditional ceviches of corvina, octopus, mussels, and squid are also worth ordering, and likely to meet your freshness requirements -- dressed with the restaurant's namesake limon, of course.
