Chef Tim Archuleta reviews Mollejas at Lolinda
$$$ | Spanish/Portuguese | Steakhouse | Wine Bar
Mission
"Chef Alex's sweetbreads are always cooked perfectly. They make me almost forget I can't have foie in California anymore. The texture and garnishes are right on; they're that good."
Chef Roman Petry reviews Ceviche de pescado at Lolinda
$$$ | Spanish/Portuguese | Steakhouse | Wine Bar
Mission
"The thinly sliced Ono with lime and ají amarillo is so beautifully balanced—spicy but not too much, and the lime makes it so fresh. The best part about this dish is the mix of the corn fritters with the ceviche. It’s the perfect start before getting one of Alex Morgan's steaks with chimichurri. Depending on the season, the fish sometimes changes to local halibut from Half Moon Bay—which makes it even better!"
Chef Melissa King reviews Alfajores at Lolinda
$$$ | Spanish/Portuguese | Steakhouse | Wine Bar
Mission
"I can’t stress enough how much I love these fluffy, gooey, powdery cookies! Another favorite here: vanilla milkshakes. They offer their vanilla milkshake with booze too, but I'm a purest and savor all of its vanilla goodness. For something savory, order their pork chop. It's brined perfectly and cooked over a wood-fire grill."
Chef Adam Timney reviews Braised tongue at Lolinda
$$$ | Spanish/Portuguese | Steakhouse | Wine Bar
Mission
"I love tongue, especially when it gets slow cooked in Malbec and takes on a silky, unctuous texture."
Chef Freedom Rains reviews Tartare de carne at Lolinda
$$$ | Spanish/Portuguese | Steakhouse | Wine Bar
Mission
"It's everything you want in a tartare. The horseradish aioli is refreshing and adds a nice zip, and the bread is special in its own right—charred perfectly, which gives it a nice texture and a hint of smoky flavor."
