Service – Lolinda had ok service that tailed off as it got busy.
Verdict – Lolinda suprised us with very good food. The prices are reasonable, no wonder the place was so loud and packed. A great place to go with several people, share all the food.

Lolinda Food Picks:
Mojito was well balanced, strong, but full of ice.

Lolinda San Francisco pork belly

Vigorón ($12) pork belly, cabbage, jalapeño, crispy yucca, lime was fatty and rich, a bit salty, but worth ordering. The zesty salad worked well to off-set the fattiness.

Lolinda San Francisco octopus

Pulpo ($11) grilled baby octopus, beans, frisée, salsa verde was recommended by the server and hit the mark. Well cooked octopus and tender beans.

Lolinda San Francisco tongue

Lengua ($16) malbec braise, chayote picadillo, salsa verde did not appear to be tongue, this could’ve been any meat. Slightly sweet coating.

Asado Mixto chorizo, morcilla, flap loin, shortrib, potatoes, shishito peppers ($28) is a great dish to order when you can’t make up your mind. A little bit of everything. Sausage was very good as was most of the other meats. The blood sausage was a bit more solid than other versions, while the shortrib was a tad bit salty. The flap loin was very charred.

Acelga ($6) tuscan kale, crimini, chili flakes possessed a crisp texture and a bit of heat.

Churros – house made fritters, dark chocolate and tres leche dipping sauce were freshly fried and highly recommended.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
