Dinner at Fresca, San Francisco, CA

We went to Fresca for our friend, J.'s, birthday. Fresca is a mid-range Peruvian place with a few outposts around the city. Honestly, the food was a bit of a disappointment.

Bread Sticks (gratuit)
Rather bland, but warm, and that means a lot.

Coconut Shrimp $12
These sounded better than they were. They were too sweet and too breaded.

Assortment of 6 Ceviches $26
This was by far the highlight of the meal. The ceviches were very different from each other and all were delicious. The one made with squid ink was particularly tasty. Pictures above and below.

Lamb Chops with Prawns and Tabouli $28
The chops were pretty good, but the shrimp were overcooked. This dish was fine, but not special.

Steak with Potatoes $30
The pomegranate added a nice touch, but I don't think we finished this dish between the 5 of us, so that's saying something.

These were so bad we sent them back, and they were removed from the bill. They were old and small.
Paella $28
This was really terrible paella. It was flavorless until we added hot sauce, at which point the spice was all we could taste. And the mussels were sub-par.

Halibut with Risotto Cake $23
The fish was very overcooked, but the risotto cake drenched in sauce was pretty tasty.
