Me Colombian with a Mexican husband, we move to HK from NY I have working in lifestyle brand consultant for more than 20 years but I just love food and cook and really enjoy when people enjoy my food too.
We love design and I cannot stop doing DIY projects some you will see when you visit our home
Even thought I am not Mexican my Mexican friends want me to teach how to cook to their Mexican wife’s :)
I have live in Peru for long periods in my live and travel a lot for business and there in nothing like eat a ceviche in Lima!!!! Lima is in my heart forever!!!!
It's clear from the moment they opened the door that Lina and her husband are naturals at hosting and we were immediately at ease in their home, whose colourful Latin American decor and funky ethnic artefacts perfectly complement the origins of the dishes.
Dining here offers an interesting opportunity to compare the contrasting Peruvian and Mexican approaches to executing one of the continent's most well-known dishes: ceviche. There's so much more going on than simply raw fish cooked in lemon juice, and - after we're asked about the level of spiciness we prefer - it's a delight to explore the distinctive textures and flavourings each offers. These are substantial and refreshing salads.
While the menu describes the elements of the dishes without fanfare, there is of course much more to know and Lina sets the scene before each arrives with some colour on the native cuisine and the the way the ingredients are used. As we move on to the imaginative presentation of mashed tuna, avocado and onion potato, it's really striking how well the various textures and spicing notes are picked out as you work through the layers. The sole hot dish, shredded chicken and avocado on a tostada, brings into play a fleeting note of sweetness that works well with the citrus and chilli spicing. The Pannacotta dessert is refreshingly fruity and light.
This was our first Plate Culture experience, and it has exceeded our expectations.
The dining experience at Limon Chile was really enjoyable. The kitchen was very conveniently located, home decor was unique and food was full of flavours and refreshing. They have two friendly dogs who are really welcoming. Perfect for a hot summers day, highly recommended!
We absolutely loved the dinner with Lina and Hector! The place was very cool, esthetic and harmonious. It pprobably is the best South American food we found in HK. Lina and Hector know and will tell you so much about the smallest details and differences about the recipes. Seviches were different (Peru and Mexico) and really very distinctive. Delicious both!
And so was the rest of the menu, the highest quality and presentation.
It's very discrete and we were given a lot of privacy to have a nice Friday catch up between us. But then the hosts were very friendly to join us for a drink when dinner was over. They are really fun company. We can't recommend enough this dinner experience! Thank you Lina and Hector (and your sweet dogs)! We will be back.
My lovely girlfriend arranged an incredible party for birthday where Limon Chile chefs delighted me and me and my friends with yummy mexican dinner.
Lina and Hector also adapted the recipes to my food allergies without alternating the original taste of the dishes!
Warmly recommended! You will absolute love their food!
