Buena Park: Aji Limon Peruvian food

I was driving through Buena Park and stumbled on Aji Limon.  Located near Lincoln and Knott, in the corner of the Big 5 parking lot is this simple restaurant.  The menu had your typical Peruvian items, and they even notated what is Chinese inspired and what is Japanese inspired, as both ethnic groups influenced their food.

Karen and I didn’t want to take home left overs, and well, Peruvian food is known for large portions (and carbs).  We decided to split the special Chaufa (fried rice) which had beef, pork, chicken and shrimp.  The server brought out bread and the famous green sauce.  Unlike many places that I’ve been to, no complimentary bowl of soup.  Oh well.

Even though we split it, we still had about a serving size left over.  Very decent portion and it was pretty tasty, not to mention cheap eats when splitting a plate.  Dinner for 2 with 2 soda came to just over $20.  I’d go back to try their noodles.
