Fodor's Expert Review Kaiyo

$$ Cow Hollow Peruvian
San Francisco has a handful of Peruvian restaurants, but this uber-hip Union Street spot is the first “Nikkei” (Japanese-Peruvian) cuisine restaurant for diners to explore. Skip the pedestrian pollo a la brasa (rotisserie chicken) and have fun sampling around the tiraditos (dishes with raw fish) and sushi rolls. Much of the seating is at the bar or on the sidewalk terrace, so be prepared for some high decibels and long waits since reservations aren't accepted.
