we were grateful to have found El Fogon early on during our stay in San Pedro so that we were able to visit again for lunch, another dinner and 2 desserts. my partner and i showed up just after they closed and the owner Olive kindly let us come in and have the key lime pie we had heard about. this began a deep affection for Olive, her staff, the menu and the history of her family's ownership of the restaurant. the meat dishes are cooked over a traditional wood hearth. the aroma of the stewed chicken drifts lovingly and enticingly for over a block. the fresh fruit smoothies (our fave....pineapple!) was sooo refreshing. we love the chicken to a fault as well as the frozen key lime pie Olive makes herself. beyond the fresh amazing food, they all just plain and simply made us feel like we were friends welcome in their home. we miss each dish we tried and are making our best efforts to recreate them here at home.
