A Pinch Of Chicha At Ceviche

22 May 2012

'Babe don't eat that yet I haven't photographed it!' - The responding look!

Set in the trendy streets of Soho, and all under one roof you can delve deep into the relaxed and playful spirit of the Peruvian people. Ceviche opened not so long ago and buzzes with personality and atmosphere. A beautiful glass skylight brings natural light to the restaurant with its dark wooden flooring and colourful posters that hang amongst old photographs steeped with family history perhaps, who knows!

The food at Ceviche is an art, which their talented chefs take great pride in perfecting; as they casually say: ‘You need the freshest raw fish, just enough Peruvian lime, a chilli kick and a pinch of ground sea salt. That’s just what’s in it. How you make it, the methods and timings, are ingredients in their own right.’
From the raw fish which is just to die for and in my opinion the ‘new sushimi’.. to the sizzling barbecued anticuchos, super salads and juicy saltados, the people at Ceviche care about every single ingredient! Martin Morales the main man behind the restaurant explains to me after our delicious supps.. ‘Ceviche is serious about our food but with a lot of chicha (that’s Peruvian for fun and playful). Non-exclusive, here we cook with love.’

What he says was all too obviously in the food, thinly sliced seabass in aji amarillo chilli tiger milk with cancha corn literally melted in our mouths and the ‘Tequenos’ which are Wanton fritters filled with aji de gallina chicken and aji amarillo chilli, were literally to die for! All washed down with one of their famous Pisco Sour’s (or three!)

This place is a well worth a visit and I think you will agree you soon will become rather hooked on Ceviche’s Chicha!!
