Squaremeal Review of Ceviche ?

The launch of a sibling in Shoreditch hasn't affected this original Peruvian party-starter, which continues to garner stonking reviews. It's a "noisy little place" and tables are jam-packed together, but nothing dampens the mood in the buzzy dining room, where bright white walls, blue-washed woods, vibrant artwork and an upbeat Latino soundtrack create a sunny feel-good vibe. The steel-topped bar doles out famously tangy plates of citrus-marinated seafood including the Don Ceviche (firm sea bass chunks glistening in a pool of amarillo chilli-infused lime juice) – although the "diverse" menu also extends to smoky grilled meats and traditional recipes such as pachamanca chicken with Andean huacatay (black mint) sauce and sweet potato or choclo corn and feta cakes with avocado. Bills can mount up quickly, but with "great service" and Pisco Sours "as good as Peru", we're with readers who say "keep it up, Ceviche".

    Half a Slice of Toast :: Half a Slice of Toast | Ceviche

    Peruvian food is one of my favourite cuisines. One place I go to get my peruvian fix is Ceviche on Firth Street. The first time I went was for dinner with with my cousin and it didn’t disappoint. My favourite was, of course, the ceviche which was not only fresh and full of flavour but beautiful by design. We had the scallop ceviche which came marinaded in pisco, lime, chilli and coriander and the sea bass ceviche garnished with sweet potato and red onion. Another winner was the octopus and chriozo skewers which were grilled to perfection. I’d quite happily spend the entire evening here eating ceviche and drinking...

    a little lusciousness: BULL IN A CHINA SHOP, SHOREDITCH :: a little lusciousness: CEVICHE, SOHO

    There's nothing like doing a pop up restaurant for 18 people to make me want a luxury holiday. If I could, I'd jet out of the UK to tropical climes the minute I've finished the clearing up but sadly it doesn't happen like that! However, when I get the chance to get out of the house the next day and visit a new and exciting restaurant, serving lots of fresh fish, then that's got to be the next best thing. So after last weekend's pop up that's exactly what I did. Our friend Matt Burgess, who was head chef at Ealing Park Tavern has been snapped up by Ceviche in Soho where he's now running the kitchen. I know wherever...

    Memoirs Of A Metro Girl :: Ceviche review: Raw fish and a bit of spice washed down with a Pisco Sour | Memoirs Of A Metro Girl

    The Mexican food revolution in London took years, but fortunately it’s also brought an appetite for other Latin American cuisines and opened up Londoners’ culinary options even further. Step forward Ceviche, a Peruvian kitchen and Pisco bar in the heart of Soho. The restaurant opened in Spring 2012 on the site of Cafe Emm – a restaurant I loved, but fortunately Ceviche is a good successor. It’s been nearly 10 years since I visited Peru and I remember eating very well there and was particularly fond of the choclo (corn) based dishes and Pisco Sours, so was eager to rediscover the cuisine...

    inher30s :: Ceviche, Soho | inher30s

    Ceviche is a South American favourite, raw fish ‘cooked’ by being marinated in a combination of citrus juices and you can either add a bit of spice to it or change the flavour up with some onions, cilantro etc. It has overtures of the freshness of Japanese cuisine and it’s just not what I expect from South American cuisine – what comes to mind is Corn, Grilled meats and the like...

    The Swindian :: Ceviche- hit and miss in Soho- The Swindian

    My first experience with Peruvian food was a few years ago at Lima, where I left slightly dissatisfied. Ever since then, I have warmed to the cuisine, though I still remain doubtful about which bits I actually enjoy!
    To try and understand this further, I did some research at Señor Ceviche, Lima Floral, and now Ceviche. I’ll focus on the last one in this post, mainly because I didn’t take photos or notes of the other two…
    It was a beautiful day and earlier that morning, I had taken the boat down the river for the first time (using my Oyster!), and so I was certainly in the mood for some great food.
