SquareMeal Review of
Señor Ceviche Soho
One of London’s more accessible Peruvian restaurants, this cramped Kingly Court resident is a miniature maelstrom of colour, flavour and sound. Trendy-looking staff set the tone and the vibe is fast-paced but “really friendly”, amid colourful graffiti and black-and-white snaps of Peruvian life. The main event is, of course, the ceviche list, which runs from sea bass via octopus and sweet potato purée to a veggie variant involving barbecued artichoke. There’s also much more to enjoy, including gloriously sticky piles of aubergine and sweet potato doughnuts (picarones), and a full BBQ contingent: the baby back ribs in a sticky soy, ginger and sesame sauce come highly recommended. Much of the menu is gluten-free, and there’s also a good-value lunch deal from Monday to Thursday. The cocktail list is ruled by Pisco (we recommend sticking to the traditional sours), while a short wine list makes room for Chile and Argentina.
