“Ceviche Street Restaurant–review   Leave a comment

Ceviche Street Restaurant collage

After a year of being introduced to Peruvian food by trying most of the menu at Cabo Blanco I have now eaten at three other Peruvian restaurants with Ceviche Street being the latest.

The last time I was at this building it was a restaurant specializing in American Southern food. The place has been redone and is very pleasing to the eye as is the way the food is presented. Whereas we were allowed to use our groupons at Cabo Blanco on their lunch menu as soon as I showed the groupon to our server here the lunch menu was swiftly taken away and replaced with their dinner menu. I can understand why but I would still have appreciated seeing what was offered at lunch and the prices.

I had the Lomo Saltado with what was said to be Filet Mignon but I question that as the meat was tough and tasted like a cheaper cut. The presentation was beautiful but for the price it was a small portion and though the tomatoes and onions were crisp I didn’t understand serving both rice and home fries. (I lost the receipt and their web page doesn’t give prices I believe it was $16.95 for the dish.)

Allen had the Pescado Frito ($13.95) also with a pleasing to the eye presentation and his response when I asked how it was said, “Nothing special. It’s fish and okay.”

We both had Chicha Morada ($2.95) to drink because the description interested me: Purple corn juice, cinnamon, lime juice, cloves and a star anise. Glad I had it but once was enough.

Allen had a piece of chocolate cake (don’t remember the price) that obviously wasn’t baked on the premises.

All together with tip, tax and after taking off the $9 savings the check came to $36+ change.

Ceviche Street was okay but I would still pick Cabo Blanco for Peruvian dishes for food just as good with larger portions and less expensive along with the bread and 2 sauces served while waiting for your food.
