Señor Ceviche: Señor’s casa is your casa!

IMG_2115Indulging in my new obsession for Peruvian cuisine, I had to check out Señor Ceviche, the new Peruvian Casa in Kingly Court, Soho. The colourful restaurant is full of food, fun & cocktails, and is modelled on the colonial & bohemian district of Barranco, Lima, bringing a little slice of downtown Lima over to Soho.

Inspired by travels around Peru and working in Lima’s top ceviche restaurant, the menu showcases exciting & diverse flavours, and cooking techniques. The menu features everything from street nibbles, to fresh ceviches, fiery barbecued meats & healthy superfood salads, and is the perfect balance of both naughty and healthy eating!

During my visit, I sampled:

Starter Plates:

  • Yucas (£4) – Cassava croquettes with aji panca sour cream
  • Jalea Mixto with Jalapeño Tigers Milk (£6.50) – Tempura baby squid, prawns & market fish, served with jalapeño tigers milk

Main Plates:

  • Limeno Classico Ceviche (£7.50) – Sea bream ceviche with aji limo tigers milk, sweet potato, red onion & coriander
  • Señor Ceviche (£8) – Sea bream ceviche with aji amarillo tigers milk, avocado & tempura baby squid
  • The Spaniard Ceviche (£9) – Sea bream & king prawn ceviche with tomato tigers milk & crispy chorizo
  • Flat Iron Anticucho (£8) – Beef skewers with aji rocotto anticucho sauce & aji limo chimichurri
  • Super Chicken (£8.50) – Marinated & chargrilled chicken served with aji rocotto mayonnaise
  • Cusco Quinoa (£6.50) – Roasted vegetables, edamame beans, giant choclo corn & crumbly queso

Desserts:

  • Passion Fruit Posset (£5)
  • Chocolate Brownie and Coconut Ice-cream (£5.50)

I was so impressed with the intensity of flavours and the variety of the food. I really adored the ceviches, which all feature tigers milk (leche de tigre), the marinading emulsion of lime, chilli and salt, which is the star ingredient in Peruvian ceviche. The ceviches are so healthy and are great to mix and match. The beef skewers were tender & juicy, and the Super Chicken was truly amazing – the chicken was cooked perfectly and matched wonderfully with the spicy mayonnaise.

IMG_1955The desserts were also really enjoyable, not too rich and very moreish. The Passion Fruit Posset was thick & creamy, and made with a generous amount of passion fruit – I could have easily ordered another portion. The chocolate brownie was faultless and exactly as it should be – warm, chewy on edges, and moist & gooey in the centre!

The bar is worth a special mention, thanks to its tasty cocktail menu, featuring plenty of Peru’s national drink, Pisco. I drank several cocktails including the Barranco Babe (1615 Pisco, passion fruit purée, lime juice, vanilla syrup, egg white, basil leaves & burnt angostura), the Titicaca Fizz (7 Hills gin, lemon juice, grapefruit bitters, sugar syrup, egg whites, Ting) and the Amazonian Elixir (apple juice, elderflower cordial, lime juice, gomme syrup, basil leaves & soda water). The Barranco Babe was really smooth and fruity – a winning combination! The Titicaca Fizz was sharper but equally nice, and the non-alcoholic Amazonian Elixir was really refreshing.

While Señor Ceviche takes its food, drinks and service seriously, the rest of what they do it laid back and loco! From the stripped back design and Peruvian street art, to the cool, friendly staff and Latin beats, Señor Ceviche is all about having a good time – Lima style! The restaurant is ideal for all occasions, from after-work cocktails & tapas, lunch with friends, dinner dates or a full on fiesta banquet! As for me, I’m already booking my next visit – hasta pronto!
