La Mar Cebicheria

7 Mar

I love ceviche (or as it’s called here, cebiche), but it’s a pain to make and not as easily accessible in restaurants in the states. Peru is famous for its ceviche, so I was very excited to try a local version.

There are other La Mar locations throughout South, Central, and North America.

This cebicheria was on the fancier end. We didn’t want to risk getting sick, so it was worth it to pay a bit more.

Complimentary sweet potato and plantain chips with various dipping sauces. Super tasty!

Complimentary corn nuts. Peruvian corn nuts > American corn nuts.

Chicha morada, a local drink made with purple corn, cinnamon, sugar, etc. I’ve had this in the states and loved it! If you haven’t had it, think of a spicier version of jamaica.

We got the sampler, ceviche 5 different ways. Forgot what they were, but each delicious in its own way.

We also got a full order of a different type of ceviche. Yes that is uni, so fresh and creamy!

Complimentary dulce de leche (milk caramel) helado (a cross between ice cream and gelato).

All in all, a very fresh and delicious lunch. Can’t wait for the next time I get to eat ceviche!

    I love ceviche too. We make it at home, but not as fancy. Send recipes.
