17 Frith St Soho London W1D 4RG
Ceviche in Soho is a small, cosy, convivial restaurant of the highest order, and not only one of the few places in London you can try the fresh and bright flavors of ceviche, but also one of very few places you can eat perhaps South America's what is perhaps most unknown and underrated cuisine. It's not a conventional menu, and is set up for sharing (3 dishes per person is easily enough), whether it's from the list of 'classic favourites' – fabulous lomo saltado (flame-grilled beef with potatoes), arroz con pato (confit duck with rice), quinoa or palm heart salads – great meat or fish skewers (try the octopus and chorizo), and of course ceviche, served both traditional-style and with wasabi and other Japanesey touches. Dont miss the wonderful lucuma cheesecake for dessert. The drinks menu too is worth the visit, not just for the wonderfully more-ish pisco sours but also for a choice of cocktails that expertly fuses traditional South America flavours with traditional English ingredients, such as their Black Butterfly cocktail – a complex and sweet mix that uses lavender infused pisco with English blackberries and wild nettle cordial. One of Soho's best current places to eat – and they also run regular ceviche masterclasses for those inspired enough to find out more.
