Have you been down to Kingly Court lately? It's like a little treasure trove of wonderful places to eat: Pizza Pilgrims, Stax Diner, Wright Brothers and Dirty Bones all hold fort on this little courtyard found at the back of Carnaby Street & that's exactly where I was headed for my second Zomato meet-up #Zomeeto
All of the dishes at Senor Ceviche are freshly prepared and served sharing style - my favourite way to eat. And being the hospitable bunch that they are, they presented us with nearly the WHOLE menu to try.
First up was Picarone Aubergines (£5) - little sweet potato and aubergine doughnuts fried in a light crispy batter and served with an achiote, coriander yoghurt & peanut sauce.
The Mr Miyagi (£7) was as closes to sashimi as you could get but packed with a lovely citrusy flavour. Generous slivers of Salmon tiradito with Nikkei tiger’s milk, pomegranate, purple shiso & salmon scratching.
Harry & the team import the limes and chillies from Peru to ensure they contain the same authentic flavours as the dishes which inspired Harry on his travels & they shine through beautifully in this dish.For main courses we shared plates of Super Pollo (£8.50) - tender pieces of chargrilled chicken with a spicy rocotto and piquillo pepper salsa.
Anticucho de res (£8) - another of my favourites. Grilled beef heart on skewers with a sweet potato mayonnaise (yes I did say heart) Not to everyone of the table's taste but I thought it was delicious. It's got a slightly more offal-y (yes I did make that word up) taste than regular beef but still every tasty.
Alexandra, we managed to polish off two bowls - it's a deconstructed version of a classic cheesecake but the passionfruit flavour was so good. I would go back for two more bowls now if I could.
The food and the whole vibe of Senor Ceviche is brilliant, we were there on a Monday evening and the place was pretty much fully booked for the whole evening. They also have a killer cocktail list which we were treated to through-out the evening (being Monday I sipped rather than guzzled like usual) but I recommend the Pisco sours if you can hold your liquor.
It's great to see a team so passionate about the food and drink they're serving so do yourself a favour and book yourself in so you can experience the tastes of Peru for yourself.
