Restaurant Review: Ceviche Soho, London

The Effective Event Solutions team have traveled all over the globe running inspiring events, but it is always a joy to find authentic international food available when we’re back on British soil!

Last week we were up in London catching up with clients and went to check out Ceviche in the Soho area of the city. Just off the beautiful Soho square this little gem looks like a trendy bar from the street but opens out into a larger dining space at the rear of the building.

One of South America’s best kept secrets the classic ceviche dish has been brought to new audiences in recent years. The method involves cooking with the acidic juice of citrus fruits instead of traditional heat cooking, this preserves the beautiful texture of fresh fish and seafood with a delicious tang.

At Ceviche Soho the citrus-cured fish is available in a variety of forms, other traditional Preuvian dishes such as chargrilled skewers are also available along with an extensive cocktail menu (we opted for classic Pisco Sours – highly recommended!).

Drunk Scallops were a definite favourite – finely sliced discs of king scallop bathed in pisco, lime, chilli, pomegranate and corriander. The ‘house dish’; Don Ceviche is also top notch – meaty sea bass surrounded by amarillo chilli ‘tiger’s milk’ with chilli, red onion and fresh coriander, garnished with sweet potato crisps.

For an informal lunch you can prop up the steel counter-bar, grab dinner on a high wooden table in the restaurant or book the whole place for a fabulous sharing supper and cocktail party with authentic Peruvian pzazz!
