A few months back, I spent five glorious days in Costa Rica and kept good on my vow to eat as much as possible. One of my (many) favorite dishes was the freshest ceviche I’ve ever tasted, from a restaurant called Tabanuco—and every ceviche I’ve had since has been a bitter disappointment. That is, until Cevich entered my life.
Located near Union Square, this little eatery serves up authentic Peruvian ceviche with global twists. Besides traditional leche de tigre, there’s a Greek-inspired version with savory kalamata olive sauce, cucumber, cherry tomato and feta, as well as “Lime N Da Coconut,” a variation with creamy coconut ginger sauce, mango and cilantro. Crispy plantain chips serve as a delicious vessel for the ceviche of your choice. My only recommendation would be to grab your little bowl of heaven to-go—because nothing goes better with this dish than a homemade margarita.
