Review: Andina London

A few weeks ago, I finally went for dinner at Andina. I’m actually a little embarrassed that it’s taken me so long, as I travel past it every day and took a Pisco Sour Masterclass there over a year ago. If you’re not familiar with it, Andina London is the second restaurant from Ceviche‘s Martin…

New Kids on the Block: Señor Ceviche and Pachamama

Summer may be drawing to an end but there’s still plenty to be excited about; we have two more Peruvian restaurants coming to London! Peruvian food is taking the capital by storm. Just three years ago, I had but a handful of South American restaurants to review. Nowadays it’s a very different story – I…

Don Ceviche Masterclass at Ceviche

Happy National Pisco Day!  Today is a day of celebration for Peru’s national drink, Pisco. Peru’s day of celebration also happened to coincide with my masterclass at Ceviche in Soho. A birthday present from my lovely friends, I visited Martin Morales’ flagship restaurant to learn the secrets of creating the perfect ‘Don Ceviche’, whilst sipping a…

Pisco Sour Masterclasses at Andina

I’m a fussy cocktail drinker. When it comes to my alcoholic beverages, I prefer a sour drink to a sugary sweet concoction. So it’s no surprise that I love a good Pisco Sour. As the national cocktail of Peru, the Pisco Sour is quite unique. Pisco itself is a relatively unknown spirit; a grape brandy…

Review: Sñr Ceviche

Pop-up restaurants have taken the capital by storm; eating at temporary, makeshift restaurants with a one-off set menu is in vogue. They usually only run for a month or two and book up fast. As quickly as they ‘pop-up’, they then disappear, before relocating to another place. Pop-ups are a great way for restaurateurs to…

Ceviche…again.

I am a woman of my word. I said I’d go back to Ceviche…so I did! And it was as good, if not better! The Sakura Maru ceviche and Causa Santa Rosa made another appearance, but the show-stopper was the crispy pork belly with mole style black beans and potato. Smoky, nutty and sweet all…

The New Comedor Grill & Bar

Everyone knows that being a food critic comes with certain perks: being paid to write about restaurants and generally eating for free. Yep, that’s a lot of people’s dream job right there. It’s the day job that I think most food bloggers aspire to have. Yet, I’m sure I don’t speak for myself when I…

Recipe: Smoked Haddock Ceviche

The beauty of ceviche is that once you know how to make one type, you can be as creative as you like with the fish ingredients. As a lover of smoked fish, I thought I’d try making a traditional style ceviche but use smoked haddock instead of the usual unsmoked white fish. I was hoping…

Comedor Grill & Bar, Islington

Venturing into the North London dining scene is an exciting experience for me. Being more of a South Londoner, I rarely get to go out for dinner on the opposite side of the city. There’s no excuse really, as North London has an abundance of international restaurants and cafés, including a number of notable Latin…

Ceviche, Soho

I have a dream…a dream where South American food is craved by the British public and is firmly set within the British psyche. We’re taking our time, but the UK is finally starting to take an interest in the latest international cuisine to find itself higher up on the food agenda. There’s definitely still a long way…

National Ceviche Day

Ceviche Mixto  To mark Peru’s National Ceviche Day, I made my flatmate and I a celebratory dinner. Ceviche Mixto: fish, mussels and prawns. A little fancier than my basic ceviche dishes with the mixed seafood. Colourful, zesty and refreshing, it was the perfect meal for a hot sunny day. 150g of filleted white fish (e.g….

It’s all about Ceviche

Ceviche: potentially one of the most iconic Latin American delicacies. Up and down the coastal regions of Central and South America, you will find variations of the zesty raw fish dish. Put simply, ceviche (or cebiche) is raw fish “cooked” by citric juice, in a type of marinade. Ceviche can be dated back to the earliest…
