Peruvian cuisine has taken London by storm in recent times, and much of the credit for this rather appetising revolution lies firmly on the shoulders of Martin Morales, the chef and music producer and his world-class team. Ceviche Old Street is a winner of no less than two Best Restaurant in the UK Awards and is also Michelin Guide listed. With a kicking bar and a phenomenal selection of light and main dishes for everyone, from vegan to locally-sourced grilled meat options and vegetarian to gluten-free, Ceviche Old Street promises to push the new wave of Peruvian cuisine even farther into London’s dining scene. It’s also a top art gallery and has regular live music – reserve a table now.
Ceviche, along Old Street in Soho, takes its name from the dish most associated with Peruvian cuisine, in which raw fish and seafood is marinated in citrus and seasoning, and served with an array of sides. It’s as simple as sushi, twice as delicious, and pretty as the Pacific. Second time’s a charm, we say, and it’s a delicious blessing that London is now graced by not one but two places where you can enjoy Martin Morales’ now legendary take on Peruvian cuisine. Morales’ first restaurant, Andina in Shoreditch, is among the top restaurants in London. Not one to lose momentum – this is a guy who DJ’d and chef’d at the same time, was a producer for EMI and ran iTunes Europe and Disney Music – Morales has built on Andina’s success (he sold his house for that first gamble), and given us Ceviche.
A combination of Peruvian kitchen and pisco bar, Ceviche does everything with a slice of chicha, the distinctly Peruvian quality of good-natured cheek. Health-conscious and ever-hungry London will be pleased to hear that Amazonian and Andean superfoods feature heavily on the menus, as do interesting fusion cuisines, represented by dishes of Peruvian-Chinese, Peruvian-Japanese, Afro-Peruvian and Criollo (creole) extraction. Ceviche Old Street remains true to big sister Andina’s winning combination of lively pisco disco atmosphere and fresh, delicious food, but will be introducing some other innovations, too. For the curious, your ceviche can be prepared, and customised, right before your eyes. London’s Peruvian food revolution is only just beginning to turn up the heat.Dear diners, to view Ceviche Old Street's range of gift cards and masterclasses, visit ceviche.giftvouchers.uk.com
We had a lovely birthday party and enjoyed the food very much
Lovely staff, beautiful food, and excellent value! 10/10! Only thing I would change would be the portion size 3/4 per person. Highly recommend stone and coal, it was excellent!
