La Mar Cebicheria Peruana's Ceviches and Tiraditos
This week, Counter Culture ascends the Andean heights of La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, at our new branch of a celebrated Lima ceviche restaurant, where, in addition to fancified native ceviches, the menu dabbles in the Peruvian version of sashimi, called tiraditos. The raw-fish component is unqualifiedly excellent; you'll have to read the review for our opinion of the other stuff.
By contrast, the ceviche called Chifa is a tangled but delicious mass of hamachi, pickled vegetables, micro-herbs, and wontons (a "chifa" is a South American-style Chinese restaurant) in a black-sesame leche de tigre dressing.
