A Cevicheria
© Ana Luzia

It wasn't Lisbon's first Kiko Martins-led restaurant (that would be O Talho) but it was the one that put him in the map. It became one of the city's most popular locations. Cevicheria was born to pay tribute to Peru's national dish, by serving it with salmon, tuna and even codfish, but the best version, the one worth waiting in line for, is the pure ceviche: seasonal white fish, puréed sweet-potato, onions, seaweed and tiger's milk.

Time Out tips:

– Wait for a table with a glass (or two, or three) of pisco sour in your hand.

– To finish your meal, go for a surf & turf mini-sandwich with pork belly and shrimp.

– If you want people on social networks to know where you are, take a picture of the giant octopus on the ceiling.

I walked up a very steep hill to get to A Cevicheria but it was so worth it. I recommend making reservations, as I dined on a late Tuesday evening and the place was packed. Waiting wasn't a problem since the bar has a walk-up window where you can order cocktails and beer to enjoy on a couple of high-top tables set up on the sidewalk. If possible, snag a seat at the counter. Part of the fun of eating at A Cevicheria is watching the chefs masterfully plate dishes like ceviche and causa, which is piled high with fresh fish, bonito flakes and other ingredients. Service is excellent. Our waitress advised us on portions and parsed out the dishes to make sure we had an enjoyable dining experience. 

Foi com a abertura deste restaurante do chef Kiko que travei conhecimento com a palavra "ceviche". Aqui o peixe cru marinado em sumo de limão é rei e é sempre incrível olhar para aquele polvo gigante pendurado no tecto, armado em lustre de cristais.

Não há outro ceviche assim em Lisboa, apesar das imitações. Acabe-se com o salmão e será cinco estrelas. Balcão lindo!

O melhor peruano de Lisboa. Tem o ambiente certo, a iluminação certa e a cozinha com bons produtos. Só é pena ser tão difícil arranjar mesa.
