So I think its safe to say that ceviche is my new fave food at the moment. I know its very “on trend” right now, but that’s not why. I have always been a massive fan of sashimi and ceviche is essentially that, but with some added incredible flavours. So I was incredibly excited to try Señor Ceviche over in Kingly Court for the first time.
I love Kingly Court generally, tucked away between Piccadilly and Oxford circus it has such a lovely mix of places. If your ever stuck for somewhere to go for dinner or just drinks, head over there.
Anyway, back to my new fave place! The restaurant itself isn’t huge, so i would recommend booking in advance if your going to head over and try it. But its decorated really nicely with a real homely feel to it, lots of colour and low lighting.
The menu is inspired by Peruvian cuisine with a mixture of street food snacks, fresh ceviches and some BBQ options for those that aren’t a fan of fish. It’s tapas style sharing plates, so I would recommend ordering about 3 per person depending on how hungry you all are. My lovely pal Shay and I ordered roughly that.
Because its tapas style they don’t really have starters and mains, and everything is brought out as and when its ready. The first lot of beautiful dishes to arrives at our table were the calamares, the clasíco ceviche (sea bass) and the mr miyagi ceviche (salmon).
Everything was delicious. The clasíco sauce had the most incredible mix of flavours, sweet and spicy all at the same time. It was so good I honestly sipped just the sauce with a spoon once we had finished all the sea bass! The salmon was also incredible. The pomegranate seeds gave it bursts of sweetness that balanced out the soy and tiger’s milk perfectly.
Next our Flat iron steak arrived along with the sweet potato fries and black and white quinoa salad.
The steak was cooked perfectly, lovely and pink in the middle with a nice crust around the edge. It was also topped with an amazing uchucuta sauce which was to die for! The sweet potato fries were as to be expected and the quinoa salad was a nice light refreshing addition.
Once we had demolished all that we decided we couldn’t resist one last ceviche so ordered a portion of the spaniard (sea bass and king prawn).
Another incredible mix of flavours, the perfect balance of spice but not too spicy.
I really cant recommend this place enough, the food is incredible, the service was great and the atmosphere was really fun. It’s not overly pricey either, all that food and one cocktail came to £33 each. Make sure you check it out. A great date night spot or perfect if there’s a big group of you too, your only problem with be choosing how many of each to have!
