A Piece of Peru Landed in Miami

If you live in South Florida or are just visiting the Miami area and want to feast on authentic Peruvian food Ceviche 105 is hands down the best restaurant to visit. Not only is the food unreal but the service is excellent and the wait staff is more then helpful as they are willing to guide and suggest dishes to anyone who is an amateur when it comes to Peruvian cuisine. Not only is the food authentic but it is one of the few establishments in South Florida where authentic Peruvian drinks such as Pisco can be enjoyed.

What was most enjoyable about this restaurant is that even though the entrees are not labeled as “family size” the portions are huge and a couple dishes can easily feed 3 people. It makes it a great way to get a few healthy portions of a couple different entrees.

My table ordered Lomo Salteado, Ceviche seafood orgy and Arroz Con Mariscos (seafood and rice). All of the dishes were absolutely fantastic. My personal favorite was the Ceviche seafood orgy which is a medley of raw seafood that is marinated and served in tiger milk. The tastes of this fish literally makes your pallet explode.  If you want to kick it up a notch ask your waiter for a side of Rocoto Sauce (careful though, it has quite a kick). The Lomo Salteado was some of the tastiest, tender meat I have ever had. It made the expression “melt in your mouth” literal. While still delicious my least favorite dish was the Arroz con Mariscos, a fried rice with various sorts of seafood including shrimp and calamari and mussels. Probably because by the time I got around to trying it I was already stuffed from the other two dishes! I couldn’t stop eating!!

All in all one of the best dining experiences I have had in Miami. I loved the New York loft feeling that the restaurants design gives off along with being able to eat high quality food in a relaxed, casual environment.
