Ceviche House


Good, but expensive

Ceviche house is a small restaurant serving your standard Peruvian food fares.

I went there for lunch and we ordered mixed Ceviche and “Arroz Chaufa“. For those of you that have not tried either of these dishes, you have no idea what you are missing out on.

Ceviche most people know what it is, raw seafood cooked in lime juice, very nice, very flavorful, and no, it is not like sushi. While the Ceviche here is not the best I have had, it quite good, especially when you consider that not many places here in Orlando can actually make a decent one.Arroz Chaufa

Arroz Chaufa” is quite a strange dish, not in flavor, but in how it came to be. You see, Arroz Chaufa, or Chaufa Rice, is actually Chinese Rice with a Peruvian twist. You see, Peru had a large influx of Chinese immigrants, and for some reason unbeknownst to me, they adopted and adapted this dish and made it a Peruvian staple.

I personally prefer the Peruvian version of Chinese rice, they add beef, chicken, squid, and shrimp. If you do go to Peruvian restaurant, please do order a plate of mixed Chaufa rice, you will not regret it.Ceviche

The bad thing about Ceviche House, honestly, for what it is, it is quite expensive, the bill came to almost $50 for two.

The price thing unfortunately is an ongoing situation with ethnic restaurants in Orlando. I think it is due to the lack of competition, unlike Miami where there are hundred of restaurants from every corner of Latin America.

Will I return? Yes, I really like ceviche and chaufa rice, and like I stated before, in Orlando there are not that many places to get this.
