Eat This Now: La Paz Ceviche at Ceviche House
The Dish: La Paz Ceviche
The Chef/Owner: Juan Carlos Récamier
The Restaurant: Ceviche House, 2415 San Diego Avenue, Old Town, San Diego (Open lunch and dinner, closed Mondays)
The Details: Bigeye tuna marinated in a ginger and habanero sauce, with cucumber and orange zest.
Why it’s so good: Ceviche House is the first restaurant certified by the San Diego Food System Alliance’s FishTales pilot campaign that verifies businesses committed to sourcing local seafood. The bigeye tuna in the La Paz Ceviche is harvested by San Diego Fishermen, and the freshness is evident in the flavor. This is the spiciest ceviche on the menu, with a tangy kick. Récamier says the ginger, lime, and habanero balance out very nicely and although it might seem like a sweet flavor profile, it has a very nice savory finish.”
