Ceviche has been among the most popular of recent London food fads, and it hasn’t ever really disappeared, which is great news as it’s a terrific dish when done well.
Señor Ceviche (probably not his real name) was one of last year’s star turns, and in May he returns to London with a short residency at the Imperial Arms in Fulham. The sum of £25 will get you a four course menu of Peruvian food, including confit duck lollipops, chicken anticuchos (skewered meat) and, inevitably, several varieties of ceviche. Here’s the full menu. Drinks cost extra (£7 for a cocktail, £3.50 for a beer).
The pop-up is on 3, 9, 16 and 23 May; to book a place, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07540 624255.
The Peruvian theme continues over in Clapton with Pisco Fuego, a Latin-tinged “drinking and dining experience”. The event is held on 17 and 18 May at The Depot on Upper Clapton Road. Tickets are limited to 30 each night, and cost £40, which comprises a seven course meal and a cocktail on entry.
