Divino Ceviche

There are two locations of this more updated take on a cevicheria, and both are equally good. You’ll find a lot of spruced up Limeño classics at Divino Ceviche (not to be confused with Ceviches by Divino in Miami Beach) similar to the food you see in Lima’s more upscale, contemporary restaurants. The menu steers clear of being too experimental, though, and many Peruvian expats will recognize the dishes here, including the mini tacu tacus. These little squares of crispy rice and canary bean cakes get topped with a tiny steak, a sunny side up quail’s egg, and just a spoonful of sarsa criolla. It’s like an adorable scaled-down version of a traditional tacu tacu a lo pobre, but what makes this place unique are the hard-to-find Amazonian specialties. Amazonian-style chaufa is always on the menu, featuring fried rice studded with a type of smoked pork called cecina and diced sweet plantains. They also feature other Amazonian dishes, like tacachos, as daily specials from time to time.
