La Bodega

Want to try ceviche for the first time but unsure of where to go? La Bodega whips up this dish like a good South American mother would -- with fresh fish, shrimp, octopus, and squid marinated in lime juice and smothered in red onions and cilantro. A chunk of sweet potato and, of course, Peruvian corn nuts come on the side. And although the prevalent language at this establishment is Spanish, after taking one bite of tender pescado, any customer will feel at home. Or, at the very least, in one's own kitchen pantry, being that this restaurant doubles as a grocery store. If seafood isn't your thing, meat dishes such as lomo saltado (sautéed beef with onions and tomatoes) come in large portions and with sides of rice and French fries. Make sure to try a glass of chicha morada, a sweet purple fermented beverage made with black maize; it's brewed fresh and chilled right behind the counter.
