LC: La Cofradia, can I help you?
NT: Yeah, hello, I heard ceviche is good to keep mosquitoes from biting...
LC: Hmm. This the first time I hear that...
NT: Yeah it's something about ceviche and stuff like that and things of that nature, something about the enzymes. Which one do you recommend?
LC: I think that the Rocoto Chili or maybe the Yellow Chili will be good for that. Maybe the spice have something to do with it?
NT: Okay, thanks I'm on my way.

In the process of writing this I realized I have no idea what Leche De Tigre is so I called back and found out that it's the juice made from lime, celery, garlic, salt and Lima chili pepper that is used to cook the ceviche. I also learned that "the juice that stays on the plate after you're done eating, sometimes you mix it with Pisco (Peruvian brandy) or Vodka and do a shot of that." If that don't keep the skeeters away so be it, at least you won't get stung on the bill.
