best ceviche in Austin?
The best ceviche I've had is on the beach in Mexico. Freshness makes a huge difference. I've tried it in a number of places in Austin.
Dona Emilas - best so far
Saba - OK, more fruit than fish, though
Curra's - better than Saba, not as good as Dona Emila's
Other places - I don't even remember them, so probably worse than Saba
Any other places I should try?
Not a traditonal ceviche, but Uchi's ucheviche (spelling?) is always a must order for me. Tyson tends to switch up the recipe depending on what's fresh that night but it consists of salmon and a white fish (I think the menu states red snapper) with red and orange bell peppers, and tomatoes in a light citrus/oil blend. It's always been one of my favorites on the cold tasting menu aside from the Crudo...yummmm Crudo!
Fonda San Miguel's Ceviche Veracruzano is the best in Austin, $10. If you want to save a coupla bucks, El Chile on Manor has a decent tilapia ceviche; $6 for the small or $8 for a large. I'm eager to try Tacodeli's (Aus Chron Critic's Pick for Best Ceviche in their 2007 Restaurant Poll).
