Has anyone had really good ceviche lately? I recently made the mistake of ordering ceviche at Malibu Seafood.

  1. I had good ceviche at Pacifico's in Culver City. I also make my own using fresh Chilean Sea Bass, fresh lime juice, celantro and a little salsa. Chill for 30 min.

    1. Las Quenas [Peruvian Restaurant], on Sherman Way and Bellaire Avenue in North Hollywood. Make sure -- even though it sounds gross -- that you get some octopus in yours because it is just plain delicious.

      1. Los Balcones del Peru has truly awesome ceviche if you can bare the bitty service.
        Here's the link to a JGold review that includes address etc:
        I also am fond of the ceviches at El Polla Inka and if you visit the Torrance branch you can get a Pisco Sour, a foamy gorgeous cocktail not readily available in LA.

          I second Los Balcones del Peru. Really good stuff.

        2. I highly recommend the ceviche at Border Grill. I'm not a fan of the shrimp, but the seabass and the ono (served tiradito-style) are really yummy.

          1. Best ceviche I've had in greater L.A. is at Kotosh at Kamiyama, a hole-in-the-wall in Lomita.

              Had a dish called "cebiche misto" at Kotosh -- BIG portion, enough for a dinner entree, although I think it appears on the menu as an appetizer. It consists of a wide variety of fish with a very tart citrus dressing.
