Best ceviche in town?

Curious to hear what places in and around Boston have really good, fresh, tasty ceviche. Thanks!

  1. I don't know about "best", but I'm fond of the ceviches at Rincon LimeƱo, a Peruvian place in Eastie. I've had some nice, fancier versions at Rendezvous in Central Square.

    The crudos (crudi, I suppose) at places like Neptune Oyster, Erbaluce, Coppa, and Toro are also worth checking out.

      I think Rincon Limeno is hard to beat..good value, tasty, easy parking.

        Agreed, hard to beat, but that's why I was all the more impressed by the ceviche at Machu Picchu.

        Also tried Tico (tiny portion, flavors too subtle, not punchy) and Eastern Standard recently and both paled in comparison to the Peruvian joints.

          Agree with you on Tico - fancier fish, but tiny amount for the price and not punchy - great choice of words.

    2. The ceviche at Tico is the best I've had in the city (and I'm not the biggest fan of Tico overall). The scallop ceviche is truly, truly special, but all the versions I've had there are excellent. Good balance of chili, citrus acidity, and fat. Someone knows what they're doing.
