Ceviche at Pio Pioa and elsewhere

Canchito (J. DiStefano) | Apr 10, 2002 04:00 PM

Last night my fiancee and I went to Pio Pio for the first time in about a month. I was very excited to notice they had ceviche on the menu, usually they reserve it for the weekends. I'm a BIG fan of good ceviche and had been meaning to try theirs for quite some time. I should have known something was wrong when I noticed it smelled a little fishy. A liberal application of hot sauce took care of that funkiness. The worst was over, or so I thought, until I was awakened in the middle of the night with gastric distress. I'll readily admit that it could have been an unwashed bit of vegetable in the avocado salad, but nevertheless, I found the ceviche quality to be lacking. Has anyone else had any experience with Pio Pio's ceviche (good, bad or otherwise)? I should mention that the chicken was great as usual, though the servers seemed a bit spacey/slow.

On another note I've been to Inti Raymi (37th Ave. & 86th?), La Pericholi (Corona Ave. in the vicinity of the Ice King) and Chabuca Limena, which is my hands-down fave for Peruvian food in the nabe. There are numerous places in the Corona/JH vicinity that serve Peruvian style ceviche, I'm curious to know if anyone has tried them?

Eat on,
