Good Ceviche - citrus and onion NOT ketchup based

js76wisco | May 11, 2009 02:32 PM

So I'm not the biggedt ceviche fan but when it starts to get hot out I like to indulge in a nice ceviche. My idea of ceviche is nice fresh fish that is cooked in citrus of some sort then accompanied by other flavors like onion. I'm very fond of the ceviche they have at Balcones del Peru - it has great notes of citrus and onions strewn around the entire fish/shrimp. The last couple of times I've had ceviche in Mexican restaurants they are usually of the ketchup based cocktail with a heavy tomato taste. I'm not a very big fan of this version as I like the citrus and onion flavors. One time was in Xihautanejo and the other was yesterday at Tacos Bajas Ensenada (just stick to the fish tacos). Are there any other places that have the very fresh citrusy tasting ceviche in LA that you enjoy? I live around Olympic and Robertson. I don't mind driving but Balcones is about 20 minutes from my house with traffic and I only go there about once a month. I'd like to try some others and compare.
