I kept passing up this place on Pico Blvd between Arlington and Crenshaw and finally paid them a visit this week. La cevicheria calls itself a seafood grill, and they do make fish/shrimp tacos and all, but I was curious about their ceviches. The owner was very welcoming and helpful, and they do make a variety of ceviches. Besides the Mexican versions of ceviche and cocteles, they also make Peruvian style ceviches which are made to order (takes a half hour for the ceviche to properly marinade after you order). I was there to pick up something quick for lunch, so I ordered the coctel with everything, called "vuelve a la vida" (return to life) on the menu. It contained shrimp, oysters, abalone, octopus, crab, and fish, and it made for a nice light lunch. Only drawback was that the crab was fakemeat, but everything else was very good. Since I'm only visiting LA (my home town), I probably won't get another chance to do further reconnaisance on La Cevicheria, but I am optimistic based on this one experience. Curious to know if anyone else has had a chance to check this place out.
