Q'ero doesn't get a lot of traction on this board, so I thought I'd give it a little love :-)

It's now open for a few hours on Sunday, from late morning to late afternoon with an easy menu. A friend and I had a late lunch there today and split the following:

Ceviche Mixto, a lovely blend of fish, shrimp and octopus (tho' very little octopus) in a light marinade. It was served in a large leaf of butter lettuce and garnished with impossibly thin slices of red onion, choclo (to fat, chewy/starch corn kernels) and crispy corn. It's a large app and suitable for sharing.

Chupe de Camarones, basically a shrimp soup that was choke full of shrimp, rice, sliced potato, an egg and finished with a touch of cream. Being a marginally cold day by San Diego standards we pretty much slurped this down :-)

Chaufa de Camarone, yes it was a shrimpy kinda day, and this shrimp fried rice was delicious, not oily and not drowned in soy sauce.

We each had a glass of the house sangria and passed on dessert. It was a delightful meal and well worth considering if you're in the Encinitas area.
