Kingly Court has recently become the food court of Soho. With Chinese, Japanese, American, British, Italian and Caribbean restaurants all in residency (check out The Rum Kitchen and Cahoots for pre-dinner drinks), it was only a matter of time before a Peruvian place popped up.
With a series of successful temporary gigs under its belt already, Señor Ceviche is now hanging about rather more permanently on Kingly Court, because this is one eatery I can see myself going back to regularly.
With Peruvian music that’s almost-but-not-quite too loud, walls and floors tiled in rainbow bright ceramic squares, and an open kitchen where you can watch chef Ross Clarke (ex Dirty Bones and Fat Duck Experimental Kitchen) do his thing, Señor Ceviche is polished and slick, and a hell of a lot of fun.
Drink the Slush Puppy-style Señor’s Frozen Sour with pisco (£6.50) and gnaw on Chifa Chicharonnes (slow cooked, crispy pork belly with sweet soy sauce) while perusing the menu.
Top menu tip-offs include the signature Señor Ceviche dish of sea bream ceviche (with tiger’s milk and tempura baby squid – £8) and the mind-blowingly good Pachamanca Pork Ribs with sticky Nikkei BBQ sauce & peanuts (£10)…
…and the Flat Iron Anticuchos beef skewers (£8). Oh and the Passion Fruit Posset pudding (£5) packs a fruity punch that’s not to be missed.
Hearty meal for two (excluding drinks) around £60.
