Yum! I loved trying all the different ceviches, and each one was unique with a completely different flavor profile. For someone who likes trying a bit of everything, this sampler was perfect!

Jalea – Fresca

Jalea - Fresca
Lima style fried calamari, shrimp, scallop and fish, yuca, cancha, huacatay tartar sauce. $15

Mmm, this was great! I loved the breading of the fried seafood, and everything was still tender and juicy. I’ll definitely order this again in the future.

Camarones al pisco – Fresca

Camarones al pisco - Fresca
Marinated sauteed shrimp, garlic, pisco, spicy tomato sauce with a touch of cream, grilled garlic toast. $14

This dish was really tasty! The shrimp were well prepared and the tomato sauce was delicious. I was glad that they gave us more bread because the two dinky pieces was definitely not enough to sop up the yummy sauce. Noms!

I love getting the trio (or quarto) at Fresca because you get to try a variety of their ceviches and the price is great. This time around, I really liked the mixto. It’s the most traditional one, but I really just liked the flavors. I was surprised by the ceviche passion with it’s passion fruit dressing. It tasted pretty good!

Plantain chips - Fresca
Plantain chips. $5
I think it’s kinda lame that you have to pay for plantain chips. They should just give you less and make it complimentary.
