Ceviche is generally considered to be the signature Peruvian dish: an exquisite combination of local seafood cured in Peruvian lemon juice with fresh coriander, aji pepper, and onions. The dish is usually served with corn and sweet potato to balance out the spicy, sour taste.
The Pacific coast of northern Peru might be the best place to enjoy ceviche. If you find yourself in Piura, enjoying Mancora Beach, be sure to try the local favorite La Sirena. Prepare to fill your stomach with a huge ceviche plate packed with seafood and flavor!
