Some of the best ceviche in Portugal
Lisbon has its fair share of Peruvian restaurants these days and ceviche is becoming almost as ubiquitous as the hamburger. But Peru’s citrus-marinated national fish dish is done particularly well at Segundo Muelle, even though it’s a chain. Some ceviches here are more traditional than others, served with that extra-large corn that just yells Andes at you, others are smart reincarnations using what’s local to Lisbon’s shores. All of them, on Atlas’ visit — and we tried all of them — were perfectly marinated and divinely mixed, served cold and fast, by an attentive staff. And despite the somewhat too-modern interior one wouldn’t associated with Peru, it’s a perfect eatery to come with family and friends. This isn’t a place to stuff yourself silly, though, as the price tag is a bit steep. Nonetheless, the pisco sours here are at least a euro cheaper than that other Peruvian restaurant that’s been in all of the magazines. And they don’t serve it in a champagne glass, either, which is always a plus for those macho types looking for a deep South American buzz. The desserts, too, are worth stopping by even if you’re not planning to eat anything else.
