OK, I will ask....

Can you describe what you mean by cheviche?

when I Googled, I only came up with some sort of Peruvian seafood dish which I never heard of before. Sounds like a food-cart special.

??????

Yep, ceviche is a Peruvian seafood dish. Uncooked. Well, that's not true. It's not cooked in the traditional sense but marinated in citrus (lime, lemon, etc.) which essentially kills harmful parasites. Think sushi, in a way.

The only place I can think that may have this is Andina, but, meh, I dunno. They get such high reviews but I just don't see what's so special about them. Peruvian food is delicious, simple, peasant food anything else is just slapping a big price tag on it and using different words to describe what doesn't need improving.

Whoops! Off on a tangent! My mistake!

Perhaps there is a Peruvian food cart out there someone knows of?

Do a search here:
Food Carts Portland

I found a couple of hits....

But to be honest, your description sound a lot tastier than what I found being offered. But then again this is the first I have heard about ceviche.

(Oh, thanks for describing it for us.)

Try here.

cha taqueria 503.295.4077

Ceviche is very popular in Mexico. Check out the Mexican restaurants in your area. Or make your own. It's very easy.

Ah ha! Nice find, sayulita. Plus, it's on the happy hour menu.

I've been meaning to make my own for month now but I just haven't gotten around to it, not that it's very difficult, high quality of ingredients seem to be more important.

Thanks again!

For really fresh fish (for make-it-yourself), try Uwajimaya Asian grocery store in Beaverton. Some of their fish in still swimming!

Uwajimaya certainly has a great seafood selection but I dare not travel to the 'burbs unless it's necessity. In Portland metro, the best seafood places I have found are ironically both located along the same street!

ABC Seafood (6509 SE Powell Blvd.)
Powell Street Fish Market (3380 SE Powell Blvd.)

I have a much simpler recipe for Mexican ceviche. Now I'm going to have to go out & buy the ingredients & make some. I love ceviche!
