There’s a new chico in town … and his name is C’Viche. Get your ass into this play ASAP, because it’s f**king delicious.
Their cocktails pack a punch and are a perfect complement to their Mexican and South American food. They have an extensive full bar with some more exotic options, so you can get traditional margaritas or get a little crazy with Pisco drinks. Check out some details of my visit below.
We started with their complimentary chips & salsa while we poured over their menu. Their food options are limited in the most perfect way–they don’t do all that much, but what they do, they do really damn well. Their menu is literally five simple sections … ceviches (obvi.)and crudos, specialties, quesadillas, “snacks”, and tacos.
In the meantime, we ordered a couple drinks with the help of the owner and chef, Randall–Jackie* went with their mojito and I opted for a Pisco Sour … because Pisco. Jackie hadn’t tried Pisco, so we were given small tastes to sip. If you want to know more about Pisco, check out #SDDContributor Brian’s review or mine from ages ago!
Their bar is pretty extensive, offering “100% agave Mexican tequilas & mezcal, Caribbean rums, Brazilian cachaça and Argentinian Pisco”. You can also opt for their local or Mexican & South American beers on tap or some wine. But, when in C’Viche …
Their food is unexpectedly good. Though, they’re owned by the same guy as Clark Food & Wine Company, so I should have known better … because that place is legit.) The food is inspired by Mexican and South American cuisine and makes the food its own in a special and delicious way.
My absolute favorite food item we tried was the Tuna Crudo “Poke Style” (tuna crudo, tamari, ginger, and scallions). Jackie and I had a little fork fight over who got the last piece … I kid you not. We also got into some serious queso business along with their Street Style Corn and Avocado Fries. Not to be missed is their fresh fish, which you can choose which fish you prefer, chopped (ceviche) or sashimi style (crudo), which style you’d like (Baja, Peruvian, island, or Asian), and you can even have them make it into a salad for just $2.
The atmosphere is decided casual thanks to the nice natural light it lets in, red metal bar stools, industrial lights, and cement floors. The music keeps it light and the staff lights to kid around … which just makes things a little more fun.
Stop into C’Viche soon and get you some of their tuna crudo to accompany their new happy hour specials.
