When I went took a trip to Kingly Court, which you can read about here, it was for a lunch meeting to chat with Bethan Harris, who organises all the events and goings on at Kingly Court. We met at Peruvian restaurant Señor Ceviche on the second floor of the food court.
This was my first time trying Peruvian cuisine, so I was quite excited to try it! I’m always one for trying new foods and find people who don’t try things before saying they don’t like it, baffling. Our waitress advised us that all the dishes were tapas style and that three dishes per person was the recommended amount. Here’s what we ordered:
Yucas – Fried cassava with aji panca sour cream
Señor Ceviche – Sea bream with aji amarillo tiger’s milk, avocado & tempura baby squid
Flat Iron Anticuchos – Beef skewers with aji panca anticucho sauce
Tamarind BBQ chicken Anticuchos – Chicken skewers with sticky tamarind BBQ sauce & aji amarillo anticucho sauce
Cusco Quinoa – Roasted vegetables, edamame beans, giant choclo corn & crumbly queso
Limeno Classico Ceviche - Sea bream with aji amarillo tiger’s milk, sweet potato, red onion & coriander
All the dishes I feel were reasonably priced and definitely value for money, with all the portions a good sharing size. Our yucas arrived first, which is a South American vegetable that tasted a little similar to potato. The sour cream complimented them great! Then we were served our senor ceviche that had a bit of a kick to it, as it’s cooked in tiger’s milk. The spice wasn’t overpowering though by any means, and the added tempura squid (if you like calamari you’ll love these) were a bonus!
When it comes to food, I’m a meat lover. Both meat dishes, the beef and chicken anticuchos were fantastic, the beef especially. I’d actually say they were my favourite. The cusco quinoa was fruity and had plenty of flavour, but this wasn’t to my taste, but 5/6 isn’t bad at all!
Thank you to Bethan for introducing me to tasty Peruvian food and Kingly Court. If anyone is in London soon and wants to try something different, then head to Señor Ceviche!
