When I was planning my trip to Colombia “La Cevicheria” was on my bucket list. When I arrived and saw the waiting queue with a lot of tourists I reconsidered it and didn’t want to go anymore, because
- (a) touristy location: nope
- (b) waiting: nope (you cannot reserve – first comes first serves)
BUT: My Colombian friend convinced me to go, speaking of incredibly good ceviche. So hey, I was passing by the restaurant at 6 pm and it looked like I would have luck… and I did: I only had to wait 1 minute and was seated promptly – yeah!
I had the Ceviche with squid, fish, conch, lemon juice, coconut milk, coconut, coriander, mint, garlic, coconut flakes. It was sooooo delicious – best ceviche I ever had. I also tried the “ceviche” caliente, with warm shrimps and melted mozarella cheese – good if you do not like a cold platter.
The (medium sized) portions were already big enough to leave with a satisfied stomach. But I wouldn’t be a foodie if I have not tried any other offering, right? So I also took the Paella with Lobster and it was great. A lot of Lobster “meat” in the Paella – yummy!
So, this is a place where you should go if staying in Cartagena!
