Cape Town is extremely well-known for its variety of single-dish restaurants with eateries boasting everything from ramen noodle bowls to broth, and now, just when you thought things couldn’t get any more interesting a new Peruvian-inspired ceviche bar has opened in Woodstock! Started up by Tamryn Bruinders and Silwood-trained chef Dylan Norton, The Ceviche Bar, puts a new spin on the light and fresh seafood dish loved by many the world over.

The menu at this new spot is simple but sophisticated and will change every few months to allow diners to try a wider variety of dishes. On the menu, you’ll find everything from breakfast options, ceviche (citrus-cured fish) and nikkei tiradito (Peruvian sashimi) all made with local seasonal ingredients. The restaurant sources fish daily to ensure dishes are as fresh as possible, and it also caters for vegans and vegetarians with a number of substitutions and original dishes available.

For breakfast, choose from a lime-cured salmon dish with cucumber, capers and a poached egg; and lunch options include ceviche mango with lime-cured kingklip, mango and red chilli, or kingklip tiradito with sesame seeds, pak choi and soya sauce.

The Ceviche Bar has limited seating and a casual vibe, catering especially to on-the-go locals so don’t count on sitting down for too long in this takeaway-inspired spot. One of the best things? Every dish is served in biodegradable packaging to help the Cape Town drought – say yes to saving water!

The Ceviche Bar is located at 103 Sir Lowry Road, Woodstock and is open Monday to Friday from 09:00 to 16:30. For more information say Hi to The Ceviche Bar on Facebook.
