Misky Misky ("yum, yum") first debuted at the LA Street Food Festival last July by serving bincho-grilled beef heart as well as chicha morada. It promptly won the "Wild Card" award at the event. The restaurant gently grand opened July 19, and so far features eight ceviches.
Peruvian Restaurateurs Julio and Cecilia Tawata, the team also behind the wildly popular Mr. Pollo, wanted to share the taste of the food they grew up with. Here, they are serving South American wine that will accompany a growing menu currently featuring cau cau de mariscos, aguadito de mariscos, filet mignon lomo saltado, chupe de camarones, etc., in addition to the ceviches.
The setup of the restaurant is unique, and features a genuine ceviche bar where diners can simply hop on, observe the raw action, then fork chorros ala chalaca into their mouths. There will be a rotating "spotlight" ceviche as well.
