Open for business: Tono Cevicheria, Frunatic and Santap

Ceviche Clasico.


Make a trip to Singapore's first Peruvian cevicheria, Tono Cevicheria, for authentic Peruvian cuisine and salsa music.

This beach-decor restaurant is the brainchild of Peruvian chef Daniel Chavez, co-owner and chef of Ola Cocina Del Mar at Marina Bay Financial Centre.

The restaurant's signature dishes are its ceviches, which are made to order. They combine fresh seafood and red onions with "Leche de Tigre" (Tiger's Milk), a citrus-based marinade of limes and chillies.

One option is Ceviche Clasico ($25), a traditional ceviche that can be found in Peru.

Other items on the menu include Anticuchos ($22 for chicken, $25 for beef), which features marinated chicken or beef skewers, chalaquita sauce and panca chilli.

Where: 01-49/50 Duo Galleria, 7 Fraser Street

Open: Noon to 2.30pm and 6 to 10pm (Mondays to Fridays), 6 to 10pm (Saturdays), closed on Sundays
