I say screw only sweet peppers! Add Cayenne pepper and possibly Dave’s or Blair’s hot sauce for the ultra hot kick! In addition to the sweet peppers and other ingredients. Add the hot sauce to the tsp of mustard to make a spicy sauce!

I want to try this in a week or 2!

They give the nutritional value but I think it’s for the whole recipe with the 12 tortillas so it is skewed! Eliminate the Tortillas and who would eat 12 tortillas in one sitting, even I wouldn’t do that on a cheat day!

I can’t wait to try this! Stay tuned!


Restaurant Review: Cevich – Union Square NYC

IMG_9770.JPG
Cevich brings a brand new healthy food option to Union Square as New York City’s first grab-n-go Ceviche restaurant. This small but modern and relaxing restaurant offers a variety of dishes that blend traditional Peruvian recipes along with other culinary influences. Cevich’s dishes are fresh, affordable, customizable and gluten-free. Located in one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods, Cevich is close to famous attractions such as the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park, as well as many boutique and name brand shops. Under the direction of co-owners and operators Reina Laws and Lindsay Goldstein, Cevich will become a trusted brand of the Ceviche product in a rapidly growing food market.

Cevich offers a variety of dishes inspired by the ancient South American cuisine in which fresh fish and seafood is “cold cooked” in a marinade of citrus juices, spices and other ingredients such as chilies, red onions and cilantro. The origins can be traced to the coastal regions of South America and is believed to have been created after Spanish settlers brought citrus trees to the region and Japanese immigrants their new culinary techniques and flavors. Executive Chef Evelyn Alberto executes the menu with sauces made in house daily with local, fresh ingredients. Menu items range from ceviche burritos and tacos to 12 or 16 oz. ceviche bowls and entrée salads.

I got the Ceviche bowl with coconut rice, lime n da coconut (hold the red onion) and shrimp with avocado (not worth the $2 extra couldn’t even find the microscopic pieces) and Rocoto Sofrito hot sauce (that was amazing)

I loved it all except the price welcome to NYC! The food was fresh and light! If you order it with greens it’s perfect for gluten free and low carb diets!

Check this place out for something out of the ordinary and delicious!

I got the tuna tartare and my girlfriend got the lobster roll. The tuna was great! Extremely fresh and tasted amazing! The Asian slaw underneath accented the tuna nicely and balanced the flavors! The lobster roll however was watery and had zero taste because of it! I believe in was a cooking error! I believe they boiled the lobster and didn’t steam it. When they boiled the lobster they didn’t allow it to drain before adding the mayo and other ingredients thus causing the lobster salad to be watery and lacking all flavor. Proper ingredients as it was busting with fresh lobster chunks, but poor execution made for a bad lunch on her part and her fathers (he ordered the same) I’m glad the tuna was amazing as poor raw tuna could have been a nightmare!

Check out this place! The surrounding meals looked great, mine tasted great and the atmosphere is serene as the restaurant sits perched above lake hopatcong giving you a nice view with a nice breeze off the lake!

The parking sucks! So if you have a smaller car and a larger one, take the smaller one lol!
