While you can’t guarantee that Mondays are going to start right, you can definitely start your meals at @tonito.singapore right with this scintillating seafood ceviche ($25++). Considering that it’s built from onion salsa, tomato leche (tomato cream?), mixed seafood, and shredded tortillas covering it all, it’s technically a salad. A seafood salad, yes, but still technically a salad.

Details aside, this ceviche is a textbook example of a proper appetite whetting starter. The sour, sharp onion salsa & chunky tomato leche will send your salivary glands into overdrive, and the crunchiness will compel you to keep chomping away. The felicitously fresh & expertly cooked seafood mix of scallops, shrimps & squid provide that addictively bouncy texture and add their sweet briny flavours to the dish. The crisp tortilla strips soak up all the zesty juices of the ceviche real fast, so you’re gonna have to devour this ceviche as fast as possible.

All the seafood & vegetables are bound together by a judicious application of lime juice and chilies, which makes this ceviche irresistibly spicy & sour. Perfect for getting you all fired up for the rest of what is almost guaranteed to be a magnificent meal.

Mucho gracias for hosting me, @burpple & @tonito.singapore!
