Beach to Beach
Mancora Ceviche Bar, 234 Almond Ave., 954.769.1638, mancoracevichebar.com
This ceviche restaurant brings fresh Peruvian cuisine straight from Mancora, Peru to Fort Lauderdale Beach. There are few better ways to finish off a day on the water than with flavorful seafood and refreshing pisco cocktails. Try the Pescado a la Chorrillana (fried fillet of corvina topped with sauteed onions, cilantro and tomatoes, served with white rice) paired with a Beso de Lucuma (Pisco 1615, lucuma, amaretto and cream).
