This lovely cevicheria, right in the midst of the Bugis area, serves playfully innovative and refreshingly fresh flavours. The tono ceviche here comprises fresh market fish marinated in smoked aji amarillo and tiger’s milk, topped with crispy baby calamari. The combination is visually scrumptious, perfectly balanced in flavour and contrasts, with many entertaining textures on one plate. Another successful and delicious play of flavours is served up with the anticucho pulpo, where tender grilled Spanish octopus on skewers is served with olive chimichurri and a soft, rich bean purée. Another highlight, the causa Lima sees crispy and well-seasoned softshell crab served with potato and yellow chili salad, tartar sauce and creamy avocado. For a main course that’s more substantial, the arroz con pato really hits the hungry spot. An exquisitely tender duck leg confit is served atop comfortingly fragrant coriander and dark beer rice. This little restaurant is one you’ll want to come back to again and again.
The restaurant is notoriously packed on weekends, so a reservation is a must. Also, watch for Tono’s many innovative seasonal promotions by getting on its mailing list.
