The first of its kind in Asia, Tono Cevicheria is a trailblazer in more ways than one. This Singapore Peruvian restaurant specialises in ceviche, a dish consisting of raw fish or seafood preserved using citrus juice and an array of herbs or spices. Lima-trained Latin American chefs create everything from fabulous cocktails to main courses including, of course, ceviche. Fresh, flavoursome and totally refreshing, this ceviche is simply out of this world. Make your way to Duo Galleria on Fraser Street near Bugis MRT station for an experience you won’t forget. As always, advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
’Tono’ – the Peruvian slang for party – sets the bar high for the riot of flavours and textures you can expect at Singapore’s first-ever authentic Peruvian cevicheria. At Tono Cevicheria on Fraser Street in Bugis, you’ll enjoy ceviche made with fish of the highest quality, served to you in a setting that makes it easy to while away the hours. Usually comprising a mix of fish – sea bass for example – marinated for hours with key lime juice, corn, and ingredients like sweet potato or garlic, ceviche has many variations depending on the region it’s from.
Founded by Peruvian Chef Daniel Chavez Of OLA Cocina Del Mar, Tono Cevicheria dishes out Peruvian delights with a large dose of fun, happiness, and big-heartedness that its natives are typically known for. Whether it’s your first time trying ceviche or if it’s already your favourite dish, we’re certain that you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the selection here. We recommend taking a tasting platter which includes three different ceviches for you to sample, or opt for one you know you’ll love, like the signature Tono ceviche made with market fish, crispy baby calamari, smoked aji amarillo and tiger’s milk. Other specialities include Tono’s lomo saltado (stir-fried beef with onions, coriander, tomatoes and crispy onions), sudado de pescado (Peruvian fisherman’s stew) and tres leches, a decadent dessert. TONO Cevicheria prides itself on fresh, carefully sourced ingredients with a focus on sustainability, especially in its seafood – a true hallmark of Peruvian culinary heritage and progress. Reserve your table ahead of time at this Bugis restaurant for a dining experience unlike any other in Singapore.
Overall it was fun but the service was a little slow. The portions were small too.
