Ceviche Week: La Superior
If you can venture out of your stilettos, head to Williamsburg by Aug. 30th for La Superior's first ever Ceviche Week.0
The only way I can’t get anxiety leaving my borough is if Mexican food is involved, and I’ll happily trek to Williamsburg for La Superior any weekday. (On the weekends, I rock 4 inches, minimum, and can’t be trekking so far in my platform stilettos.) Anyway, imagine my glee when I found out that La Superior is hosting it’s first ever “Ceviche Week.” The smog over the BK lifted, the clouds parted and the Mexican angels shook their maracas. Alleluia.
As predicted, Ceviche Week at La Superior does not disappoint. But before I get to the lime cooked fishies, let me remind the masses of one thing. The camarones tacos at La Superior are A-mazing; and even if you go for Ceviche Week, order these wrapped yumminesses. And why is the limonda so good? How do they make it such? A spin on our last reviews Battle of the Mexican Corn, La Superior’s ezquites are cups of corn kernels with a bit of cheese, lime and mayo-ey butter. I didn’t put them in the running because it really was a Nolita war, but seriously, they deserve some cred.
And the ceviche…Until August 30th, La Superior’s menu features a wide variety of most delicious ceviches. There is lobster, shrimp, whitefish, scallops, some other fish, tuna. You name it, they made it. The lobster and shrimp are delicously spiced with cilantro, limey, lemony sauce with a touch of garlic and bit of heat. After the corn and tacos, all I could fit if I’m set to rock tights and leather pants this fall. But I may swing by again this weekend for another round. That is, if I can venture out of my stilettos.
Please note: Patience is a virtue at La Superior. The laid-back hipsteresque service has been known to irritate more than one guest. But I mean, what do you expect outside of Manhattan. Oh, c’mon! I had to say it.
