St. Petersburg, Florida: Ceviche

After an entire day of outlet shopping in Orlando we spent our final night of the trip in St. Petersburg, about 30 minutes south-west of Tampa.  We arrived in time to have dinner and asked our hotel concierge for a local recommendation.  They suggested a restaurant located around the corner called “Ceviche“.  For a Monday night, the restaurant was so busy that we were only able to sit at the bar – a telltale sign of how good a restaurant is!  What I love about tapas restaurants is that you can try a bunch of different dishes and although so basic, the dipping oil that came with the bread was absolutely one of the best things I’ve ever eaten!  It was made from cilantro and lots of it!  It was so delicious 🙂 To be honest, every dish was good here – the tuna ceviche, deep fried eggplant and the baked goat cheese.  However, the “kicker” – if you watch triple D (Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) you know what I’m talking about, was the Tres Leches cake we ordered to end the meal.  You can’t tell in the photo but the size of the slice was enormous!  The cake was really moist, soaked in juices and topped with a thick layer of whip cream, YUM!  A perfect way to end a great week of paddling and hanging out with friends!  I can’t wait to next year!
