Dinner at Cielito

12 Apr

Two nights ago, a friend and I went to Cielito for dinner. This was my first time in the restaurant portion of the restaurant/taqueria. Our waiter was really good about checking things in the kitchen for me. We started with some special which is pictured above. We also got the ceviche peruano which I liked. It had sea bass, aji amarillo pepper, red onion, red jalapeno, cucumber, crispy choclo (like corn nuts), sweet potato and a lime-ginger sauce.

I would get this dish again. We ordered the Tamal de Requeson y Acelgas next.

These corn tamales were steamed in corn husks and served with fresh ricotta cheese, swiss chard, thick cream and a roasted tomatillo sauce. I love tamales so they were consumed quite quickly. The last item we had was basically three fish tacos. With the fresh cilantro on top, they were fresh and tasty.

After eating, we walked upstairs to check out the space they had. There was a really cool lounge feel to one of the areas. There was also a great space for a dinner with friends upstairs. Perhaps I have found my birthday dinner location!
