On Sunday, 8th March, three female chefs banded together to present a 6-hands menu in celebration of International Women’s Day. Held at @tonocevicheria, the dishes that Tono’s Head Chef Tamara (@tamarachavez_chef), @restaurantnouri’s Sous Chef & Head of R&D Culinary Ashlee (@ashleemalligan), and Chef-owner Petrina Loh (@pe3na) of @morselsinsingapore came up with, were every bit as spunky and vibrant as they are.

To whet appetites, it was their takes on Ceviche, a Latin American marinated raw seafood specialty first. Each imbued it with her own culinary style (this was to be repeated for their respective Tacos and Main Courses that followed). So while Chef Petrina served a distinctly Southeast Asian Ceviche with a slightly “lemak” Thai Tom Kha-dressed Hokkaido scallops, Chef Ashlee’s octopus and prawns in tamarillo broth boasted a clean and bright flavour profile, and Chef Tamara’s tortilla-scattered creation hit the highest level of intensity as she had tossed prawns, octopus, clams, crabmeat and avocado in the zingy citrus of “Tiger’s Milk”.

For the Tacos, different proteins were showcased, making things more interesting. Chefs Petrina and Ashlee decided to use Asian ingredients but their delicious results were a world apart. The former’s aromatic and rich Angus beef rump rendang with raita and pickled green mango was decidedly Southeast Asian, but the latter’s ventured further afield, into the South Americas actually as her Taco had lamb shoulder in an earthy buah keluak “mole” and finished with pickled jalapeños. Roasted chicken marinated in “Achiote” sauce, black beans and pickles were what Chef Tamara chose to fill hers with. Frankly, all three Tacos were stellar - yes, even the lamb, a meat I don’t usually order myself. I would have been very happy to continue inhaling more of them but there were the Main Courses to consider.

These too turned out to be really enticing and well executed. There was a grilled snapper by Chef Ashlee (its texture was absolutely perfect) accompanied by amazingly done purple sweet potato and polenta fritters, salsa verde and mint. Chef @johnjohn0822 from Morsels represented Chef Petrina to explain her dish, a very juicy take on “Har Jeong Gai” (the popular fried shrimp paste chicken you find at every “zi char” stall). I love how she had marinated it with Cinchalok (fermented tiny shrimp), imbuing it with funky savouriness. The final course of Arroz Con Cangrejo by Chef Tamara triggered an “OMG” moment because the spicy crab meat-laced yellow rice exploded with larger-than-life flavours.

First-ever authentic Peruvian cevicheria in SG?!?

Helmed by Peruvian Chef @chefdanielchavez, @tonocevicheria is a stone’s throw away from Bugis MRT Station at Duo Galleria, serving legit Peruvian cuisine along with a pulsating selection of signature cocktails🍸, wines🥂 and Salsa music. Specialised in ceviche, a national heritage dish of Peru🇵🇪, it’s a real pity that I didn’t order it that night😐.

👉Alfajores - SGD12
Butter cookies with dulce de leche filling, mango mousse

A perfect marriage of flavours and textures! Yummmms

I’m no expert in Peruvian cuisine but I can tell the ingredients used were really fresh and my tastebuds were tingled with bursting delightful flavours. My only gripe with them was their no-so-generous portions, especially the number of prawns🦐. Maybe 6 prawns will be perfect ☺️👍.

first time having Ceviche in Singapore and this plate packs a punch. A mindblowing mix of textures and flavours that left us completely satisfied by the time we scooped up the last onion slice.

Have you tried Peruvian food? It's certainly an experience, but aren't anything quirky or adventurous. Because I think Singapore is ready for Peruvian food, or Nikkei cuisine under the Japanese influence. After all, we can take chilli very well, and we love heat in our food, whether served warm or cold, and the strong zesty flavors works up out appetite very well. It's not easy to find a Peruvian restaurant in Singapore, but we have Tono Cevicheria, which is also the first in Asia.

Tono Cevicheria's plancha de mariscos features grilled fresh mixed seafood with vegetables "a la plancha". A la plancha is a spanish style of food preparation that combines high-temperature searing with a small amount of smoking.

Needless to say, the mixed seafood was sweet and juicy, and nicely caramelized. We loved the red quinoa huancaina sauce, a cheese based Peruvian sauce whose richness and acidity perfectly complimented the natural sweetness of the mixed seafood.

Tono Cevicheria is needless to say one of my favorite meals for 2019!

Tono Cevicheria's duck “chorrillana” was well executed.

The duck confit was shatteringly crisp and yet juicy and tender. I liked the Peruvian coriander corn cider sauce which accompanied the duck meat.

I have had a soft spot for Peruvian food since my grad trip to Peru 10 years ago. I love how they accentuate the natural flavours of their fresh seafood with strong, bold flavours.

It's hard getting Peruvian food here but Tono Cevicheria has done well to quell my appetite for Peruvian food.

I love their signature ceviche tono which features fresh market fish with crispy baby calamari, purple potato mash and smoked aji amarillo tiger's milk. The fruity and berry like flavour of the smoked aji amarillo and the citrus-based tiger milk marinade really brought out the mild, slightly sweet and nutty flavours of the fresh calamari.

This is a must-order if you ever visit Tono Cevicheria.

This was composed of prawns, calamari, fish, crab, jalapeño, lime & herbs, corn tortilla chips. The seafood was fresh and the lime & herb sauce was very refreshing, tasted very Mexican especially with the crunchy tortilla chips.

This was served wrongly to us and being the confused diners we were, we thought this was ceviche tono & wondered why the supposed crispy calamari actually tasted like tortilla chips 😂 only realised when the actual ceviche tono came, but we had already eaten half of this. They were chill about it and our waiter came by to explain why they accidentally served this to us, and told us that this would be on the house. We feel extra bad bc we really enjoyed this dish, so thank you to the team at Tono!
