    Order the ceviche sampler: it's four types of delicious fresh ceviche, each with its own character.

    La Mar is a big restaurant with a big menu. This is Peruvian food—a cuisine influenced by the whole world and jacked up with heat and—filtered through Chef Gaston Acurio’s European training.

    A total classic. First-timers, go samplers: ceviche sampler plus empanada sampler makes a great meal for two -- and heck, throw in a rollito, too.

    Try the "Nikei," with tuna, Japanese cucumber, daikon, nori, & tamarind, or even the "classic," which is marinated in a "tiger's milk" of ridiculously hot peppers. Read more

    Go for happy hour for half off pisco cocktails. It's a cebicheria, so duh, get the ceviche! There's a sampler platter of 4 different ceviches if you have a hard time deciding.

    Quem está acostumado com o La Mar de Sã Paulo sofre um pouquinho com a acidez do limão, no pisco e ceviches, e a ausência da pimenta cambuci e do turron de dulce de leche (imperdoável).
