Different versions of ceviche are part of the cusine of many Latin American countries along the Pacific Ocean coastline, such as:

  • Chile

  • Peru

  • Ecuador

  • El Salvador,

  • Guatemala

  • Colombia

  • Panama

  • Costa Rica

  • Nicaragua

  • and Mexico.

Your first experience with ceviche may have been on a trip to Mexico. However, most experts agree that ceviche originated in either Peru or Ecuador. We'll vote for Peru.

In Peru, ceviche is a widely consumed traditional food.

With the surge in popularity of "The Art of Peruvian Cuisine" on the world's elite menus, it is being considered formally as a part of the nation's cultural heritage.

Its history dates back to pre-Columbian times.

Restaurants known as cevicherias serve this dish exclusively and are usually full of hungry people.

On the other hand, even restaurants that aren't specifically "cevicherias" along the coast of Peru include ceviche as a salad or main dish on their menus. And it is delicious!
