Siesta Key in Sarasota is one of the most postcard perfect Florida spots there is; the crystal sand beach has been the #1 beach in the US year after year.This week we stopped into CeviChela, a new “ceviche & craft beer shack” which just opened in Siesta Village. If you’re local, taking a lunch break on the key is a quick way to make the most of being nearby, and enjoying the ocean air on CeviChela’s relaxing porch is like a mini vacation. If you’re visiting and spending time at the beach, come here for a lunch of fresh seafood you don’t need to change out of your flip flops.
When you order the Ceviche, you have a choice of Fish, Shrimp or Salmon for your protein. Next you choose your style of sauce. You can also order a bowl which comes with your choice of mixed lettuce, coconut jasmine rice, or cilantro quinoa. The coconut jasmine rice is really good!
You have your choice of Lo Mein Noodles, Coconut Jasmine Rice, Steamed White Rice, or Quinoa for your base. They have a variety of veggies to add in as well as your choice of Salmon, Skirt Steak, Chicken, or Shrimp for your protein. Finally choose your favorite style of sauce to mix in. In the video below, I (James) went for the Thai Curry Sauce and it was a great choice.
They keep a good stock of craft beer to pair with your meal.
