Welcome back to another food edition at the blog! This time I hanged out with a group of bloggers around the Gables to try the new brunch menu at Divino Ceviche. For may Miami food enthusiasts, Sunday’s ritual is to go have brunch while catching up everything it happened during the week. Brunch is a great way to catch up on the daily news while enjoying a great meal. Divino Ceviche exceeded my expectations. The chef & owner, Christian Encalada, started creating meals back in his apartment after later developing an exquisite menu for the local community at Doral. Divino Ceviche is now in Coral Gables as their second location. Read below for a preview of their brunch menu. 1. Our first plate was poached eggs with chorizo and tomatoes served in huancaina sauce (Huevos Peruanos). This was one of my favorite plates, as egg is included in my daily diet. The egg was soft with the yolk still melting. The huancaina sauce (a peruvian sauce) adds that extra flavor to the egg and chorizo. 2. The second dish is not your typical American chicken and waffles. Peruvian chicken and waffles is made of sweet potato and squash waffles with a peruvian homemade syrup called chicha morada. The chicken was breaded to add the crunchy taste, while the waffles were sweet. If you are looking for a seasonal dish for fall then this is your best option. 3. Our third plate of Peruvian style, was Pan con Butifarra. It is a freshly baked bread with slices of savory pork ham and peruvian sauce (salsa criolla). This was delicious and had the complexity of a tuna mixture. All the ingredients were mixed to perfection with the onions and greens. 4. If you are going more for a lunch option try the lomo saltado with fried eggs. This plate is irresistible, and contains Peruvian stir fry made with beef, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, soy sauce, garlic, with pisco in a wok at a very high temperature, served with potatoes and fried eggs. This is a perfect plate to share between two people.

One of the traditional drinks from Peru is the Pisco Sour. This is definitely a must try. Divino Ceviche also offers an all you can eat option with unlimited Maracuya mimosas and ceviche for only $19.99. This is the perfect spot to start your Sunday Madness. Hope you already have plans for next Sunday and tell them you want to try my recommendations.
Thanks Divino Ceviche for arranging this menu for us and thanks to South Florida Bloggers for inviting me. It was great catching up with some bloggers and sharing ideas over brunch.
