Mar Picante information
If you come to Trujillo without sampling this bamboo-lined seafood palace’s ceviche mixto ordered with a side of something spicy, you haven’t lived life on the edge. You’ll get raw shrimp, fish, crab, scallops and onions, marinated as usual in lime juice, piled on top of yucca and sweet potato with a side of toasted corn (chancha) and corn on the cob, along with a shot of rocoto -fired juice that will jolt your taste buds into submission when you pour it on. This is the North Coast’s best! Service is swift and friendly as well, no small feat considering it’s always packed. Take a taxi (S3.50) or leg it southwest on Larco from the center. Húsares de Junín splits off to the southeast 200m south of España.
