Downtown: CVI.CHE 105, authentic Peruvian cuisine

The brainchild of Juan Chipoco, CVI.CHE 105 is inspired by the tasty aromas of his mother and grandmother's culinary creations, simple, homemade traditional Peruvian food made with love. After a brief culinary tour in Peru, Juan returned to Miami and along with friend & partner Luis Hoyos set about the ambitious goal of transforming La Cibeles, a small Cuban restaurant in Downtown Miami into CVI.CHE 105. Opened in 2010, CVI.CHE 105 opened to critical praise and continues to serve up a wide array of ceviches and tiraditos in it's cool and always lively dining room.

While the origins of ceviche remain a fiercely debated topic it is most widely believed to have originated in Peru. Ceviches are made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and spiced with ají or chili peppers.
