Latin Bites

Latin Bites
Contemporary Cuisine
Latin Bites used to be a hole in the wall in the Downtown area, but their incredible food and loyal customers led them to move to a bigger location in the Woodway area. If you are craving Peruvian food, or actually good food in general, this place is a must. Their dishes are consistently good and their fish is always fresh. Since opening this new location, the menu has changed several times and unfortunately the portions have been reduced considerably.
With that being said, we continue to dine at this restaurant because of the quality of the food. They have a pretty decent variety of ceviche and tiraditos (raw fish dishes).
Young professionals like to dine here, and it is also a great option if you want to eat with a larger group. 
In terms of service, it is pretty average nothing spectacular but nothing terrible either. 
We highly recommend this location.

Market Cebiche
white seasonal fish, octopus, crispy calamari, creamy aji rocoto leche de tigre, sweet potato puree, fried yuca, cilantro & choclo
This classical Peruvian dish, served with a special twist, is absolutely delicious. This ceviche dish is prepared with a non traditional citrus sauce and is topped with perfectly fried calamari. The freshness of the fish, as well as the crunch of each perfectly cooked calamari, is felt in every bite.

Most, if not all, of the ceviches served are spicy. If you are like some of our friends who dislike that spicy kick, make sure to let your waiter know because he/she will be more than happy to address this with the chef who will then prepare a non-spicy version of the dish for you. 
Dish: 5/5

Lomo Saltado
beef tenderloin, onions, tomatoes, red wine, oyster sauce, home fries & white rice.
Debatably the best dish offered at Latin Bites! The beef is simply perfection. You will
not have to worry whether it is undercooked or overcooked because it is cooked perfectly.
This dish used to be served as the traditional Peruvian Lomo Saltado but has recently been modified with the addition of new vegetables. We are definitely a fan of the changes even though they are not part of the traditional recipe. Another aspect that has changed about this dish is how it is served. It used to come in a standard plate, and now it comes in a bowl making it a bit uncomfortable to eat and enjoy. 
Dish: 4.7/5
