Javiar’s - Newport Beach
Ceviche de Camaron
The shrimp is marinated perfectly in lime, it is very tender with cucumber, calantro,and red onion
It is very mild with no taste of the shrimp.
Ceviche de Pulpo
The octopus is very tender with very mild and meaty, the addition of avocado brings a great creamy note.
Ceviche de Ahi
The ahi is sushi grade with a very fish forward flavor, the addition of a ponzu brings a Asian influence along with the black and white sesame. They do add Persian cucumber.
The shrimp taco is ok, the shrimp is breaded and the tortilla is very bland and tastes store bought.
A big disappointment
The enchilada is filled with lobster and is cooked to perfection. The tortilla is is very soft and the Padilla sauce works with it perfectly.
The grilled chile relleno has a perfect charr on the out to bring out a earthy note. I noticed when eating some of the shrimp where undercooked or raw. The crab brings a great flavor creamy and briny addition.
If you love chocolate then this is the cake for you,
this rich cake is like eating pure chocolate ganache with more on top then more around.
It is very rich and thick with not really much flavor to this and is a big disappointment for the look and style.
