Fodor's Review

In one corner of the Mercado Central, amid stalls selling charqui (dehydrated meat) and rainbow-colored displays of quinua, you'll find a lunchtime crowd of people lining up for cebiche frito, a locally famous fried version of cebiche where the fish is battered and topped with a spicy mayo and plated with leche de tigre and all the other usual cebiche fixings. You'll have to elbow your way to a counter seat; otherwise just take your plate and go.
