Nobody in the Mid-City neighborhood, not the auto-body guys, not the families, not the indigent club DJs, can resist the pull of La Cevicheria's chopped and channeled clams. What you get at La Cevicheria, of course, is ceviche, a simple shrimp ceviche, a fish or octopus ceviche, or the restaurant's take on a Peruvian ceviche, laced with the mild heat of aji and served with boiled potatoes. You can find most of the classic Mexican cocktails, the mixed-seafood vuelve a la vida that stars at most of the Eastside trucks; a serviceable campechana; and even a Veracruz-style cocktail that was new to me, emphasizing the sweetness of the shrimp more than the spiciness of the tomato-laced brew.
