Tanta and loves to teach the world about the cuisine of Peru. I have been to Tanta before and really enjoyed it. I decided to return for brunch before I make an upcoming trip to Peru and use it as sort of preview. The restaurant is sort of linear with a long bar running into the restaurant with a ceviche bar at the end of it. There is a two-sided banquette in the center of the restaurant with booth seating on the right side of the restaurant. The wall behind the bar is a chalkboard with the recipe for a Pisco Sour, the national drink of Peru written large on it. On the opposite wall is a series of very colorful paintings typifying the art and food of Peru. Other than the paintings and the chalkboard, the general color scheme of the dining room is brown and the lighting is hung in a wooden ovoid cage. We were seated at the banquette and started our brunch with a Leche de Tigre Ceviche. (The picture above is not a picture that I shot or, I think, from Tanta Chicago. I posted it to give people an example of what a Leche de Tigre Ceviche looks like.) Ceviche is a preparation of raw fish,seafood, onions, and spices that is "cooked" (tenderized, actually) with lime juice. I like ceviche and I have had Leche de Tigre (Tiger's Milk) Ceviche before although not at Tanta, so I wasn't exactly sure what I would be getting. We received a glass of milky white liquid filled with seafood and onions and corn, which actually, we kind of ate wrong. It is supposed to be eaten like a shooter, pouring everything down at one. As it was, we kind of took things apart and were left with the marinade which I then shot. The ceviche had Cubed Fish, Red Onions, Peruvian Corn, Habanero Pepper, and a lot of liquid. Even though we did eat it wrong, there was still a lot of marinade on the fish, corn, and onions, which provided an intensely sour flavor and tender fish. I drank the marinade on it's own and I could see why that people would think that it provided prowess and energy, because drinking that much lime juice at once definitely woke me up and cleansed my palate.
