Causa Acevichada Mares

Mares Real Peruvian Cuisine is so light, loud and casual that its superb food came as a surprise. The causa was a giant hit. This Peruvian mainstay begins with cold mashed potatoes laced with a cream of sweet yellow peppers. A layer of fresh avocado splits the base in half. Fresh tart ceviche is on top—your choice of traditional (fish, pictured here) or mixed, with shellfish too. Slivers of red onion add crunch, more yellow sauce brings on a silkiness, and two types of corn will keep you nibbling once the causa is eaten. The modern strip mall spot is a welcome addition to the suburban Hunters Creek neighborhood.
