Ceviche House doesn't look like a great restaurant from the outside. There are bars on the windows of the small space, and there's rarely more than one other diner in the modest dining room. But the outward appearance belies some of the best ceviche in Houston. The leche de tigre is complex with a tanginess that can only be described as electrifying, while the comforting arroz con pollo is tender and juicy. The kitchen is run by one woman whose family takes up front-of-the-house positions, sometimes grudgingly. It's a gathering place for neighborhood folks who stop by for friendly service, quality food and a flat-screen TV that's often tuned to a sports channel. If you're willing to make the drive out to Alief for Peruvian cuisine, the kind folks at Ceviche House will welcome you with open arms and awesome food.
