We’re keeping it fresh and flavorful for you in week three of healthy dining in the RGV. No sense in quitting now, dear readers. There are mountains of leafy greens, organic nourishment and non-processed foods to be consumed! We are women of our word and we will see this through for you. Plus, you know we’d never deprive our taste buds of the fun they’re having.
This past week, we decided to venture out to the sister restaurant of Lucky Sushi. For those of you who know the place we’re referring to, well done! Yes, fellow fans of poke bowls, creative salads and crafty ceviche, we experienced the wonderful variety of fresh and hearty servings offered at Green Ceviche, centrally located within the plaza on the corner of Trenton and McColl in Edinburg.
Trisha: How does the menu ordering work here?
Gaby: Its’ simple. Decide which size you like, whether or not you want to upgrade to “premium” protein and add on from there.
Trisha: We get to choose the size of “premium” protein we want? (lol) I’m loving this place already!
Gaby: Yeah, turns out, size and quality really does matter. (wink) Think of it like Subway, but with Ceviche!
On that note, we cheerfully placed an order for the ceviche combo that included a base of lime juice, cilantro, red onion, tomatoes, cucumber, salt and pepper, before adding a spicy kick of Mexican style (jalapeno or serrano peppers) and some green aguachile. Other preparation styles to choose from are Cocktail, Tropical, House, Peruvian, Caribeno, Asian/Poke, or Hawaiian and you can always choose between the Red Cocktail Sauce, Habanero Lime or Black Aguachile if Green Aguachile is not your thing.
Our chosen proteins consisted of shrimp, white fish, calamari and tuna. We’ll leave it up to you to guess which size we decided on. We trust that you’d be right. You know, it’s not everyday that we’re presented with such a promising option.
SIDE NOTE: You can pay an extra 75 cents per scoop if you would like Octopus in your bowl.
Of course, we didn’t stop there. The newly added Baja Style tacos/tostadas caught our eye and we opted for the grilled fish. If fish doesn’t peak your interest, there’s also an option for grilled shrimp or chicken tacos/tostadas. In addition to the shredded red cabbage and cilantro garnish, we added sliced avocado as a topping. Hella good eating!
Green Ceviche prides itself in not being just another food bar. All their food dishes are prepared with no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, sweeteners, or hydrogenated fats. It doesn’t get much cleaner than that! And just like the other healthy-forward locations we have visited in January, Green Ceviche also offers fresh-pressed juices on a daily basis.
Get your greens on and visit Green Ceviche at 4219 S. McColl Road in Edinburg, TX, on any day of the week between the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., or place your “to go” order at (956) 287-3333.
