A little restaurant with big flavours, CEBO is tucked away on a side street close to Isartor. Serving a small selection of dishes, the cuisine is inspired by the owners’ travels to food markets around the globe – from Peru to Japan.
Changing regularly, the one word you could use to describe the dishes on the menu is fresh. Whether a fish ceviche or the latest poke bowl creation, each plate is prepared in front of you, using high quality ingredients. Order the ginger crème brûlée and you will see the sparks from the blowtorch making the final touches behind the bar.
The other connection between the dishes at CEBO is the focus on presentation. Every single dish offers a well thought through balance in terms of colour, contrast and taste.
Raw fish is used regularly, forming the base of dishes such as ceviche with sweet potato and orange tiger milk; or sashimi from hamachi (Japanese amberjack) belly. Recent non-fish highlights include chicken poke with cauliflower, cucumber and wakame (edible seaweed); and an excellent tomato soup. A real unexpected treat, however, is the appetizer you get served on arrival: slices of homemade granary bread and a bowl of excellent Greek olive oil. Although this might not sound like much at first compared to the exotic mains, you’ll be surprised. Both are so good, you have to really force yourself not to eat too much to leave room for the rest.
The venue is relaxed and friendly, with very good service. It provides a great option for lunch or dinner. We recommend sitting at the large wooden bar: from there you get the best view of the two chefs in action.
