Sashimi sliced fresh yellow fin tuna served over white rice drizzled with hot sesame oil, leche de tigre soy sauce, mangoes, and avocados
For those of you that have never had a Poke, it’s a raw fish salad. I would say the most common poke you’ll see is cubed Ahi Tuna tossed with soy, onion, sesame, and some sort of fresh pepper, and is often served with some variety of chips.
Geared to be the main course and not your typical Poke appetizer, the Peruvian Poke featured at Costa Sur is an amazing twist on your typical Poke. Made with amazingly fresh Yellow Fin Tuna, served over a ball of perfectly cooked rice, and styled and dressed to perfection, you can’t miss if you order this one!
Amazing! The tuna is perfect: firm, yet soft, and melts in your mouth. Mango, slightly unripe; rice perfectly cooked; sauce ties it all together. The creamy avocado with firm mango creates a balance of textures and flavors and set off the lightly seated tuna to perfection. Be sure to drag the pickled onions into each bite! Flavor bomb!
For being in Corpus Christi, a coastal town, it was surprising to find that most of the seafood in the area is not great. Usually it’s fried, or covered in sauces till you can’t even taste the fish. This dish really lets the tuna speak while adding beautiful accent flavors to accentuate the fish not cover it up.
It seems like Costa Sur is growing in popularity and is rapidly evolving and expanding to keep up. We have found the consistency of the dish starting to roller coaster. Yet, even with that it always stays on the tracks, and is consistently good.
If you’re in Corpus Christi and looking for amazing and creative seafood, you must stop into Costa Sur, relax on the lounge, or belly up to the bar. Order yourself an amazing beer and get started in on the fresh fish!
