A diminutive cevichería, Hijo de Olaya takes its name from its more upmarket, parent establishment in Buenos Aires, Argentina. That’s where chef-owner José Castro Mendivil cut his teeth, bringing Peru’s flavors to an Argentine audience. This bar, Mendivil's first foray on home turf, is a cozy hole-in-the-wall serving up one daily ceviche as well as an array of butifarra sandwiches and rice loaded with seafood. This is a great pit stop where you can fill up for only a few dollars.
