    [dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]ucked behind a gas station and across the street from another gas station on the northern edge of West Covina is Misky Misky, Julio and Cecilia Tawata’s Peruvian restaurant. You won’t be wrong to want the anticuchos (skewered beef hearts) that are grilled and served with a flourish of microgreens, or the upgraded version of lomo saltado where bits of filet mignon are wok-fried with tomatoes, onions, French fries, and a bright aji amarillo sauce. But where Misky Misky really shines is in its ceviches, which are easily some of the best and freshest in town. There are half a dozen to a dozen on the menu at any given time, with the mixto — ceviche with the fish of the day, shrimp, mussels, and squid — probably the best choice for the indecisive. It may be too early to call it, but a few years from now, we may very well see Misky Misky as one of a handful of restaurants redefining modern Peruvian cooking in Southern California.
