Fusion Peruvian Cuisine. Critically acclaimed. Artful ambiance. These are the ingredients that create this dynamic San Francisco restaurant, Mochica. Long-time patrons consider us one of San Francisco's best kept secrets. In our cuisine you will find an unmistakable touch of Peru. In every dish the distinct flavors of regional spices come through.
I question if the reader below actually knows what Peruvian food is supposed to taste like. I think Mochica is your best option for authentic Peruvian food in SF. Frankly I'm sick and tired of all these other Peruvian restaurants that claim to be authentic and do not use the correct spices, nor do they offer an array of authentic Peruvian dishes, as Mochica does. I'm of Peruvian decent and my absolute favorite spots to eat great Peruvian food are: Mochica, Fresca's in West Portal and Noe Valley (skip the Fillmore location, it isn't that great), Limon and Macchu Pichu in San Mateo. I think the food at Mi Lindo Peru is less than superb and it definitely is not the best spot to eat Peruvian food, but it isn't terribly bad either. Let's just say I've only been there twice, while I frequent Mochica at least 3 times a month. I've gotten many friends hooked on Mochica and they keep going back for great food, original spices and great service!
Sorry excuse for a Peruvian restaurant. Food was bland, no spices. Don't bother to order the lomo saltado, or papas a la huincaina. Bland, bland, non-tasty food. For great Peruvian food, try Mi Lindo Peru in the Mission.
