$20 for $40 Worth of Peruvian Cuisine
The menu features a Peruvian sweet green pepper stuffed with chicken and cheese ($8), mixed seafood ceviche ($17), and grilled baby octopus marinated in lime juice ($14).
Though Carlos Altamirano has studied under a number of internationally renowned San Francisco chefs, his first culinary teacher was his mother. He grew up amid the lush mountains and fruitful oceans of southern Peru, helping his mother as she sliced fresh fish, cilantro, and limes for ceviche. Today, Carlos infuses his mother's traditional recipes with contemporary flourishes to craft Mochica's menu of innovative Peruvian fusion.
Deep in its kitchen, Carlos and his chefs fold imported Peruvian ingredients into the seafood ceviche lauded by Bill Addison of the San Francisco Chronicle as "among the most astutely prepared in the city." Pots of seafood paella simmer on stoves, as chefs braise chicken breast in flavorful sauces and melt cheeses with but one gentle note from a wooden Peruvian flute. Out in the dining room, guests nibble on crunchy chickpeas and corn kernels while sipping on fine wines and fruity sangria. Sunlight streams in through tall windows, illuminating deep-crimson walls speckled with an eclectic collection of vibrant, modern artwork.

“Lovely food, great ambience if not a little hard to hear each other but I think my friends talk quietly, I have a bit of DJ ear from being a former DJ (can't hear as well as some) and there was a fair bit of background noise from the music that I actually liked and recognized playing in the background. Service was very attentive and responsive to our needs. All in all, a great experience. $53 per person for five of us with two bottles of very tasty wine and lots of dishes to sample what was available on the menu.”
