Mo-Chica Peruvian Restaurant ~ My short review and photos

After reading many reviews about Mo-Chica, I couldn't wait any longer and today, Monday, June 29th we drove to Los Angeles just to have dinner there. I am really glad we did, everything was absolutely delicious. The presentation of the food, the flavors, the quality of the ingredients, and the nice and friendly server and cooks just couldn't be any better.
In my opinion the prices are very reasonable.
I also recommend Mo-Chica.

      I would be stunned if they did. PETA would be all over that. But I'd love to try it some time.

        I didn't see it on the menu, and I really don't think they do.

            Yea that fish and pork is ok, but lay a hand on a cuy... odd isn't it? I would eat a long pig if I were able to, lol.

          The Lomo Soltado looked awesome too bad I am not a CA resident anymore. The midwest is barren of Peruvian food.
