don't miss the real deal, upgrade to bbe vipBy Irvin LinThe restaurant Mochica may be named after an ancient pre-Incan Peruvian civilization, but there is nothing old or out-dated about the food—or the dining room—here. Tucked away on an unassuming block in SOMA, the inviting restaurant has been around since 2004 but stays current and as fresh as the fish used in their signature ceviche. Speaking of the ceviche, it's one of the reasons to come here; expect fresh fish slices in leche de tigre (“tiger’s milk”), a Peruvian term for the simple spicy juice that the fish sits in. Basic and balanced with lime, cilantro, and spices, the three ceviches range from slightly spicy to slightly kick-in-the-pants spicy, but don’t worry—the accompanying traditional slice of boiled sweet potato helps to cool your tongue afterwards. Chef and owner Carlos Altamirano moved from his native Peru to work with some of the top restaurants and chefs in San Francisco before opening Mochica. Since then, he has expanded his empire to include two other Peruvian restaurants in the city as well as a roving Peruvian food truck. But Mochica, like the civilization it is named after, came first.
