Back From Peru a Week Ago - Already been to MO CHICA three times

Imho this guy - Ricardo- is world class. Get there soon before you can't get in or someone bankrolls Ricardo and he opens on the westside (please someone- do it) Went to a tasting menu last Thurs, and meant to post it before hand- sorry. Six dishes, all delivered, how often does that happen? Had been to Gaston's new restaurant in Cuzco the week before and as far as i was concerned Mo Chica was better. Ricardo says Gaston wanted him to run his place in San Francisco.

the tasting menu:
Causa: red beets, blue fin tuna, avocado
Ceviche: cucumber, mentaiko, yuyo, sea bass
Cau Cau: Kamasu, chickpea, panamitoo, oyster-mushrooms
Chanfainit: oxtail, maiz mote, confit, potatoes, pickled carrots
Suspiro ala Limena: yuzo, merengue, custard

previously had:
lomo saltado
quinoa risotto with wild mushrooms

all excellent

very casual, in an enclosed food mall / market just across the fwy from usc. secure parking

bon appetit
