About Mochica 
Chef Altamirano opened Mochica in January 2004 and immediately became a sensation with critics and loyal clientele alike. Since that time, crowds have not only flocked to this charming Peruvian eatery in its South-of-Market locale, but have also been smitten by Altamirano’s masterful, beautiful interpretation of Peruvian fusion cuisine. Infused with an overt sense of love and respect for great food, Mochica dishes such as Lomo Saltado, Anticuchos de Pollo, Aji de Gallina and Fried Plantains are presented as proverbial masterpieces at tableside, ensuring your Mochica experience will be a unique one.

From a mouth-watering and much talked-about Sangria to Ceviche, classic Paella perfectly cooked with outstanding seafood flavor and Pulpito a la Parilla – baby octopus – there’s something to satisfy every epicurean fantasy here at Mochica. And the ambiance? If you’re looking for the ultimate laid-back yet romantic-esque vibe in a San Francisco restaurant – one that can act as the perfect backdrop for a date or a more casual one-on-one meeting – look no further.

Join us at our trendy, modern and stylish Peruvian eatery in the midst of one of this city’s most chic districts. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
