Though it’s located in a generic food court, chef Ricardo Zarate’s Japanese-inflected Peruvian spot Mo-Chica is a favorite with L.A. foodies for its vivid, punchy flavors (lots of tartness, lots of heat), sophisticated presentation, and rock-bottom prices (dishes top out at $16). The Lima native has spent time cooking in top sushi spots, like Zuma in London. His expertise with raw fish is apparent in his fantastic ceviche that includes halibut, prawns, scallops, and squid.
