This week Jonathan Gold visits the new incarnation of Mo Chica, a Peruvian small plates restaurant in Downtown LA. Formerly the restaurant was housed in a casual food court near USC, but it closed that operation and opened a much more glamorous storefront on 7th Street near Grand Avenue. Jonathan recommends the papa a la huancaina, aji de gallina, cau cau, alpaca stew and the paiche.
