Fodor's Expert Review El Mochica

$$ Trujillo Peruvian

Half a century's worth of tradition has gone into this Trujillo standby. Bustling at lunch- and dinnertime, it's a fun place to eat that specializes in regional cuisine—and does it well. Start with an industrial-size portion of spicy cebiche de lenguado (sole marinated in citrus), followed by rice smothered with camarones (shrimp) or mariscos (shellfish). There are additional locations near the Huacas del Sol y de la Luna in the village of Moche, as well as in Huanchaco.
