This Sunday, Ricardo Zarate's Mo-Chica begins an end-of-the-weekend brunch, serving both Peruvian and North American familiars, and fusing and recipes flavors together with a pronounced pinch of ajícito. Served from 10:30 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. and priced between $8.00 and $13.00 each and every Domingo, morning mash-ups include vegan empandas with eggplant, raisins, and sweet-smoky aji panca paste, plus pecan French toast served bread pudding-style with aji amarillo honey, eggs benedict with rocoto hollandaise, and the Lima breakfast staple pan con chicharron, with crispy pork shoulder crammed into a ciabatta roll with sweet potato, salsa criolla, and huancaina. Other Peruvian-pecked pleasures include a quinoa salad with rocoto vinaigrette, skirt steak anticucho with fried eggs, lomo al jugo, fresh-squeezed juice, Peruvian coffee, and of course, chicha morada. Take a look at Zarate's full Sunday brunch menu below, kicking off November 18.
