Mo Money, No Problems – The Rundown LA
A new Mo-Chica peruves its power
In the midst of graduation season, Mo-Chica is moving on to bigger and better things, too.
With a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, the public can welcome the new Mo-Chica, relocated from the Mercado La Paloma marketplace, in all its glory.
The sleek, open space has been splashed in bright red graffiti by street artist Kozem. Reclaimed wood tabletops and jars of spices prevent the party from getting too loco.
But the real glory lies in the back of the house where Food & Wine’s “Best New Chef In America” Ricardo Zarate helms the kitchen pumping out mouthwatering sangrecita with fried egg and three very unassuming words: pan con tuna.
Spicy tuna ceviche with yuzu mayo and grilled bread won’t just make you a believer, it’ll make you thirsty for a creation from the full bar headed by mixologists from Picca and Harvard & Stone.
How’s that for Pomp and Circumstance?
