Paiche@Marina del Rey ★★★

Impressive Peruvian Fusion with a Blend of Japanese. Same owner as Picca and Mo-Chia. Unusual foods that tasted fantastic. Tapas style. 3-4 dishes per person recommended, one from each category. Uni dishes were excellent. Uni Shrimp Toast & Uni Risotto (with crispy surprise) are must-try. Definitely try their signature Amazonian fish Paiche, which looked and tasted like Short Rib. Aioli looked like Baked Cheese. Reminded me of Molecular Gastronomy. Lobster Fried Rice was a bit salty. Great friendly service.
