à propos

Restaurant museum, which offers a global discovery of the Peruvian culture.

Located in Toronto’s Little Italy, Mochica restaurant showcases the richness and diversity of Peruvian cuisine from aboriginal specialities to contemporary Peruvian fusion delicacies.

Five sorts of ceviche including pre- and post-Columbian versions as well as a vegan quinoa ceviche detail the culinary history of Peru. Cordon Bleu Chef Martin Oré draws particular inspiration from his ancestral aboriginal Mochica culture. Whether the alpaca burger and cassava fries or the fresh fish and warming meat stews, each dish is infused with the aromas and flavours of ancient and modern Peru.

Cocktails from specially imported Peruvian spirits and wines selected by sommelier and co-owner Claude Pétrin compliment the cuisine.

Mochica restaurant in Toronto is the Oré-Pétrin team’s second restaurant in Canada. Mochica on St. Denis Blvd opened 12 years ago to rave reviews, and the Mochican Palace Hotel and Restaurant in Peru opened in 2013.

Martin Ore

Owner & Chef

Drawing on his knowledge of family recipes and the rich culinary history of his native Peru, Cordon Bleu Chef Martin Oré combines fresh Ontario ingredients with authentic Peruvian ones which he imports through a separate business that also imports Peruvian spirits. Twelve years ago he opened his Montreal restaurant on the city’s fashionable St. Denis Blvd and ever since he has been receiving accolades for his cooking from Quebec media. An ambassador for Peruvian cuisine, Oré makes frequent television appearances and has served as chief of gastronomy for Peruvian exhibits at the Musée des Beaux Arts. He has also developed menus for UNESCO’s Year of Quinoa under the direction of former first lady of Peru, Nadine Heredia.

In 2013, Oré opened the Mochican Palace Hotel with its accompanying restaurant, in northern Peru. He likes to decorate his places with reproductions of artifacts from the Mochican culture.

Twelve years after opening his first Canadian restaurant, the chef and his business parter and sommelier Claude Pétrin, have their sights set on Toronto, bringing their brand of the ancient-modern cuisine of Peru to the city.
