    Mistura has become one of our favorite dinner destinations in Downtown SLO! It is one of those rare restaurants that somehow manages to create meals that are visually stunning to look at, delicious to eat, and most importantly nutritious. This is not an easy trick to pull off here on the Central Coast, where sandwiches/pizza/tacos reign supreme! This particular meal was extra special because Mistura helped us celebrate my birthday with a complimentary Arroz Chaufa. We paid an up charge to add perfectly grilled, Peruvian spiced shrimp, which is definitely the best way to enjoy that particular staple dish. We paired it with the Nikkei sushi roll that we've been wanting to sample, made with Peruvian Paiche white fish and plantains. Also yum! We paired all of this with a perfectly crafted Pisco Sour (see image)! Finally, we always save room for dessert because Mistura's in-house pastry chef is second to none. This time we savored a mouse crafted to look like a rose!

    Yummy creative pizzas. Definitely worth trying both Detroit and Neopolitan-styled pizzas. Really good meal!

    One of my top dining experiences of my entire year! From the low-lit atmosphere, to the incredible menu, and perfect recommendations from our kind server. I will drive hours just to dine here again!

Discover San Luis Obispo

San Luis Obispo's city council has maintained a ban on drive-throughs for any restaurant within city limits since 1982. This helps to make the restaurant scene one that prizes fresh ingredients, classic cooking styles, and a variety of cuisines. The vegetarian and vegan restaurants are among the most popular, making the most of the area's high value for fresh produce. Most of the rest of the restaurants, which feature farm-to-table ingredients, fresh seafood, and a host of international flavors, also offer several vegetarian options. Delis and Mediterranean restaurants also feature the freshness of San Luis Obispo in unique and delicious ways.
