Where the Caribbean meets South America
Pica Pica tastes different than most Latin American foods. Our vibrant, bold flavors come from a blend of Caribbean and South American ingredients that we slow-cook to bring out layers of sweet, savory and spicy flavors.
Family recipes made from scratch
Some of our dishes have more than 60 ingredients and take up to 48 hours to prepare. Everything is made from scratch using fresh ingredients – the way our family has cooked for generations.
Well seasoned, sometimes hot!
Corn, coconut, mango, plantains, passion fruit
Cumin, bay leaves, lime & orange juice, smoky sweet peppers
Cilantro, garlic, mustard seeds, hot peppers.
Comfort from our family’s kitchen
Pica Pica started with a desire to introduce our Venezuelan heritage to our family in the San Francisco Bay Area. For us, food is comfort. It brings us together and tells the story of our lives. So we decided to share generations of family recipes, cooked in kitchens across Venezuela. Pica Pica originates from these moments of shared culinary traditions.
We’re excited to invite you to our table, and our kitchen, to experience the spontaneous, cheeky, playfully mischievous Venezuelan culture through our fresh take on classic dishes.

We take our commitment to serving a 100% Gluten Free menu very seriously. To that end, we periodically test our recipes at Bia Diagnostica Labs and NIMA. The test results from 2015 and 2019 are available for review.
