Fayslin Chifa in Barranco, Lima, Perú

Soup for starters.

Right across the street from our bed and breakfast in Barranco we found this amazing chifa/traditional Peruvian place.  They serve good soup and daily lunch set-lunch specials for a good price.

Ají de gallina

We tried a few of their main courses and all were tasty and filling.  Carrie especially like the “aji de gallina”, sliced potatoes, shredded chicken, and onions in the deliciously-cheesy “huacaina” sauce (I found a recipe here and will definitely be trying to replicate it back the US).  They have an enormous menu, offering both typical Peruvian almuerzo combinations and a huge selection of Chinese options, all of which come with wonton soup.

Macarrones=basically pasta bolognese

Here’s their menu!
