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!
A classic Peruvian chifa.
