LAReview

Chifa is a Cantonese-Peruvian restaurant in Eagle Rock and the kind of place that, in the midst of our 100th lockdown, is a much-needed breath of fresh air. The menu is inspired by the owner’s original Chifa restaurant in Lima, Peru, and features dishes like pollo ala brasa, mapo tofu, and traditional zongzi, sticky rice wrapped in banana leaf and filled with Chinese sausage, pork belly, and mushroom. We particularly love the spicy beef noodle soup and si yao chicken, but whatever you do, make sure you save room for a few black sesame cheesecake tarts at the end - they’re excellent.
