Chifa restaurants are very popular in Peru. Chifa is the modern fusion of Chinese and Peruvian cooking.
Being Chinese food addicts we just had to try Chifa.
Of course, now well and truly enthused with Gaston Acuro’s restaurants, we chose Madam Tusan.
We were told that Tusan is the local word for a marriage between a Chinese and Peruvian couple so the name immediately intrigued.
We expected something special but were not prepared for what we saw. The décor was spectacular with an enormous dragon weaving in and out of the wall towering above diners.
We were seated in the balcony- the best seat in the house allowing us to view all the amazing dishes being served.
Menu choices were overwhelming.
So much to choose from!
Encamotao-Chicken and prawn dumplings coated in sweet potato shards and then fried, accompanied by an orange dipping sauce. Definitely my favourite of the night!
Now my challenge is to try to recreate them.
Prices were quite reasonable and the menu so unusual
I wish I had found Madam Tusan earlier in our stay.
I would have happily eaten there every night.
