If you’ve got a hankering for dinner that offers insight into your next travel destination or you are just craving something different, check out Chicha. It’s a Peruvian Restaurant on Broadway just west of Main Street.
A casual room, makes it very easy to show off your sporty summer shorts, but also enjoy dinner with friends for an evening out. My recent visit was about sharing all the dishes…luckily that’s their goal. We shared the Pan Con Chicharron – pork belly, sweet potato glazed sliders which were quite tasty; Aji de Gailina – empanadas filled with chicken stew (Peruvian style) and salsa (yummy); and Veraduras Novoandinas – which were little fritters of goodness. All dishes were tasty and pretty easy to share.
If you want a local drink, then order the Pisco Sour, otherwise have a look at the reasonable wine list with a variety of choices. We opted for a Spanish wine called Telmo Rodriguez Basa Vino Blanco 2012. It’s a blend from the region of Rueda in Spain, the grapes are Verdejo, Macabeo and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a medium body wine with medium acidity, pear, citrus and mineral notes. It was refreshing with softness, a really great find! So don’t be afraid to pair a spanish wonder with peruvian food, it works!
