From the breast comes the milanesa, breaded chicken breast, grilled chicken breast and chicken fingers with fries.

An excellent option is to explore Peruvian gastronomy. It is acclaimed all over the world for the variety of its dishes, both in its traditional version and in fusions with other cuisines.
A clear example is how Peru opened up to Asian food, specifically Chinese and Japanese, giving rise to the emergence of two new cuisines: Nikkei and Chifa. The first, Peruvian-Japanese fusion; the second, Peruvian-Chinese fusion.
Both cuisines are present in Miami with several exponents located in the best places in the city. If you’re up for discovering Chifa food, an excellent place to try it is the Chifa Du Kang restaurant.

Chifa food is one of the best kept treasures of Peruvian gastronomy, little known outside Peru’s borders.
At the Chifa Du Kang restaurant we strive to share with the rest of the world the explosive flavours that can be found in every dish of this fusion cuisine.
Tasting a lomo saltado, chaufa rice, chijaukay chicken or wantan soup is a memorable experience thanks to the combination of flavours obtained by mixing ingredients such as ginger, soy sauce, Chinese chives, yellow chili and potatoes and cooking them in a wok with a unique seasoning.
