Chifans: Peruvian Chinese Cuisine is a great place! So if you are in Miami and want to discover this exotic fusion of flavors, it is important for you to know that this is one of several places to enjoy chifa food. But before we tell you about other alternatives, we would like to explain a little about the origin of this culinary tradition.
Chifa food has its genesis in the mid-19th century, with the first Chinese migrants who arrived in Peru. As is well known, in China eating rice is an almost sacred tradition. These travelers brought this custom with them, but adapted it to the ingredients they found in their new home.
Thus, little by little, the Chinese rice made in Peru was transformed into a mixed recipe that combined both cultures. The national ingredients were united with the oriental cuisine, also taking into account a vital element which is the way of cooking: stir-fried in the wok. At the same time, other Chinese-Peruvian dishes took shape, giving birth to a whole catalog of flavors including noodles, meats, seafood and more.
Over time, chifa food became popular and spread throughout Peru due to its flavor, practicality and nutritional properties. In a short time there were chifa restaurants all over the country and in Peruvian homes they were part of the daily menu.
Say yes to this culinary proposal
Today, chifa food is part of the everyday life of Peruvians, but unlike other national dishes that have worldwide fame such as ceviche or grilled chicken, chifa recipes were kept for a long time as a national gastronomic secret, being little known outside the country. That reality is changing today.
Currently, many large cities in the world already have several chifa restaurants, and Peruvian restaurants include these dishes in their menus. Miami is no exception, and like Chifans, there are several establishments that offer Peruvian Chinese cuisine to Peruvians who want to feel at home, as well as to people from any other country who want to embark on this culinary journey.
