Chifa food has a lot to offer in the way of fried rice
If you are a lover of Chinese fried rice, it is urgent that you get to know one of its most particular and delicious versions: chaufa rice.
This is the Peruvian version of Chinese fried rice that unites the best of both gastronomies. In this dish you can feel the flavours that identify Peruvian cuisine, recognised as one of the best in the world; but you can also identify the culinary technique mastered by Chinese masters to cook quickly over high heat while preserving the firm texture of the ingredients, as well as the use of soy sauce and spices such as garlic and chives.
Chaufa rice is considered the jewel of Chifa food, and so far it is little known outside the borders of Peru, which has allowed only Peruvians to have the pleasure of enjoying chaufa rice.
Hence the efforts of several restaurants to make chifa food known, so that every day more and more countries have the pleasure of enjoying the flavours of this fusion cuisine.
