Great experience with food/very flavored and delicious. Good prices. Do not leave Lima-Peru without vising this Barrio and prices are good if you are in Lima y you have a budget.

We were 6 visiting after walking from the historical Lima center and the main market near by. Although not many original chinese in the area, it was quite busy. Interesting place to people watch and see the locals.

Not only can you eat well in any of the chifas around but you can also shop to your hearts content. The Barrio Chino is the original settling place of Chinese that came to Peru, so the food is out of this world. The chinese...More
