Restaurant details
Reviewed June 6, 2015

If you are staying at the Gran Hotel Bolivar (or some other hotel at/near the Plaza de San Martin), and you require Chinese food, Food Town is the closest (or one of the closest) options.

We saw the restaurant while walking the pedestrian mall where it is located, and decided to try it. The food is pretty good (not by San Fran Chinatown, perhaps). But we found the wait-staff service to be a bit lacking. Having got a plate of stir-fried veges, which came without rice, I asked for a bowl of white rice. It seemed to take longer than necessary to get that from the kitchen.

But overall the food made the stop worth it.

The Food Town lies on the busy Jiron de la Union, a level above the street. Although it's advertised as a chifa, I tried the menu del dia of traditional food. The ceviche was excellent as was the lomo saltado and for 18 soles (less than US$5) this was a bargain in a place so central. The service was attentive and the place was very clean. If there is a next time, I'll try something from the copious Chinese menu.
