Chifa in Central fuses Chinese and Peruvian cuisines with excellent results. Set in the heart of Hong Kong on Peel Street, Chifa offers a take on Asian-fusion you’ve likely not encountered before. The skilled team at this incredible spot pay homage to Peru’s long history of Chinese migration through a creative and inventive food offering. We’re talking soft, fluffy bao and perfectly wrapped dumplings served alongside traditional seafood, rice, noodles and meat dishes. This relaxed eatery allows you to let your hair down and enjoy a tasty cocktail (we love the Paloma with tequila, agave syrup, lime juice and grapefruit soda) while grazing on numerous small plates with friends, family or co-workers. As you can probably tell from all of the above, advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
A meal at Chifa on Peel Street in Central is one you will remember for a long time to come. Honouring both Peruvian and Chinese cuisines for their cross-cultural history results in a spectacular Asian fusion experience that tastes quite unlike any other one on offer in Hong Kong right now. One of our favourite things to do at Chifa in Central is to dine out with a group of our nearest and dearest who love sharing food as much as we do. That way we can take our pick from as many items on the extensive Peruvian and Chinese menu as possible.
But let’s delve a little deeper into the Asian fusion food offering, shall we? Chifa Hong Kong’s menu is bursting with so many options that even the fussiest of eaters will be sure to find something that appeals to them. Kick things off with some small plates such as fried chicken in a five spice batter with shaoxing wine and aioli verde; tuna tiradito with yellow chilli, cucumber rolls and octopus chalaca and the silken tofu with avocado furikake and crumbed peanuts. After that, why not take your pick from eleven different kinds of delicious dumplings for the table to share? For the main event at Chifa you have to make the tough decision between seafood, noodles, rice dishes and bao – and trust us, it won’t be easy!
Always a good feed at Chifa, quickly turning into my favourite spot in Hong Kong
Staff were very friendly and helpful, we had the tasting menu for $320 each where the staff just choose the dishes, but you could tell them what you fancied, the food was generally very good and different.
I love this place, food is great every time and service to match
