China Chicano Restaurant, Washington DC.

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Capitol Engineering Group is the MEP engineer for The China Chicano in Chinatown Washington DC. Another Jose Andres restaurant "Chinese laborers, many of Cantonese descent, played a large role in influencing Peruvian cooking. The resulting hybrid cuisine is called Chifa, and variations of it pop up across the menu. More traditional Chinese dishes include a selection of dim sum dumplings and pot stickers, or hand-rolled rice noodles in an aromatic pork-and-chicken broth. A selection of chaufa—fried rice dishes—plays with a mix of flavors such as chaufa Cubana, in which the grains are sautéed with garlic, fried eggs, bacon, and tomato sauce." Washingtonian Magazine
