Peru’s most famous chef, Gastón Acurio owns this wildly experimental place where the menu never veers far from Peru’s Inca-Spanish roots. River prawns are a highlight in season (April to December), but Acurio prepares Peruvian staples with equal panache, along with tender alpaca burgers and earthy pastas.

Try the tacu-tacu (a Peruvian fusion dish of rice, beans and a protein), lomo saltado (strips of beef stir-fried with onions, tomatoes, potatoes and chili), or ceviche. Like many ‘celeb’ places, Chicha divides opinion between food snobs and purists. Step inside its fine colonial interior and join the debate.
