Peru’s most famous chef, Gastón Acurio owns this wildly experimental place whose menu never veers too far from Peru’s Inca-Spanish roots. River prawns are a highlight in season (April to December), but Acurio prepares the Peruvian staples – tacu tacu , lomo saltado , ceviche – with equal panache, along with tender alpaca burgers and pastas earthy enough to placate even the most fastidious Italian. Like many ‘celeb’ places, Chicha divides opinion between food snobs and purists. Step inside its fine colonial interior and join the debate.
