I've been starving myself all day in preparation for tonight's "friends and family" preview of the new Jose Garces restaurant Chifa. Chifa will fuse Peruvian and Cantonese to bring a new flavor to the Philly restaurant scene. Think tuna tartar topped with juicy jalapenos.
If it’s even close to the quality of Jose’s other restaurants Amada, Tinto and Distrito, I may have a new favorite Philly hang out. Across the street from Jones, and sandwiched between Morimoto and the soon to open Union Trust Steak House, Chifa will help define this burgeoning restaurant area by taking up residence in the old 707 building on Chestnut and 7th. Peacock Feathers and I will both be in attendance, twittering our culinary experience for all our “friends and family”.
