Near the apartment, right next door in Miraflores District is a chinese-peruvian fusion restaurant serving the best chinese food ever. This is not the regular chinese food you are used to trying, this is a peruvianized chinese food that is very traditional here in Peru. One of the best restaurants serving this kind of food is Madam Tusan. You definately need to get: Wantan frito, arroz chaufa and Ti Pa Kay chicken (if you like sweet and salty) and Chi Hau Kai (if you like only salty) dishes. The rest is also amazing.
