Situated in the former French Concession, Chala Tapas and Bar — named after a region in Peru — serves South American cuisine and is run by the owners of Bistro Burger next door.
With modern design, Chala boasts a bar that serves a wide variety of drinks, including pisco sour — a typical cocktail to accompany South American cuisine. There’s also sangria and an extensive wine list.
The choice of tapas includes chicharron (fried pork rinds) and mixed seafood ceviche, featuring sea bass, shrimp and squid. Among main dishes are stir-fried beef tenderloin with onions, aji amarillo, spring onion, tomato, vinegar-soya glaze served with rice and French fries, as well as chicken served with green cilantro rice, peas and bell peppers, finished with onion salsa.
For dessert, try the Peruvian dessert made of cornstarch and filled with manjar blanco — condensed milk gently heated until it achieves a certain consistency — or the rice pudding flavored with cinnamon.
