|Yuquitas rellenas (yuca fritters with dried potato, yellow pepper, and wood ear mushroom)|
|Jiaozi de la chacra (dumplings stuffed with yellow potato, rocoto pepper, yellow squash, cilantro, and black vinegar-yellow pepper sauce)|
|Ajonjoli (cold wheat noodles with sesame seed sauce, carrot, cucumber, creole sauce, peanut, and star anise)|
|Tallarin zhen fe (Hong-Kong style rice flour noodles with cilantro, tomato stew, black garlic, egg, and five spice)|
The food is light but very satisfying with many complex flavors. I cannot wait to return for dinner next month to try the rest!
UPDATE: I returned to China Chilcano for dinner in April 2015 and had an equally pleasant dining experience. I also was excited to learn that the restaurant now offers a separate "makeshift" vegetarian menu (the regular menu with vegetarian options highlighted) as well as separate gluten-free and food allergy menus.
