China Chilcano & City Center

By the month of April, Virginia is already experiencing weather in the 70s. Surprisingly, we had a mix of snow and rain on Saturday. I decided to take advantage of the not so pleasant weather and cleaned up my room and closet. It was much needed. Thankfully, Sunday was a better day. It was still a bit chilly outside but that didn't stop my boyfriend and I from going to the Wizards vs Hornets game. We love our basketball. Just in case you were wondering, the Wizards won 113 to 98. We left the game with big smiles on our face.

After the game we headed over to China Chilcano for an early dinner. The restaurant is owned by Chef Jose Andres. The flavors in the dishes are delicious. It is a  Peruvian restaurant with a mix of Peruvian Criollo, Chinese Chaifa, and Japanese Nikkei. I love the interior design at China Chilcano! If you know me, I always pay attention to the detail and decoration.

Now, lets talk about the drinks and food. We ordered the Cholotini and Pisco Sour. Both drinks were great. We decided to order the Atun Picante (spicy tuna, cucumber, avocado, cilantro, aji limo, puffed quinoa) for our appetizer. There were so many flavors but it all went together perfectly. Lastly, we ordered the Lomo Saltado (hanger steak, tomato, soy sauce, shishito pepper, shoestring potato, rice.) If you're up for exploring new flavors that taste delicious definitely check out China Chilcano.

We ended our adventure in City Center. Every time I go, I notice new restaurants and stores opening. At the same time, my list of restaurants I want to try gets longer. Can't complain about that. :) They have super cute decorations for the Cherry Blossom season. Enjoy the pictures!
