“In celebration of National Pisco Day (July 24) I wanted to share the following details from José Andrés’ China Chilcano. This year, China Chilcano has partnered with top pisco producers including Macchu Pisco and Soldeica Quebranta for a special edition of “Pisco Hour.” The restaurant will offer cocktail demonstrations, complimentary pisco tastings and specialty menu items from 3-6 p.m. in the Marketplace bar.

Specialty menu items include $5 cocktails with chef-recommended small bite pairings like:

  • Chilcano & Anticucho, Pisco 100, lime, Amargo Chuncho bitters & Fever-Tree Ginger Ale, served with skewer of tender chicken, peewee potatoes  and ají amarillo
  • Pisco Sour & Ceviche Clasico Spoon, Macchu Pisco, lime, egg white, Amargo Chuncho bitters served with a spoonful of the classic Peruvian ceviche made with red snapper, leche de tigre, sweet potato, red onion, cancha and cilantro
  • Cholotini & Causa Limena, Refreshing cocktail made with Macchu Pisco, prickly pear, passion fruit, and lemon, paired with a bite of China Chilcano’s famous causa limeña
  • Capitán & Atun Picante, Sour cherry pisco cocktail made with vermouth & Amargo Chuncho bitters, served with our Peruvian spicy tuna roll
  • Five-Spice Old Fashioned & Kam Lu Wantan, Rye whiskey made savory with Chinese five spice powder and angostura bitters, served with crispy shrimp-pork dumpling, hoisin-tamarind sauce and furikake “

    One of many times the complimentary/complementary mix-up has led to disappointment…

      Glad I’m not the only one. My friends like this place, but I’ve been thoroughly disappointed with it all three times I’ve eaten there. Much of the food is simply bland.
