China meets Peru - in Brisbane

The world gets smaller every year - and our palates are increasingly exposed to different flavours and cuisines.

Casa Chow - a new bar and restaurant serving Chinese-Peruvian cuisine - is a case in point, opening its doors in Brisbane on Wednesday.

Casa Chow is the latest offering from Vincent Lombino and Jared Thibault, who operate neighbourhood Italian trattoria Sasso Italiano.

“Casa Chow brings a sense of escapism, and we can’t wait to open our doors to bring Peru’s most inspirational cuisine, chifa, to Australia," says Lombino. "We’ve poured our hearts into this place and space, to bring an energetic new dining experience to town.”

Casa Chow will bring the Chino Latino chifa dishes to Woolloongabba’s South City Square precinct.

Born from the migration of Chinese immigrants to Peru in the 19th century, chifa fuses classic Cantonese flavours with Peruvian staples.

Executive chef Gabriele Di Landri’s opening menu includes lomo saltado, a stir fry of marinated wagyu, onions, aji amarillo chilli served over fries; and anticucho-marinated skewers, alongside a mix of dim sum and ceviche.

Maybe also expect a pisco sour, or two.   

Casa Chow is set in a 100-seat, open-style bar with a DJ booth set to feature Latin rhythms. Dinner service will be available from 5-10.30pm Wednesday-Sunday.
