This is a post featuring the allergen menus of China Chilcano. To read my full review, click here.
As a Washington D.C.-based foodie, I am a huge fan of our hometown super chef Jose Andres. His restaurants are innovative, creative, and are consistently stellar when dealing with food allergies. With restaurants ranging from fast casual to high end, there's a Jose Andres restaurant for any budget.
Recently I decided to check out China Chilcano, Andres' restaurant that celebrates the culinary traditions of Peru through Chinese and Japanese cooking techniques. As with most of his other restaurants I have tried, when I mentioned that I had dual dietary restrictions, the staff were quick to bring out their dedicated allergen menu.
This post features snapshots of that menu, which details not only gluten-free and dairy-free friendly dishes, but also other allergens that can be removed from each dish. Vegetarians and vegans too can learn what's safe through the extensive markup of the menu.
As always, be sure to let the wait staff know every time you visit of your dietary restrictions or allergies so that they can advise you what can be made safely for your needs. Note that China Chilcano does not have a dedicated gluten-free fryer, so some items marked as gluten-free friendly may be subject to cross contamination.
