Looking for CHIFA in DC.

Ive been to Kampo in Va. and thought it was one of the WORST meals I have ever had. It was about a year ago, so if its changed a lot I might consider going back. But Im hoping there is somewhere within an hour of DC with good, real, chifa.

Kampo Restaurant
5884 Leesburg Pike Ste D, Falls Church, VA 22041

  1. Kam Po is the only Peruvian-Chinese restaurant I know of in the area. I have yet tor try it. Where have you had it and what are some typical dishes you are looking for?

      Kam Po is the place I mentioned above. I thought it was terrible, and thats an understatement. The food was awful and the place is just plain dirty. As for typical dishes, I've only had it a few times, and that was mostly in Peru but here are a few, mind you not to be confused with our traditional expectation of Chinese food, but in Chifa style :
      Chaufa Rice (Fried Rice)
      Fried Noodles
      Fried Soy
      Wantan Soup
      Kam Lu Wantan
      Chijaukai chicken
      Tipa Kay Chicken
