The title says it all. Im going to Chifa on Thursday. What are the must try dishes and what should I avoid?

    Of all the Garces places,I'm least impressed with Chifa. Service isn't great; food is OK but not great. I guess I'd ask the waiter what's good.

      Yah, Ive never heard amazing things about chifa, but it is the one Garces place I haven't been to, so I figured I would give it a try.

        I really liked the Chifa Chicken and the pork buns when I was there, but that was a long time ago, shortly after Chifa first opened. The ceviches were OK but not as good as the ones at Distrito (at the time).

      My two favorites there are the pork bao buns and the ceviche. The duck taco is interesting as well. I never was blown away by any of the main dishes.
