At La Furia Chalaca Restaurant we invite you to enjoy our incomparable cuisine, rooted in the traditions and customs of Northern Peru.
La Furia Chalaca translates loosely as The Spirit of Callao—the center for fishing, commerce and trade of Northern Peru. Years ago, political conditions in Peru forced the migration of northern fisherman to Callao. The migrating fishermen and their families quickly reestablished their traditions and the Picanterias of Callao were born.
Picanterias (family style restaurants), have earned their fame for the outstanding variety of traditional cuisine. This is reflected in our menu, which celebrates our Northern Peruvian heritage dedication to using only the freshest ingredients.
Chef Maria Fiestas born in Northern Peru hails from a respected family of fisherman. She inherited her love for cooking at an early age watching her mother and grandmother cook regionally inspired and traditional seafood dishes.
At fourteen, she learned the cooking “secrets” of “Cocina Criolla” (Creole) cooking style, influenced through generations of European migration to Peru.
Four years later she moved to Callao, and opened a “Picanteria” where she remained in business for 37 years until political struggle in Peru prompted her move to the United States where in the year 2000, La Furia Chalaca restaurant was born.
Chef Maria continues her family traditions at La Furia Chalaca and invites you to come and savor our old traditions, as we mix them with the new.
