In Peru, Chicha is a kind of music or a purple corn lemonade. In Berlin, is one of the best peruvian restaurants in Europe. The newly open Chicha restaurant in Kreuzköln is already in my "faves list", not only because I can eat my favorite snack in the world, but the food and cocktails are amazing and well done.
The menu starts with different kinds of ceviche, oysters and causa, though ceviche doesn't take over it.
I ordered "Yuquitas" and Ailine got the "Chicha Ceviche" than in my opinion is the most traditional ceviche I had outside of Peru. The Yuquitas are mashed Cassava filled with cheese and deep-fried served with Hauncaina sauce.
The portions are huge in this place. So be prepared to eat a lot. Dare and try the Beef Heart or instead of wine get a pisco cocktail. The service was great and the people working there are very friendly.
Be sure to make a reservation. They were pretty full even for a Wednesday. Otherwise, you can do like we did: Sit in the bar and try some cocktails until you get a table.
