About Chicha

scoutporkbelly

Chicha restaurant is a modern Peruvian inspired tapas restaurant just west of Main on Broadway in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood.  The plates bring forth interesting new flavours focusing on the use of Peruvian ingrediants, bright and eye catching presentations, and are meant to be shared amongst good friends and family.

Chicha restaurant was started and continues to be owned and operated by three friends and first time restaurant owners Allison Flook (Executive Chef), Shelome Bouvette (Executive Chef), and Kumiko Umeno (General Manager).  Shelome and Allison have a history of history repeating and have worked in kitchens together time and time again over the past years; namely Lolita’s and the Alibi Room.  Kumiko never worked with these two prior to this venture and worked in the industry for years before leaving 6 years ago to work in finance only to come back last year to open a new restaurant and adventure with her friends.

The bar manager is Paul Clark formerly with the Cascade Room.  Paul creates all the cocktails, in house infuses Pisco and in house made syrups.  The cocktail menu changes seasonally and their is a different feature every day.

The wine list is made by consultant David Stansfield and changes seasonally.  The Spring/ Summer list is due to be out soon and is expected to offer a larger offering and branching outside South American wines and including more European and BC wines,

The restaurant is open 7 nights a week for dinner and late night (full menu until close); midnight Sunday- Thursday and1am Friday and Saturday and lunch Tuesday- Friday from 11.30am-2.30pm. There is talks of brunch happening soon.
