Along with dim sum parlor Salon Capon around the corner, Wa Lok is one of the oldest and most famous chifas (Chinese-Peruvian restaurants) near Calle Capón, the center of Lima's Barrio China, or Chinatown. Tile floors and clunky wood tables make up the décor. The colossal menu—more than 100 dishes strong—ranges from simple Cantonese favorites like pork dumplings and fried rice to dim sum to more elaborate fare like Peking duck. There's a louder second location in Miraflores at Avenida Angamos Oeste 700, attached to a casino.
