El Chalan Restaurant Washington DC
El Chalan Restaurant Washington DC Surprisingly nice place below street level. Doesn’t look like much from the outside, but cozy and well decorated inside. Helpful staff that was accommodating to split our check. We enjoyed a good ceviche mixto. I had the cabrito nortena. The flavors were spot on but the meat was dry. Next time I’ll explore other dishes.

So glad to have found El Chalan while here in DC on vacation. My family and I lived in Piura, Peru for almost 9 years which is in the heart of Peruvian creole food. We LOVE Peruvian food and this is as authentic as you can get. I even told my wife that the sala made me feel like we were transported back to Peru. We ate here twice. The ceviche, papa a la huancaina , cabrito norteño, arroz con mariscos, chupe de camarones, anticuchos and lomo saltado we’re excellence!!! I would absolutely recommend El Chalan!!!
Visiting DC on a two day trip, we narrowed out food selection to a few places close to our hotel and review ratings. However, El Chalan was recommended by family. We were extremely satisfied with our experience, especially the level of service we received. Our waiter was accommodating with his explanation of the food choices, made recommendations and the food was excellent. We came in early at lunch and the place was empty, but 30 minutes later and you could no longer find an empty table, we highly recommend you come early.
I’m peruvian and I’m always happy when something is authentic. This is the place! They also serve traditional foods you won’t find in other peruvian places. The desserts were also amazing as well. I’m from NYC and DC has us beat when it comes peruvian food. My city has to step up their game
