After operating for about 25 years in a sleepy shopping center across from the Broward Community College Central Campus, Wings Chinese Restaurant started serving chifa, a Peruvian version of Chinese food, around 2010. The tiny dining room offers a selection of the Peruvian Chinese fare and regular American Chinese cuisine. Try the Arroz chaufa con pollo ($8), a dish that’s like the American version of chicken fried rice, but firmer and with a stronger umami flavor. It is composed of mostly rice with egg, large chunks of chicken, and some freshly chopped green onion. Tallarín saltado ($11.95) is a heaping plate of soft noodles with roasted pork, shrimp, and vegetables in a thick soy and oyster sauce. The pork is encircled by a red ring from the sweet and spicy five-spice rub; earthy notes of ginger infuse the dish. With flavorful food, large portions, and low price points, it’s worth the trek out west.
