Welcome to the Zafiro Hotels kitchen! Today we bring you a very special dish: chaufa fried rice. This dish has its origins in Peruvian cuisine, but with Chinese influences. In fact, the name of the dish means fried rice in Chinese.
It is a dish that combines both Asian and Peruvian influences that you can now find on the new menu in our Tastes & Sushi Bar restaurant in our Palace hotels. The Head Chef of the new 5-star Zafiro Palace Andratx Hotel, Jan Rene Brack, explains in this video the ingredients that are in the dish and how it should be prepared. We hope you like it!
