Casa Chow

Casa Chow exploded onto Brisbane’s dining scene in July 2022, making a great first impression with its luminous LED-lit interior and menu of Chinese-Peruvian fare. The cuisine, better known as chifa, harmonises Cantonese and Latin flavours in a punchy manner, and Casa Chow’s share-style menu showcases the best of what chifa has to offer. Menu highlights include kingfish ceviche served on crispy wontons, anticuchos de corazon (Peruvian-style skewers) with aji panca molido, chicharron de pescado (crunchy fish fritters) bao buns with aji amarillo mayo, chaufa prawn and pork fried rice, lomo saltado (a marinated stir fry served with chips and rice), and guava cheese cake with salt and lime. A cocktail list includes six classics, ten signatures that incorporate Asian fruits like mangosteen and rambutan, and five pisco sours, all available alongside wine from small South American producers and a chicha-inspired rice lager made by Aether Brewing using purple corn. The semi-open 100-seater space boasts and aesthetic that brings together vintage and modern aspects. Casa Chow’s curved bar serves as the nexus that the venue operates around, with guests free to nab a seat on the alfresco patio, on a street-facing window stool, at a table in the thick of the action on the main floor, or a curtained booth nestled on the fringe.
