Machu Chifa Plans to Open in Downtown Boston

A new restaurant that features a type of fusion cuisine not easily found in the Greater Boston area is on its way to the heart of the city.

According to a source (Sarah Wu), Machu Chifa is opening in downtown Boston, with the Court Street eatery being a fast-casual restaurant that focuses on chifa, and in particular, Cantonese-Peruvian style fried rice bowls that can be ordered with steak, pork, shrimp, or chicken, based on information from a web page for the place. It is not known when the new restaurant might open, though it appears that it may be either on the verge of opening or already open; we have reached out to the spot and will post an update as soon as we find out more.

Currently, chifa--which includes a number of dishes with Chinese and Peruvian influences in addition to fried rice--can only be found at a few Boston-area restaurants, including Ruka in downtown Boston and Celeste in Somerville's Union Square.

The address for Machu Chifa is 55 Court Street, Boston, MA, 02203. Its Instagram page can be found at while its web page is at
