Love the lomo saltado and a few of the appetizers!
Abigail T. · May 6, 2016
Lots of good choices on this menu. Carne asada (steak) is tender and well-seasoned. Arepas are great appetizers. Hard to go wrong here.

What You'll Get

There are many activities that should not be performed on an empty stomach, including swimming, surgery, and swimming 30 minutes after having your appendix removed. Acquire activity fuel with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of authentic Latin American cuisine at Don Churro Café in Chantilly.

Named one of the region’s Best New Restaurants by Northern Virginia Magazine, Don Churro Café takes taste buds on a whirlwind tour through Latin America, specializing in authentic dishes from Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, and Spain. Eschew long-haul flights for international delicacies from the expansive dinner menu, such as de pescado peruano, peruvian-style white fish marinated in lime juice and served with sweet potato, corn, and red onion ($14.95), or chilena, a chilean empanada filled with ground beef, olives, raisins, onions, and eggs ($4.50). Tongues can gambol over gambas al ajillo ($9.50), a garlicky shrimp tapa popularized in Spain after Christopher Columbus discovered seafood. Experience Ecuador without the nettlesome warm weather and poisonously cute amphibians with llapingachos, pan-fried mashed-potato cakes stuffed with mozzarella cheese ($5.25). Hearty entrees such as bandeja paisa, a colombian dish loaded with rice, beans, grilled steak, pork belly, chorizo, corn cake, and avocado ($19.95) clear esophageal highways for Don Churro’s signature desserts. Namesake churros—sweet fried pastries—tickle tonsils with nutella and dulce de leche varieties ($4.50). Dunk a tubular dainty into a spanish hot chocolate ($5.50) as you plan your grand entrance onto theSábado Gigante stage.

Don Churro’s vibrant blue walls and diverse drink menu, filled with regional wines ($6–8 per glass) and cocktails, such as mojitos, margaritas, and cuba libres ($7.50 each), lull brains into a tranquil trance akin to that produced by a matador’s hypnotically billowing belly dance.

About Don Churro Café

Fausto Garces gives South American transplants more than one reason to visit his restaurant, Don Churro Café. In addition to authentic dishes from Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, and Spain that earned Don Churro Cafè recognition as one of the region's Best New Restaurants by Northern Virginia Magazine in 2009, the restaurant entertains sports fans by broadcasting soccer matches from South American nations. Diners gaze at twin plasma televisions or a pull-down projection screen as athletes play the sport known as "fùtbol" in Latin America, and as "dangerous" in antique stores.

The dining room's yellow walls and floors are offset with royal-blue wall sections, matching seat cushions, and a bright painting of Quito––Fausto's mountain-clad Ecuadorian homeland. Illuminated by hanging light fixtures, lime-marinated ceviche and crispy plantains cleanse the palate before entrees rife with grilled pork belly, chorizo, and certified Angus beef arrive. Fresh, marinated fish filets come grilled alongside rice and patacones or buried beneath a creamy signature seafood sauce.
