Peli Peli

Chef and owner Paul Friedman channels his international roots into the fusion fare at Peli Peli, named for the South African spice that flavors its signature flame-pepper chicken dish. His menu mingles European-style focaccia and Chilean sea bass with South African classics such as homemade boerewors sausage, washing it all down with rivers of South African [wine]. ( Chef Paul was recently honored with the Chef of Chefs award for his traditional South African bobotie dish at Houston's 2013 Wine & Food Week. He also mixes the selection of dipping sauces—such as mint mojito, roasted garlic, and spicy ginger—that tag along with each entree, enabling a different burst of flavor or color of cocktail-napkin art with each bite. The food's not the only thing that expresses Peli Peli's South African influences. The dining room's glowing, 30-foot-tall central pillar recalls the nation's towering acacia trees, anchoring an avant-garde architectural scheme that the Houston Chronicle calls "eye-popping." Voted Houston’s Best Live Music Venue as well as Best Romantic Bar by Citysearch users in 2009, the moodily lit space also hosts live music Monday–Saturday evenings and live jazz during Sunday brunch.

Customer Reviews

This is an experience! The service is perfection, the atmosphere is romantic. The food is a party in your mouth. The owner (or manager, can't remember which) visits your table, visits with the guests, like welcoming family back. I'd give it 10 stars if I could...

Get the award winning bobotie!!!! It is deliciously decadent for an appetizer!!! We had never been and were super impressed not only with the fare (exquisite and unique), but also with the ambiance and the waitstaff. We will definitely go back!!!!!!!!
