Peli Peli

From the wilds of Tomball, Peli Peli asserts its South African self with big flavors and dramatic interiors. The dining room is sensational, illuminated like a safari sunset. For lunch, a seared filet of flaky kingklip was topped with diced scallops and a swath of citrusy butter sauce. A steak sampler featured three generous filet tips, respectively sporting blue cheese, garlic butter, and Madagascar peppercorn sauce. Two were tender, one a bit chewy. Our sides—mango coleslaw, sautéed spinach—were tasty, if standard. All in all, we appreciate the departure from the same old same old. (6/15)
