Dining Guide

Peli Peli

The tony Galleria location boasts dramatic interiors with illuminated walls of sunset colors, a fitting backdrop for bold South African flavors and dramatic presentations. Case in point, a basted filet espetada, a skewer of tender, grilled beef chunks hung vertically, with garlic herb butter melting down the meat stack. We also enjoyed the Great Karoo lamb chops: four meaty chops, well-seasoned, with a side of fragrant mint sauce. But our favorite dish of the night was an appetizer, flaky-crusted samosas stuffed with curried chicken and served with two dipping sauces, mango chutney and sweet curry cream. (The restaurant’s name honors the formidable African chile known as peli peli, peri peri, piri piri—take your choice.)
