Peli Peli

So a new Peli Peli opened up inside the Galleria mall, occupied the formerly Gigi's space.
Some co-workers wanted to give them a try, so we ordered all appetizers to try them out.
This is their stuffed mushroom, and they used Chilean Sea Bass to be the center.  Very delicious, the sauce over it I could lick it up, it was so good.  I didn't use the sauce they provided here. 
Which is the same sauce used here.  This is their Bobotie, which looks alot like eggrolls, but I guess every cuisine has a version of it.  It is curried beef inside, carrot, and mango chutney.  The sauce here, I did try, it goes well, but it taste just as good without.
South African Flatbread, but maybe they should call it Italian Flatbread, or just Flatbread.  They douse the entire thing with olive oil, Italian Seasoning on top and parmesan cheese.  It is delicious, but not sure how it is South African.
Peli Peli South African Wings.  Yes, much like the Buffalo Wings you know and love.  The seasoning is awesome, and let me tell you, it's not on its way down that you felt that spicy kick.  They have offered Blue Cheese and Ranch for dipping as well.  It's very good, highly recommend it.  Just watch that kick the first time.

I know Peli Peli is very popular on Friday and Saturday nights, so best try to catch them at lunch.  This is not the chef's first go round, he has done many restaurant concepts and this one is very popular with Houstonians.  Give them a try, even take out, but if you are here to brave the dinner crowd, make sure you make a reservation or spend some time at their bar.
