Peli Peli: Dine On South African Fare Under the Acacia Tree

September 3, 2015 1:31 pm

Peli Peli’s unique name translates loosely into “bird’s eye chili,” a versatile spice that was discovered on the plains of Southern Africa during the 15th century. This name is appropriate to describe the incredibly flavorful fare at Peli Peli, an eatery specializing in South African fare and synonymous with spicy sauces and complex marinades. Peli Peli is the only restaurant of its kind in the state of Texas, and its menu includes an eclectic blend of traditional South African dishes, American cuisine classics, and even some Dutch and Asian influences.

The focal point of the restaurant’s interior is the 30-foot-tall acacia tree, but the avant garde architecture, colorful lights, and spacious dining areas also stand out. Peli Peli is especially well known for its private dining areas, which are ideal for corporate events or family functions.

Make reservations at Peli Peli on the restaurant’s website.

Kabob Korner: Delight Your Taste Buds With Grilled Meats

August 27, 2015 1:31 pm

Since opening its doors in 2010, Kabob Korner has served an eclectic combination of South Asian and Mediterranean cuisines, with special emphasis on smoky, delicious, grilled and barbecued foods.

Order a whole chicken, marinated with yogurt, herbs, and lemon juice and grilled in the traditional tandoori style, or try the dry-rubbed and skewered beef seekh kabob. And don't forget the thin-shaved lamb gyros, which come from lamb roasts that are slow-grilled on a spit for hours. Whatever you order, don't forget to round out your meal with an array of mouth-watering side dishes. Try dipping garlicky naan into a plate of creamy, house-made hummus, or bite into a crispy vegetable samosa filled with spiced potatoes and served with tangy-sweet tamarind sauce.

Eating in the bright and casual Kabob Korner dining room is pleasant, but if you want to eat at home or at the office instead, the restaurant's online ordering system makes it simple and efficient to place a take-out order.
