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.
