It has been quite a journey since we first opened the doors to Peli Peli in April 2009. As many of you are aware, we had a difficult time launching the restaurant on limited funds. After finally opening, our challenge became how to entice guests to try our new South African fusion concept. Now, five years later, here we are opening our second location in the Galleria. We could not be doing this without you, our loyal customers, and are very grateful for the opportunity to have met many of you who have kept us in business throughout the years. For that, we could never thank you enough.
Now for the 2015 news: We are embarking on an exciting and new journey! In addition to the Galleria location, we are evolving as a company and a brand. Our focus in the coming year will be on defining what "Peli Peli" means for us as well as for the public. While we will never stray from our three core values: amazing and unique food, excellent service with personal engagement, and wonderful ambiance, our goal is to be much more than just another restaurant. The community has given so much to us and now it's our turn to give back.
We are pleased to announce that, beginning in January, the Peli Peli team will be creating and participating in monthly and quarterly charitable activities to benefit those in need. Additionally, we are extending an invitation to you, our friends and customers, to volunteer alongside us in helping make a difference in the lives of others.
Here's what we have planned for the upcoming months:
If you would like to join us on our first service project on January 24, 2015, please email Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org or use our online contact form . Only a limited number of volunteers will be accepted due to space restrictions, so please reserve your spot now.
If you know of an organization that would benefit from a day of service with our staff and customers, please email us your organization info to email@example.com.
Expect to hear more about our charity programs over the next few months. We are super excited about our new initiative and hope that it encourages other restaurants and companies to do the same. Thanks to everyone!

How do we describe Peli Peli? In one word, FLAVOR! Peli Peli (also known as Piri
Piri or Peri Peri), which means Bird’s-Eye Chili, is a spice that was discovered
by the Portuguese in the 15th Century on the plains of Southern Africa. The
spice rapidly became popular when used to prepare sauces and marinades for
chicken and seafood cuisine. Peli Peli's cuisine, known as South African Fusion,
features authentic South African delicacies along with American steak, chicken and
seafood favorites that are prepared in Chef Paul Friedman's South African style. read more >>
