Peri-Peri is a South African restaurant with Portuguese influences tucked away in a shopping center in Torrey Highlands, off Camino Del Sur.
The decor is very nice and the whole place is quiet and clean. Even at dinner time, we had no problem getting a table and being served promptly.
For appetizer, we had the short rib which was very, very good if a little pricey for how small it was. It was more of a one-person appetizer, than for you two, but still delicious. Other starters that are worth a try are the prawn bisque and the prawns costa do sol.
For entrees we tried the boerewors and beef sosatie combo, which came with mashed potatoes and asparagus. We also tried the lamb burger. Both entrees were quite good, especially the lamb burger, which didn’t carry the “muttonish” taste that lamb sometimes can. Their other notable entrees include the peri-peri shrimp, lamb shank, and natal curry.
They also have a dessert menu that includes ice cream.
Service was good and attentive.
A nice restaurant that is worth a try in Torrey Highlands, especially if you are in the mood for something a little different.
