My stomach has had a pretty great week. I tried two new places and visited one of my favorite burger places in Houston.
Since Gigi's closed in the Galleria, I've been wanting to try Peli Peli, the new South African restaurant filled with a million different sauces, marinated meats, and more meat. I knew this would be my kind of place.
I couldn't resist their most popular lunch dish, the Espetada. The presentation might be intimidating if you're not a big meat eater or don't love garlic, but since I can put down some meat and love my garlic, I knew I made the right choice. The skewer hangs from the top of the plate and has a small, hot plate of garlic above to slowly drip onto the meat and vegetables. For my sides I got steamed spinach and sweet potato fries.
I didn't take pictures of the desserts. Probably because I was already in a food coma and didn't want to admit it. We gorged on cheesecake, caramel tart, chocolate mousse cake, and key lime pie. I skipped the key lime, but I was a big fan of the chocolate plates and the cheesecake. The cheesecake was one of the smoothest pieces I've had!
Friday we strolled over to Elevation Burger for a mild, not too heavy heart attack. I got the classic elevation burger, which comes with two patties. We got two sides of fries and made sure to make one of them cheesy.
