Peri-Peri, A South African Restaurant, Debuts March 1

The Carmel Valley area is getting a new food option this weekend, when Peri-Peri debuts on Saturday, March 1.

Owner William Sussman, who ten years ago opened the Gaslamp's Kalahari Cafe, first intended the restaurant for La Jolla but subsequently chose a 3,000-square-foot space with an outdoor dining area in the Torrey Highlands Village Center.

Sussman was raised in South Africa and named the restaurant after a signature chili sauce made with herbs and aromatics. At Peri-Peri, the menu includes shellfish and chicken, marinated in the spicy sauce, along with traditional curries and other classic dishes from the region, from lamb skewers to boerewors, a house made farmer's sausage.

Open daily at 11 a.m., the restaurant will stock South African wine and bottled beer from Africa. Other interesting menu items include flame-grilled sardines, chicken livers with lemon butter and bobotie, a casserole that tops a layer of spiced ground beef, nuts and dried fruit with a savory custard.
