The Quirky Peko Peko, South Melbourne
Intro: Totally quirky Japanese & Taiwanese influenced eatery, catering for the small and large appetites.
Details: 190 Wells Street South Melbourne Phone (03) 9686 1109
Surroundings: Little picture frames with black and white animated characters adorn the walls, sweetly casual and sociable atmosphere.
Liquid consumption: Green Tea Latte- smooth and an excellent alternative to the traditional latte.
Entree: Just Wings- golden battered wings with the flavours of five spice salt was unbelievably addictive. I could have eaten ten of these myself….but of course, I had kept my cool in front of my peeps…little do they know…
Main: Pros: The menu here is hilarious. It separates the meals according to your appetite from small – large dishes with quirky dish names like Pop Chicken (v. Popular), Chicken Dance etc… Cons: This place is a 2 minute walk from my residence, possibility it can send me broke!
Crispy Honey Beef (bento box)– fried mini strips of tender battered beef, then wok tossed with fresh vegetables and an amazing honey soy sweet sour sauce. This literally, bursts in your mouth, with immense flavour that makes you boast about how good your meal is compared to those of your friends. Side condiments include spring rolls, fresh green beans, steamed rice and sweet dipping sauce.
Dessert: If only…
Bring a date here? Yes, hurry up.
Night out with friends here? Yes, but if there are 4 or more of you, perhaps book yo.
Service: Prompt and friendly.
