HOUSTON, TX --- July 20, 2017 --- Vista Equities Group is proud to announce that the highly anticipated Peli Peli, a popular South African fusion restaurant, is officially opening its third location at LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch this Monday, July 24. Peli Peli will be located at 23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd., in Phase I of the mixed-use development, adjacent to Central Green Park.

"It is a dream of ours to be able to open a Peli Peli in Katy! I graduated from Mayde Creek High School and currently live in Cinco Ranch, so this is a bit of a homecoming for me," said Peli Peli’s Chief Marketing Officer Thomas Nguyen.

Known for their creative spin on South African cuisine, Peli Peli has garnered plenty of attention as one of the most prominent upscale restaurants in the city. With signature menu items such as the Espetada and Kingklip with Shredded Scallops, along with an extensive wine and cocktail menu, Katy residents are eager for a restaurant of this caliber to open its doors in their community.

"Peli Peli is a melting pot of flavors made up of so many different cultures, so we believe that it’s perfect for Katy,” said Nguyen. “We are bringing a new fine-dining experience to Katy that we hope will be a contribution the Katy community can be proud of.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Peli Peli to our development,” said Woody Mann, President of Vista Equities Group. “We seek to bring the best food and retail developments to LaCenterra, so having Peli Peli open its doors is exciting. Katy residents have been looking forward to this for some time and we are proud to be able to cater to our growing community.”
