Journey of flavours at Peron Peron

Situated in the heart of the Ballito Lifestyle Centre, Argentinian Grill Peron Peron still feels like a hidden gem that needs to be discovered and its menu thoroughly explored. Which is exactly what we did when our Get It team were invited for lunch!

If you’ve ever eaten at a restaurant owned by Argentinian-born Hugo Palacio, you’ll know the food he serves comes with a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that is hard to explain and impossible to reproduce.

Even before you sit down though, Peron Peron catapults you into a South American wonderland with its dramatic décor, rustic finishes and eclectic vibe.

Despite it being a regular Monday afternoon, we were pleasantly surprised by the fact that the restaurant started filling up soon after we arrived. Perhaps this gem is not so hidden after all.

Opting for a ‘shared eating’ style lunch allowed us all to try a variety of dishes on the menu. Our starters included Mejillones Pimenton (fresh mussels with olive oil, garlic paprika, onions and cream with ciabatta), Calamari Chapas (grilled calamari tubes with cajun or lemon butter sauce, rocket and fresh lemon) and Provalone A La Plancha (grilled mature provolone cheese with red peppers, oregano, rocket and pesto). The mussels and calamari were the stand-out favourites. For mains we enjoyed the Chicken Pincho (skewered chicken fillet with red peppers and onions), a table-sharing portion of Picanha (rump cap – the most popular cut in the house), Ojo De Bife (rib-eye served on the bone) and Camarones Diablo (six large Argentinian prawns with peri peri, lemon butter or Cajun spice). Each dish was cooked to perfection and full of flavour.

Forcing ourselves to make space for dessert, we shared the Churros Con Dulce De Leche (fried pastry sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, served with ice cream and caramel) and Flan De La Casa (homemade cream caramel). Heaven! Do yourself a favour and embark on the unique Argentinian tasting journey Peron Peron has to offer – you won’t regret it!
