About the restaurant

Pero Restaurant is as rich and diverse as eastern african culture. The spectrum Pero Restaurant cuisine can be said to lie between are two dietary extremes: vegetarianism and carnivorism. The essence of good Eastern African cooking revolves around the appropriate use of aromatic spices. The skill lies in subtle blending of a variety of spices to enhance, rather than overwhelm the basic flavour of a particular dish. It is interesting to see an eastern african chef at work with a palette of spices, gratuitously sprinkling these powders in exact pinches into the dish in front of him. It is these complexities of regional food in Eastern Africa that make it such a fascinating experience. We at the Pero Restaurant and Lounge aim to bring the most traditional dishes from all corners of Eastern Africa, maintain the classic Eritrean recipes, and enhance the offering with some signature dishes to reflect the changing food trends in modern Africa. We will gladly prepare a dish you request that does not appear on the menu, time permitting.
