In a stunning transfer, co-owner and chef Ryan Stewart introduced that, lower than two months after opening, Mozambik South African Kitchen in The Galleria 5085 Westheimer has already closed. It opened on October 8 and its final day of enterprise was Sunday, November 28. The restaurant, which began in South Africa, the place it has a number of areas, took over the previous Peli Peli location in Houston’s premier high-end mall. In accordance with a press launch, the Woodlands location at 1201 Lake Woodlands Parkway is flourishing, and can stay open.

In accordance with a press launch, Mozambik inherited a nasty state of affairs that began when that location was nonetheless operated by Peli Peli. “Sadly, we ran up towards too many compounding points with this retailer,” stated Stewart by way of press launch. “Between the massive quantity of debt we inherited from Peli Peli, labor shortages, disagreements with our landlord and considerably lowered foot site visitors within the Galleria, it simply doesn’t make sense to maintain this retailer going. We’ve a thriving location in The Woodlands, and we don’t plan to depart the Houston space any time quickly.”

Houston Meals Finder has requested feedback from each Stewart and Simon Property Group, the bulk proprietor of The Galleria mall, concerning the character of the disagreements, in addition to the foot site visitors state of affairs. The closing comes the ultimate day of Black Friday weekend, which is traditionally the busiest time of yr for retailers.

Stewart’s preliminary work in Houston was with Peli Peli and the also-defunct Peli Peli Kitchen. He and his household moved to the Bayou Metropolis so he might refresh the menus at these eating places. When Peli Peli group dissolved, Stewart took over the Galleria and Woodlands areas, whereas unique Peli Peli chef Paul Friedman took over the Classic Park location to open his personal restaurant.

I lately visited The Galleria location, and within the article that I began writing based mostly on that go to, I known as Stewart’s strategy “a breath of contemporary air for South African delicacies in Houston.” I discovered the flavors invigorating, the dishes attention-grabbing and the service exemplary, so I hope that Stewart can use the extra secure Woodlands location as a springboard to convey his meals to extra Houston-area diners.

Within the meantime: Stewart and government chef Macey Maples have added brunch with South African-inflected dishes comparable to Soet Dawn Dutch Child Pancakes, kebab benedict (intriguingly described as, “a tower of grilled steak hanging over two Eggs Benedict”) and South African Koeksisters, that are conventional fried pastries served with caramel sauce. Brunch is obtainable on each Saturdays and Sundays.
