Restaurant Review: Peko Peko

Location: 181 Wells St, Southbank
Phone: (03) 9686 1109
Cuisine: Modern Taiwanese
Overall Impression: 6.5/10

Peko Peko is a cosy Taiwanese eatery that serves Japanese-inspired cuisine and authentic Taiwanese fare. The restaurant is decorated with framed pictures of cartoons and comics which gives it a very relaxed and fun vibe. 
The Pop Chicken (which is beautifully battered and crispy morsels of chicken served with steamed rice and two sides) is one of the most popular items on their menu along with the Peko Box (which is the house rendition of a bento box) and Beef About (a Taiwanese beef noodle soup). 
While options for desserts are limited, their Earl Grey tea panna cotta and black sesame ice-cream (when it appears on the specials board is a brilliant choice). 
Given its popularity, the main thing you have to bear in mind about Peko Peko is that this restaurant is almost always packed to the brim. So either show up without a reservation and be prepared to have to opt for the take-away option or make a booking at least a day in advance.
