Peska Seafood Culture
Helmed by star Executive Chef Omar Pereney, Peska delivers some of the most unique and delicious seafood dishes in Houston. Fresh, flavorful and well-executed dishes with beautiful presentation are what guests can expect to discover at Peska.
Chef Omar Pereney
Born in Venezuela, Pereney has been making waves in the culinary world since the age of 12. Now 21 years old, Pereney is a highly recognized chef throughout South America and Mexico. He is one of the youngest chefs in the United States to have reached the position of Executive Chef.
Pereney’s talent is undeniable, and his menu is sure to please the most demanding palette. On my most recent visit to the restaurant, I had the Ceviche Peruano, Lobster Cappuccino, and the brunch pancakes.
The Ceviche Peruano is a colorful combination of textures and flavors, and includes mahi mahi, octopus, yellow peppers, cancha (corn) and sweet potatoes. The contrast of citrus with corn and sweet potato make this one of my favorite ceviche dishes.
The Lobster Cappuccino is a lobster bisque with white truffle foam, lobster and brie crostini. That may sound like a dish that leans toward the heavy side, but it was surprisingly light and filling, not to mention beautifully presented.
