About Peko Peko Restaurant

For modern Taiwanese food in a friendly and relaxed environment, go to Peko Peko Restaurant in South Melbourne. This Wells Street eatery is decked out with funky calligraphy drawings, which accurately reflect both Peko Peko’s vibe and owner Jack Wu’s quirky and fun personality. Pop open a cold bottle of Taiwan Gold or Taipei Brew beer and share a few small plates with friends. Try the signature pop chicken (twice crumbed fried chicken with a salt and pepper seasoning) and crumbed Taiwanese pork cutlet with pickled cabbage; before indulging in larger dishes. Specials may include the spicy calamari with housemade Taiwanese sausage, while a variety of dumpling and noodle dishes keep diners happy. For dessert, it’s hard to go past Peko Peko's cotton sponge cheesecake with green tea ice cream.

You'll never look at Taiwanese food the same ever again.
Food: My go-to choices are: Wasabi Mayo Prawn and Just Wings, Big Boss Fried Ribs, Softshell Crab with Brown Rice or Pork Chop Addiction/Chilli Chicken with Jasmine Rice, and the matcha ice cream. Setting: Cosy. Service: Book ahead, there's ALWAYS a waitlist. Service can sometimes be slow during peak time. Value: Superb value for money.
