Peri-Peri brings spicy taste of South Africa to local residents

Hot Rock Filet Mignon – Certified Angus

Restaurateur William Sussman has spiced things up on the North County dining scene with the addition of Peri-Peri.
The dining establishment — named after its signature fiery sauce — opened March 1 in the Torrey Highlands Village Center, at 7845 Highland Village Place, Suite C101, in San Diego.
“We’re looking forward to giving San Diego’s South African community a taste of the traditions they love, whilst introducing these new, vibrant flavors to the local San Diego community and creating a hub of gastronomical goodness for everyone to enjoy,” Sussman said.

Rant with Randi: How well do we really know people — and how much should we try to do so?

Randi Crawford

C.S. Lewis once said, “What can you ever really know of other people’s souls — of their temptations, their opportunities, their struggles? One soul in the whole of creation you do know: and it is the only one whose fate is placed in your hands. If there is a God, you are, in a sense, alone with Him.”

I just read a story about a girl who was abducted by her mother’s live-in boyfriend, and she was found 10 years later. When they questioned the neighbors, they all said what a great guy he was, and that he was always having fun parties for his wife and family. Do we ever really know people?

Located in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center, the Italian restaurant is known for its rotating seasonal menu. In fact, Chef Woody Benitez changes the menu so often that diners order from a handwritten list of dishes that’s updated monthly. Sauces, pastas and dishes are made from scratch with fresh local produce and seafood.

The 102-page document, published by the county’s Office of Emergency Services and available at www.readysandiego.org, also summarizes damage and costs of the May fires.

Dave Roberts

June is when county policy-makers review and approve budgets for the year ahead.

One of the spending programs in our budget is the $3.5 million Community Enhancement Program. To prepare for the dispersal of these funds to local nonprofit groups, each of the five Supervisors must recommend how one-fifth – or $708,000 – of the program’s budget should be allocated. The recommendations must pass with at least four votes.
