"Peg may be a touch snacky and insubstantial for some, but it dares to do something a little unexpected and it does it with the anchoring principle of fastidious, deep-bore deliciousness." READ REVIEW

"Peg will not be to everyone’s taste, but it is one of my favourite openings of 2019 so far. It is bold at a time when the restaurant world is being very cagey, and I respect them for it." READ REVIEW

"Colossal greed emboldened me to try pork collar marinated in koji (a fermentation agent), grilled and dressed with tare sauce and served with salted turnips. It’s a funny cut, packed with piggish flavour, but composed of at least three textures of muscle and lots of interesting connective physiology. Someone with a penchant for homogeneous premium cuts might not get it, but the chef clearly does. I ate it with my eyes shut in rapture."
