After Zaiel had his pedia checkup and 2d echo a few months ago, we headed to Trinoma and dined at Pepper Lunch Express. I was craving for beef pepper rice so I ordered sizzling plate meals for us both.
Pepper Lunch (or Peppaa-ranchi in Japanese) originated in Japan in 1994. Their first outlet in the Philippines is at Power Plant mall. According to its website, it’s a “fast-steak” restaurant created by Japanese chef and inventor, Mr. Kunio Ichinose. The concept allows diners to cook their own food on their tables.
There is a wide variety of meat dishes to try (beef, chicken, pork, salmon) with your own choice of sauce – Amakuchi (teriyaki, onion sauce, honey brown sauce) or Karakuchi (garlic soy sauce).
My son do have a liking for food with eggs so I got him the Teriyaki Beef Pepper Rice with Egg (Php 188). He’s a very impatient kid but I told him to wait for the meat to be cooked.
The serving was just about right for lunchtime. I also noticed the generous amount of rice toppings (corn, pepper, and chopped leeks) compared to the beef pepper rice from The Sizzlin’ Pepper Steak restaurant. Small “things” still make a difference, right?
My plain Beef Pepper Rice (PhP 145). I ordered the cheapest from the menu. =p I love my pepper rice all mixed-up! It’s more delish that way, and it also helps the hot dish to cool faster.
