Joining in on the Pepper Lunch Craze

Pepper Lunch opened in the small complex under London Drugs on No. 3 Road and also conveniently next to Beard Papa’s! I arrived right at 6pm and there was no line up yet phew! However, 15 mins later there was a line up of 10 people. I’m probably the last person to be blogging about them now (although this is a late blog post). The restaurant looks pretty nice with mostly booth seating and large pictures on the wall.

You order at the front and then they tell you which table to go to. They have some pricier premium steak options and you can make it a combo with a soft drink and miso soup for an extra $2.

Pepper Lunch

I had the Pepper Burger Steak which came with some bean sprouts and greens as well as some kind of garlic soy sauce. The plate was sizzling so much it was steaming up my phone camera when I tried to take a picture. I quickly moved the meat onto of the bean sprouts so that it wouldn’t burn and so the bean sprouts could be cooked more. The meat had a distinct peppery flavour and it was really soft. I thought it was similar to the one I had at Suika before but much more peppery and in a good way.

Since my rice came on the side, I added a lot of their honey garlic soy sauce to make it tastier. On the other hand, I probably could’ve just dumped my rice onto the hot plate and mixed it up.

Pepper LunchThis was the Extra Beef Pepper Rice combo with an egg added. The beef and rice definitely tasted peppery! There doesn’t look like a lot of “extra” beef though.

Teppan Kitchen in the Aberdeen food court serves up something very similar (I think I’ve only been to Teppan Kitchen twice so can’t really compare much) but the quality of the meat seems to be slightly better here and there are more options. The food was good but it’s not really something I would usually line up for since I’m not that into sizzling plates but you should give it a try when they’re less busy. I gotta say their service is pretty efficient! Someone quickly clears the table after a group leaves and they also check in on you to see if everything is good.
