Pepper Lunch – 8 new tantalising dishes to you won’t want to miss
Hailing from Japan, Pepper Lunch is a popular DIY restaurant that promises superior-quality ingredients and a unique culinary experience for everyone. The most exciting part about dining here is that you get to play chef! Here, every dish is served on a Japanese Teppan. You get to stir and mix the ingredients while watching them sizzle right in front of your eyes. Immerse yourself in their rich and diverse menu which covers everything from chicken, to seafood, to my favorite steak. Pepper Lunch has recently introduced 8 tantalizing new items to ensure that all palates are pleased!
As a true blue meat-lover, it was a given that my favorite out of the 8 new dishes would be the Meat Trio Deluxe, which sees a juicy chicken steak, tender BBQ beef slices, and a Hamburg steak, served with a good portion of white rice. Pepper Lunch prides itself on the quality of ingredients used in all their dishes, and this dish is no exception – Australian beef is used to craft the Hamburg, and only U.S beef slices are used in the Meat Trio Deluxe. I especially liked the beef slices. After drizzling on the special BBQ sauce, the beef slices were simply irresistible. For the price, I thought that the portions of meat were very generous and filling.
For seafood fans, you can indulge in the new Seafood Trio Deluxe. It comprises saba, Japanese scallops, and a chunky salmon steak that’ll get you salivating. Served with a side of bean sprouts, corn and long beans, this dish makes for a really well-balanced diet and we have no doubt that it will please your palate. If you just can’t get enough of seafood, we strongly recommend that you go for this. It comes with a bowl of rice so you won’t leave hungry.
If you prefer pasta to rice, opt for the Salmon & Prawn Pasta which comprises hearty salmon slices, and crunchy prawns, swimming in a pool of rich cream sauce. The Teppan helps to thicken the sauce so if you enjoy your pasta creamy and rich, this one is for you! Keeping to their promise of using only top quality ingredients, Pepper Lunch is now using pasteurized eggs. Most of us don’t cook (at least I don’t) but Pepper Lunch has also kindly compiled a short guide to ensure that you get your food cooked right. Hooray!
For greater value, we recommend the Mixed Katsu Toji which is made up of beef slices, golden-brown chicken cutlet, and crispy fried ebi, all topped generously with scrambled eggs and toji sauce. Due to the use of pasteurized eggs, you can now safely enjoy your eggs half-cooked. We enjoyed this dish because of the generous amount of eggs. There can never be too much egg! The toji sauce enhances the flavors but doesn’t overpower the dish. With such a wide variety of ingredients in this dish, it is definitely a steal for just $13.90!
Rejoice seafood-lovers because Pepper Lunch has also included a Cheesy Seafood Risotto ($12.90)! The sauce used in the Risotto is a different sauce than the one used in the Carbonara so don’t discount this just yet. Once mixed, you’ll notice that the risotto is significantly thick and sticky in texture. Owing to their use of premium short grained rice, the risotto tends to be gooier since the rice absorbs the moisture from the sauce during the mixing. If you like cheese and cream based dishes, this would definitely appeal to you!
Last but not least, we tried the Ebi Fry Curry Rice and the Chicken Katsu Curry Rice. Since both dishes use the same curry sauce, the only difference lies in the main ingredient – Ebi or Chicken Katsu. I’ve a relatively low tolerance for spice so it was a relief that the curry wasn’t spicy. Bite into a thin crispy golden brown batter and you will be greeted with either succulent chicken or crunchy prawns. Either way, we don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
To top it all off, Pepper Lunch has also introduced a medley of chilled desserts and drinks! We got the Milo Ice Cream Float and it hit all the right notes. We reckon it will appeal to most but if you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, go for the Ribena Float!
