On a wet and cold busy Friday night, I can’t really go past a meal of piping hot beef pepper rice from Pepper Lunch.
I first heard about Pepper Lunch when I was still living in Singapore and was fascinated with the hot stone plate and the whole cooking on the table concept.
And when I was in Japan by myself, I found an outlet in Shibuya which I had to try. Pepper Lunch is different in Japan as it’s considered a fast food outlet. There are no waitstaff and you use the “vending ticket machine” system to place an order. Which worked awesomely well – saves heaps of time and very efficient indeed.
I made it just on time for their happy hour with 1 minute spare (achievement of the day) and ordered a beef pepper rice.
Piping hot plate with a melted cheese and a soft yolk over rice with corn – I’m just drooling now thinking of it. I drizzled it with the garlic sauce (I prefer this than compared to the ‘sweet sauce’) and mixed it all up whilst everything was cooked to my liking.
