What I thought would be a laidback Saturday at my parents place turned out to be a whole day affair at 2 different malls running errands, watching a movie, lunch and then dinner at Pepper Lunch. Pepper Lunch serves their viands raw on a patented electromagnetic plate that is heated to a certain temperature. Diners then cook them to their liking and eat it as is or mix it up to resemble fried rice. Honey brown sauce and garlic soy sauce are available per table and may be added for even more flavor.
I skipped my usual order of Beef Pepper Rice and went for the Curry Beef Pepper Rice with Cheese (P225).
Mom had the Tokusen "Big" Ribeye Steak (P635). My one bite of ultra soft meat just melted in my mouth. Although she didn't add any seasoning it tasted alright. I liked the creamy mashed potatoes too.
Sadly I wasn't that impressed with dad's Teriyaki Chicken Omu Pepper Rice (P198). The sauce was served on the side and hasn't been poured yet when I took this photo.
If I still had room for dessert, I would have gotten one of their ala modes. If I were super hungry at the time we ordered I would have convinced my parents to share a Shake! Shake! Salad.
I'm hoping for more days like these, quality and quantity time with the parental units plus great tasting food.
