    Pepper Lunch... Interestingly NEW CONCEPT....

    I was lured in by the LCD TV outside the shop, showing the procedures of cooking our own lunch.... so i thought it was really interesting and decided to give it a go....

    I wonder... when did we actually Quality Control our Customers.. New concept New concept.......

    This restaurant is indeed a noisy one.... besides the sizzling noise made by the hot plates, i could say the japanese culture really did get into the singaporeans working there.....

    They spoke broken japanese with a bad accent loudly, trying to encourage the other staff but rather it annoyed me a little...

    Annoying the customers when they enter the restaurant.... New Concept New Concept...........

    So i look through the menu.... and the food really looks appetizing..... So i ordered 2 beef patties on a hot plate....

    I was quickly issued my seat and i sat down with my friends appreciating the whole theme and environment. Shortly our food came. The friendly staff asked us if we know how to cook our food... I stunned and looked at my friend sitting next to me... and he replied... " I am a qualified cook now where is the stove......

    And we wondered.. why did we pay near to $10 to cook our own food....... When char kway teow is only $2 a plate..... New Concept New Concept......

    The food was good.... there are 2 types of sauces to choose from and it was delicious, but by the end of my meal i suddenly realised that there were spots of sauces all over my pink polo tee......

    And i pondered...... Dirty Dancing.... DIRTY EATING??? New Concept New Concept.....

    When we finished our food, the staff quickly cleared the table and went "Thankyou Please come again....."

    I starred at my friend in shock wondering...

    The faster you get your customers out of the shop the higher the turnover and so... its part of the jobscope of the staff to..... NEW CONCEPT NEW CONCEPT......

    Lunch $10........

    New Polo Tee $50...............

    Emerge smelling like delicious beef after a satisfying meal and learning a NEW CONCEPT....................... PRICELESS............

      I've seen many pepper lunch outlets around town area, and heard a lot about it. I decided to give it a try after hearing so much about it. I ordered a curry beef rice. It being my first time, I thought it was quite cool to see the dishes being served out on sizzling hot plates, and that we had to cook the meat ourselves and stir everything together. However, one thing I really disliked about the place was also the fact that we had to do the cooking ourselves. After all that smoke from our hotplate, we end up smelling like we just left a hawker centre. It stinks up your clothes and leave you feeling smelly for the rest of the day.

      Secondly, this place does sell meat like salmon and beef, and would be slightly more expensive. However, I feel that the food is priced too high, with the cheapest dish being around $8 all the way to around $16 . It is not exactly worth the money. Plus, the side dishes are also really expensive. Unless it's once in awhile, I feel that this place is not a good place to patronize because of the high cost.

        Chanced upon a Pepper Lunch outlet at the Central (shopping centre above Clarke quay mrt) when we were searching for a place to celebrate my friend's birthday last week. It was a first time for many of us. So we were quite eager to try it out.

        There was much on the menu to choose from, ranging from the rice, steak to combo series. An addition of fried egg or cheese can also be added to your set for just 50 cents more. I ordered the salmon and chicken combo which came with a drink of your choice.

        When the food arrived, the staff was very helpful in explaining to us the procedure of cooking the food. That was an added plus as we could have undercooked the food if we were too slow ( the hot plate stops sizzling after a while).

        The food came in rather large portions and was generally delicious with the chicken well seasoned. Furthermore, we were allowed to stay in the outlet for quite some time without any complaints from the staff at all. We were even greeted with smiles when we left.

        Perhaps due to the location, there was enough space for us to stay there for a long chat after dinner. But it was well-appreciated. =)
