Interesting concept for a fast food restaurant

I'd always avoided having my meals at Pepper Lunch because of just one reason - that you're bound to leave the place smelling like you just finished a barbecue session... So it's definitely not a place to bring your date to, and I also wouldn't recommend Pepper Lunch if you're thinking of meeting someone special after your meal. That aside, I actually really like the food at Pepper Lunch, except that it's a little too expensive for a fast food restaurant.

I like the concept at Pepper Lunch - that you're allowed to DIY and cook the food yourself, choosing to add as much sauce you want... Brilliant for someone like me who loves having her food with lots of sauce.

My favourite dish would be the Pepper Steak. Although I don't consider it value for money (in fact, I don't consider any dish from Pepper Lunch value for money), I have to admit that it's really tasty and delicious. However, would I pay more than $10 to have this on a regular basis? Definitely not. Pepper Lunch, to me, will always be an "atas" fast food restaurant for me to have an "atas" fast food meal whenever I'm feeling slightly more generous.

affordable filling option

Singaporeans are all for the cheap thrills, even “cooking” your own food on a hot plate counts. Pepper Lunch allows you to DIY and cook your own meal. You also have the choice of choosing your own add on ingredients like egg, cheese or bean sprouts.

My favorite dish at Pepper Lunch is the Beef Pepper Rice ($6.20) with an added egg ($0.50). I personally like my beef to be cooked medium-rare and I can achieve that when I’m the one cooking it. Pepper Lunch also comes with 2 different sauces, the garlic or honey sauce. Most people prefer the honey sauce but I usually mix them together to get the best of both worlds.

One word of advice though, the smell clings onto your clothing so be prepared to smell like food after eating this.

My Idea Of A Good Lunch

If there’s Pepper Lunch, I’ll be there. I’ve been an avid fan of Pepper Lunch for years and have actually eaten Pepper Lunch for dinner three days in a row.

My favourite dish would have to be their signature pepper rice, which I always douse with their honey brown sauce and top up with cheese. The Pepper Steak used to be my favourite, but I find that it requires too much time for the beef steak to cook, and being the impatient person that I am, I switched to Pepper Rice, which has beef slices that cook much faster than steak.

For students, Pepper Lunch is an affordable dining option because of the student meal that they offer on weekdays 10am-6pm. At only $6.90, you’ll get a beef or chicken pepper rice with your choice of soft drink! Sadly my student pass will be expiring in a few months time, but nevertheless you can bet that I’ll still be frequenting Pepper Lunch.

Add extra cheese for extra oomph

Some days you just want to have the cheap thrill of cooking your own food, even if it’s just mixing it around on a hot plate. When that feeling hits me, I zoom straight to Pepper Lunch! Nowadays with Pepper Lunch Express at food courts, it’s even more convenient, woohooo.

My usual order would be their Beef Pepper Lunch. It comes with thin slices of beef surrounding a mound of rice, hiding a dollop of special margarine which gives the dish its unique fragrance. Add equal parts of their special sauces and mix it all together for a simple meal that is big on taste.

If you’re a cheese-lover like me, adding cheese to the dish allows every spoonful to have that ultra-satisfying stringy quality which surprisingly enhances the taste of the meat. Hearing the sizzling of the hotplate is also rather therapeutic, so the next time you feel upset, head down to the nearest Pepper Lunch!

Old but gold

At Pepper Lunch, you're allowed to DIY and cook the food yourself. You may choose to add as much sauce you want and have the option of adding cheese to your meal. Pepper lunch gives people the joy of cooking your own lunch and enjoying it afterwards. My favourite dish is the Pepper Steak as I have the choice of cooking and eating it well done, medium rare or rare, Although it isn’t very cheap - more than $10, it's tasty and delicious.

Pepper lunch can be found in food courts or as a stall on its own. I’ve tried the ones at United square food court and at Bedok Mall, and the standard of food is pretty constant. I would recommend Pepper Lunch to a group of friends who want to have a fun and informal get together over a meal!

DIY Goodness

The reason why Pepper Lunch is so popular is probably because it offers delicious food at affordable prices. The fragrant smell of the food cooking and the mouthwatering taste is simply unforgettable.

My favourite dish will probably be the Salmon Pepper Rice. Grilled salmon has never tasted so nice yet affordable. Another of my favourite is the Curry Chicken Pepper Rice with Cheese. The amount of curry gravy given is extremely generous, and when the cheese melts, it adds a nice touch to the curry rice.

I like how we get to grill our own dishes too. The fragrant smell of meat and cheese while waiting for the food to be done makes me anticipate the delicious food even more. Pepper Lunch is definitely one of my top affordable dining spots.

Pepper Lunch is a place that many students, including myself, like to dine at when we’re on a bigger budget. I like how we can ‘cook’ our main courses, deciding how well we want our meat to be done, and also how we can decide the amount of condiments we want to add. It’s also really exciting when the pan sizzles and smoke starts forming when you start to mix the rice and ingredients together.

The food has never disappointed me, always delicious, not too oily, always filling.
However, the prices are pretty steep and I personally feel that they should be slightly lower if they want to attract a larger crowd of young people.

Their ice cream is one of my favourite parts of the menu! They have cool flavours like Kyoto Grape, Sea Salt Caramel, Matcha Green Tea and Black Sesame to appeal to different tastes.

Pepper Lunch is a great place for small gatherings with your friends as the environment is chill and the food is good! The prices though, can take quite a toll on your wallet. Perhaps you can just think of it as an occasional ‘atas’ BBQ.

In a world of fast food where you find yourself quite restricted when it comes to customising your own dish, Pepper Lunch really stands out. Though the food sets are all defined on the menu, you can choose to mash your entire plate of rice, meat, egg and sauce together or drizzle some of that delicious brown sauce over your meat.

Pepper Lunch also serves up great soup which I really like to add into my bowl of rice, but sometimes I do place the rice together with all the other food and dump the bowl of brown sauce into the concoction (which turns out pretty fabulous).

Though, their prices are rather extravagant and I really think the food quality does not match its cost. Also, they are a bit stingy when it comes to their awesome honey brown sauce.

DIY food

Pepper Lunch is one of the many fast food restaurants in Singapore, but what makes it stand out? Well, the fact that one can cook his own food and add his own desired amount of sauce, it is no wonder that Pepper Lunch is a favourite among Singaporeans, especially students.

My personal favourite is the Curry Beef Pepper Rice with Cheese. The curry is absolutely mouth-watering and the beef is chewy and tender too, unless you cook a piece for too long and burn it, so you have to keep stirring it until the hotplate stops sizzling, at least. The cheese adds a delightful cheesy flavour to the overall dish and whets your appetite!

One downside would be that prices are slightly on the high side. Why charge so much when you have to cook it yourself? Also, there is the problem of having the smell lingering on your clothes and hair.

Great place if you would like to 'cook' your own.

Pepper Lunch, being one of the restaurants that most students frequent for a chill-out with classmates, specialises in Japanese Cuisine, especially on a hot-plate. The rice and meat are served uncooked, however, the plate is heated to 200 degrees celcius and then handed to the customers over the counter for them to mix everything together and 'cook' it well. Somehow, this restaurant ventured to our food courts as Pepper Lunch Express. The pricing wise, the ones you have seen at the food courts, Pepper Lunch Express, would be much cheaper by a few cents as compared to the restaurant.

As the name implies, the meal would be 'half-cooked' by you by mixing the rice, gravy as well as the meat together and quickly. The meal would be un-cooked if you aren't quick enough! However, what stopped me from consuming Pepper Lunch was the ever-strong 'pepper-aroma with garlic and honey' tends to linger and cling onto your clothing and the hair when you exit the restaurant. It is very annoying to the extent that it seemed impossible to get rid of the scent no matter what, to continue the rest of your shopping.

Think twice about entering that restaurant, do you want a nice self-cooked meal with a horrid scent lingering after that or a pleasant meal coming out with no 'pepper-lunch-kind-of' scent?

Yummy and enjoyable!

Pepper lunch – a very innovative way of eating and enjoying.

The food choices at Pepper lunch are great, and the amazing smell you get from entering the eatery is enough to make you salivate. The beef is generously sliced, and are rather thick and juicy. The portion is really generous right down to the beansprouts. Even after cooking the sprouts, it doesn’t turn dry. The “crispiness” to it maintains, showing just how fresh they are. There are also sauces for you to add on to your meal, which makes choosing really difficult as both sauces really do make the meal a whole different experience.

The downside is that you have to really be fast in cooking the meat. Once the hotplate cools down, there goes your opportunity in having a cooked meat. So always cook the meat first, followed by the beansprouts. After several tries, I’m sure you’ll get a hang of it, and will enjoy the process.

However so, the prices are rather steep, and it’s stopping me from visiting the eatery more often than I like to. Perhaps if their prices were to reduce slightly, I would patronize the eatery more, regardless of whichever outlet.
