Power Food Finds at the Power Plant (Part 1: Pepper Lunch)

Power Food Finds at the Power Plant (Part 1: Pepper Lunch)

Monday, January 26, 2009

I finally got to try Pepper Lunch and I love it! We arrived early to avoid the line that usually forms in front, evidenced by the queue barrier post as seen in the picture below.

It's kind of a high-end fast food joint, it being semi self-service. You get in line for your orders, the computer monitor shows you your bill, then you pay with cash or credit card.

The crew assigns you a table number (usually you get to choose if there are hardly any customers, which is rarely) then you go off and wait for your food. The seats are comfortable with soft leatherette pillows, nice for lounging around or resting off your full tummy after the meal.

I ordered one of their bestsellers, the Beef Pepper Rice (P198) with drinks (P235). Though with a lot of freshly ground black peppers (obviously), the taste is just right, not in the least bit overdone. A little bit oily, but still delicious. It's quite filling too, it's sort of feeling that you're well beyond satiated but you can't seem to stop yourself from finishing the whole thing.

How To Enjoy a Pepper Rice Meal:
1. When served, turn the meat over and over to cook, while the plate is still hot.
2. Then cut the meat into smaller pieces. Pour some sauce (you can choose between honey brown sauce or garlic soy sauce -- I like the Honey Brown sauce).
3. Then mix it up with the rice and corn. Voila! Bon Appetit!

There's also the Salmon Pepper Rice (P275) with drinks (P312). The salmon is a bit dry though, so I suggest putting more sauce. Other meat options for the pepper rice are pork, chicken and curry beef.

Besides the pepper rice, they also offer steaks, hamburgers and a combination of meats, ala carte or with rice and drinks. My mom tried the Pork and Chicken Combo (P250) with rice and drinks (P320). It was ok, but I think the endearing factor of the restaurant's concept is the mix of the special pepper rice with the viands so our vote still goes to the Beef Pepper Rice.

I haven't tried Pepper Lunch, Makati seems so far from QC, hehe...

Anyway, check out my post about Red Mango. A new frozen yogurt place. =)

you have to be careful in cooking your food as the heat in the pan will cause the meat to be overcooked.
