My Pepper Lunch experience..

Okay, let's be honest here.. When my Panget and I tried Sizzling Pepper Steak at Trinoma last year, we weren't impressed - at all. The food was well, it was just alright and the fact that you needed to cook it yourself - well, that was such a turn off to my Panget. He always tells me - why pay for food that you yourself will cook! Hahaha.. I partially agree, but I guess that's the fun in it right?! Cooking your own meal at a restaurant!

So when I read from Chuvaness' blog last year that she's opening the original Pepper Lunch here. I got curious - so what's the difference, right? I mean seriously - they both have the same idea - and practically the same name too!! I really wanted to try it out!

Chicken Pepper Rice
comes with a FREE drink!

Last Wednesday - I was able to try the place out with fellow bloggers Sophie, Phoebe, JV, Juned, Fran and AJ. We all loved Pepper Lunch!

Can you see the crushed pepper?

I can't get enough! I just had to post this, again!

For a person who's NOT eaten rice for 18 months - the Chicken Pepper Rice was the BEST fried rice I've tasted!! Hahaha.. The wait was soooooooo worth it!! I loved it! And I think I wanted more! (I honestly did!) Everything looked great! I was spying on most everyone's meals! Not only did I see happy faces, I think most enjoyed the Pepper Lunch experience! I just have to say that I secretly envied all those who ordered the beef! Geez! What a great time to NOT eat meat! Argh!! But in fairness - my Chicken Pepper Rice was the bomb!! :) I'd love to have it again! I can't wait to bring my Panget here!! :)

I so loved the peppery taste! I kept on telling Sophie! The flavors were exploding in my mouth! What I loved most was the temperature of the food. The sizzling plate kept the food hot (not warm!) just the way I liked it! Add to that the two wonderful sauces! Brown Honey Sauce and Garlic Soy Sauce - I'd have to say that I like them both because, one was salty and the other was sweet! Such a perfect combination for a salty/sweet lover like me! I took turns even portioning my food in half - just to enjoy both sauces!

Pepper Lunch was wonderful - add to that a great dinner group - well, it's almost perfect!! Why do I say almost perfect? Well, it would have been perfect if I ate meat! Argh!! But no regrets..

I am honestly at a loss for words, that's why it took so long for me to write this up! I think one should experience Pepper Lunch to see what I mean. As for the difference? You have to try it out yourself to see.. :)

Reviews of the 'Dinner Group':
AJ - Pepper Lunch is Pepper Lunch!
Fran - I love you Pepper Lunch!
JV - Pepper Lunch at Rockwell kills the no rice diet
Juned - Pepper Lunch.. its the steak
Phoebe - When foodies unite at Pepper Lunch
Sophie - My 'initiation' at Pepper Lunch

I found it really funny that outside the resto (and inside too!) - there's a flat screen TV showing you the correct cooking methods! I mean, how hard can it be right? Well, that's the tricky part - if you're coming in for the first time - you better watch the video, so you'll know what to do - You won't need to panic when your food arrives! Hahaha... :) I am one who loves watching cooking shows - it's so soothing and calming! I love watching them work around the kitchen - now, why am I saying this? Well, I found the video really relaxing! Hahahaha.. (I know, out of topic!!) Click here to watch the video

Osaka Diaries: Revisiting Ichiran Ramen

We fell in love with Ichiran Ramen when we visited Tokyo last year .  And since learning that we would be going to Osaka - I made sure to know where Ichiran was in Osaka.  It was going to be a sure restaurant to eat at, no matter what.  It was along the Dotonbori River - I looked at the map online and saw that it was fairly in the same area as our hotel, Fraser Residences.  I informed my Panget that it might be a long walk - but we knew that wherever it was - we had to dine there again. And two Tuesdays ago - it happened.  It rained the whole day that Tuesday - and I was telling myself that getting to Ichiran was quite impossible.  But when I asked my Panget and my friend Selene - well, they both said to go ahead with the plan.   Bahala na! So we walked it - while it was drizzling.  Imagine a good 15 minute walk to the Dotonbori River.  It was no joke.  We had to cross three (3) major roads to get to Dotonbori River.  The kids, Kailee and Alleya were dressed in raincoats, sitting p

Breastfeeding Mama!

"Welcome to the Milk Mama Diaries Carnival (July). For this month, we join the National Nutrition Council - Department of Health in celebrating Nutrition Month with the theme "Isulong ang Breastfeeding - Tama, Sapat at EKsklusibo!" Participants will share their experiences in promoting breastfeeding or their tips on how breastfeeding should be promoted. Please scroll down to the end of this post and check out the other carnival participants." When I got pregnant, I knew instantly that I would be breastfeeding my baby.  My mom found it odd that I decided to breastfeed - this was because I grew up formula fed.  My twin brother and I were given formula since birth, there was no attempt whatsoever to breastfeed.  In fact my mom recounted that she was given medicine to stop the milk production.  My pedia, Dr. Joy Ty-Sy said that during my mom's time (when she had us) it was the boom of formulas, that it was the trend that time.  I grew up with formula, my c
