Until now, I have not tried Pepper Lunch in Singapore. Well my assessment of any of their meals just fell short of any real makan value. Ok first, most of Pepper Lunch’s meals consist of steak. Usually if I want get a real good steak then I would head to one of those steak house for a $30 steak, or if I want to get a steak that can gives me top value for minimum cost then I will head to Aston for a $10 steak, so where does a Pepper Lunch’s $16.90 steak’s meal comes into the picture?

I don’t know about you, but I am never a fan of those kind of food where I have to do my own cooking like those Hot Stones or whatever food that I can watch it sizzled in front of me. The thing is I find no joy in trying to stone fry my own steak and risk having the bits of oil jumping at me and most importantly those kind of meals are not cheap either. It may cost you about the same as those meals where you have a real chef doing the cooking for you. So where is the real value of such ’self cooked’ meals? For me there is none except that unless you love watching how your food are being cooked more than actually eating it. Well I believe there are actually people who are like that, that’s why there is a demand for this kind of meal, agree?

Ok upon reaching Jakarta, my partner suggested eating Pepper Lunch and I can’t help but were thinking “Why would I want to come all the way here to eat something that can be found in singapore easily?

Nonetheless we made our way to the Pepper Lunch outlet at Mall Taman Anggrek which is one of the biggest shopping centre at the west side of Jakarta.

Now according to my assessment, there are very little value in such ’self cooked’ meal because it cost almost the same as one that has a proper chef cooking it for you but I would have a different opinion of it if it were to cost the same as a fastfood meal and it is infact being sold in Jakarta for only around Rp 50,000(SGD$7).

I can’t resist eating Pepper Lunch for the first time for only a fraction of what it would cost me otherwise in Singapore. When we were making our orders, I had such big grin on my face that the cashier must be thinking that I’m interested in her :p

Hamburger Steak: 7.25/10 ★★★★★★★¼☆☆ 

Well after finished eating it, I had the crazy thought that if only I can eat this 2 times everyday for the next few days then I would had recouped my Jetstar ticket in value :) )

We had the Curry Beef and Hambuger Steak. Both set didn’t tasted too badly. The meat was well marinated and though I quite like it, it’s not something that I would be happy parting $16++ for in Singapore.

Price: SGD$7-8 per set

Recommendation: Hamburger Steak meal

Conclusion: The beef were well marinated and were full of flavour. Other than watching your own food being cooked, I can’t see any more value in this than one that has a proper chef cooking for you.

Likes: Beef were well marinated.

Dislikes: Oil flying all over the place when it’s sitting infront of me.
