Recently, you may have heard the buzz around the newly opened Pepper Lunch.
The second lower mainland Pepper Lunch outlet opened last week on Cambie Street, and the buzz meets, or should I say ‘meats’, expectations. The DIY counter service eatery has 200+ outlets in Asia and the concept seems to have gained a foothold here in Vancouver.
Like any quick serve restaurants you order from the counter from a menu grouped into a protein with pasta or a protein with rice. Prices range from under $10 to the higher-end meats at $20+. Choose from Kobe Beef, Filet Mignon, Angus Steak, Chicken, Salmon, and more, then Pepper Lunch breaks from the norm to be more than just a simple fast-food place. Your meal is presented to you on the patented Pepper Lunch iron plate. Sizzling hot, the plate is heated up to 260 celsius while you grill your meat, or fish at the table until your desired level of doneness. Then as the plate cools to a still hot 80 degrees, it keeps your meal tender and juicy to leisurely enjoy your Pepper Lunch.
We enjoyed the meal enough to visit twice in the opening week to try different combinations and look forward to checking out more of the menu.
Pepper Lunch is located at 2323 Cambie Street in Vancouver and Unit 150 – 5951 No 3 Road in Richmond.
