Ate here on a wednesday lunch. Place was packed considering its a weekday. They only allow you to order if a table is available. There is a queue outside the resto prior you can order. It's pay as you order. Water is self service. You can use your Zap card here by just providing your number to the cashier.

I ordered their peppered chicken in regular size. It was ok. Service overall was unexpectedly good considering the servers are always in a hurry. Although our order took some time before it was served. The smell of the food also sticked to my hair and clothes. Also, the resto's environment was a bit hot.

Lucnch was pipping hot and delish!!!

Nothing could go wrong with Pepper Lunch!

127860 Chicken Pepper Lunch - what I love in general about their food is that it's served fresh and pipping hot! What i usually do upon serving is let it sit for a while pour a dash of both the honey brown sauce and garlic soy sauce to let it sizzle and stick to the hot plate. After a few seconds I incorporate thoroughly the rice, the scoop of butter (i think?!) corn, spring onion, meat, and put a dash of pepper. With I am able to add a chewy/crunchy texture. (It's sort of trying to achieve the "tutong" texture to the rice.

Overall, food is good! Serving time is kinda of long because it's lunch break! Overall this is 127775127775127775127775.

Just a 128221, if you want to eat here better cone in a bit earlier than 12 as most of the time there is a queue outside. I like their system that you can order pay, then be seated. If the tables are full, they let you fall in line first...

Pepper Lunch is our go-to place when we're looking for a way to satisfy our hunger. We have tried their Beef Pepper Rice, Teriyaki Beef Pepper Rice with Egg and Beef Yakiniku with Egg. So far everything has been tasty. Not too salty or spicy. You just have to be careful as the sizzling plate can be really hot and you have to flip your meat so that it would be equally cooked. Usually, the place has long lines on lunch or dinner so be sure to be early. This is one place I always go back to, everytime!

I like food that is served hot... most of the time anyways. I gave it 4-stars because the crew are courteous. The dining area can be a bit cramped so I suggest eat-and-run ro give space for other customers.

Pepper lunch for dinner. The salmon pepper steak looked interesting and raw, i ordered this for P265. I'm not fond of my salmon cooked, i like it in cold forms - sushi, sashimi or cold and served with capers. Maybe if i swam with the bears, i could eat with them and hibernate the same way, too.

My friend and i ordered the P99 shake shake salad. Mine the kani and hers the seaweed. I guess if you ate this alone it would be filling enough because there are cold noodles in them. Though the salad is not tightly packed to give you enough room for the ingredients to mix.

We also ordered a slice of vanilla crepe cake, which was a little bit of a crude version of those mille crepe as the layer of each crepe was pretty thick. Still i enjoyed this.

There are consistent things from the last time i ate here:

1. The food is very hot when it arrives that even after cooking, you'll have to wait a while for it to cool lest you scald your tongue or the roof of your mouth. When this happens i end up swallowing my food instead of tasting it. Best to order your sides to eat first.

2. Be prepared to walk out of there smelling like smoke.

Last friday night, I met up with some of my college friends. We were not aware that there's a sale hence the number of people inside the mall and the long lines/waiting list in almost every restaurant! 128563 The only place with a shorter line was this. We were too hungry to look for another place so we just went here.

So while waiting in line, the server already got our orders. We paid (one friend paid for everything so we didn't bothered checking the total anymore) and went to our tables. Our salads, their orders arrived already but my order and my other friend's order (that's 2 orders of Beef Pepper Rice) were still not yet served. After 20mins, still waitinggg. So we asked. Apparently, it was not "ordered". AHHHH. So we ordered again. Good thing we didn't have to wait that long. Thank you!!!! 128563 We would be annoyed and irritated but since the servers were nice and apologetic, we were just okay with it. Good thing we had salad!!!

The Kani Salad was good. Generous dressing and kani! It was good! But I still prefer the Tuna version. 128513 I'm not a fan of eating too much rice but it's impossible not to eat when you're here. The "pepper rice" was good and flavorful. The beef was tender but would enjoy it even more if there wasn't that much fat. But still good. Mix everything together. The rice, corn, and meat! Best to add all the sauce. Not sure what they are but when mixed together, they make a reaaaallly goood taste!!! Even better when you add hot sauce! 128513128513128077🏼

Chicken Pepper Rice for lunch 10084️ I love the combination of pepper and corn mixed with their rice 128525 and the chicken bits ... It's good especially if you have braces, it's easy to eat. It's P205. There's an additional P50 to upsize the meal 128522

Patience is a must. The waiting line here is always long~ especially during lunch time coz it's Pepper Lunch! 128514

Missed this! Chicken pepper rice still remains to be my choice! Got the plus P66 combo - added miso soup and drinks to complete the meal. A little pricey but it was really worth it for something i missed a long time.

This Salmon & Mushroom Cream Pasta was really good but @399 128563 it's quite expensive considering this is more of a fast food chain...

It comes with 3 pcs of Salmon (yes I counted!) Shitake mushroom and a separate container of creamy white sauce and some grated Parmesan cheese...I like that the cream sauce was not too overpowering (no Umay factor at all) and they weren't stingy with the mushroom 128514 Pretty happy with the taste , not too thrilled with the price 128547128513

Chicken Pepper Rice and Beef Pepper Rice remains to be my favorite. These are still great and very filling. Garlic sauce is still tops and is an absolute necessity! You couldn't leave Pepper Lunch without putting on the garlic sauce. The price of P205 for each of these meals make me think twice though.

Beef Pepper Rice plus additional egg on the side. Yum yum! Food is good, as always. Beef is really soft and easy to chew, although serving is a bit small and I love the corn with pepper.
The thing with sizzling food is that when it is served to you, it's really hot, it was mistake for me, because I was reallh hungry that time, and instead of cookinv my food and letting it cool down a bit, I would rather just eat it straight and dig in. I also didn't like that some your rice get really burnt because of not mixing it constantly.
Also, I don't like the smell of it that sticks to your shirt for the whole day just because of that meal.

My officemates wanted to have lunch out earlier at Pepper Lunch. I've always been a fan of Pepper Lunch 128522 Every time we go to greenbelt 5, lagi talagang mahaba yung pila dito. Same pa din kanina pero worth it naman 128077

When I think of Pepper Lunch, I always think of the pepper and corn on top of the rice plus yung sauce!!128525128525

I used to order Beef Pepper rice but this time, I ordered Beef Teriyaki with egg just to try something else 128522 I like the feeling of turning around the meat to cook the other side of it. I think it's kind of the same with beef pepper rice. Actually, before I put the "TERIYAKI SAUCE", my officemate beside me poured my sauce on his beef pepper rice. Akala niya sa kanya yun128561 so I didn't really get to taste Beef Teriyaki. 128557 I just put the 2 other sauce/s on the table. It was fine but I bet it would've been better if I put on the teriyaki sauce 128553128517

Good service 128077 Good Food 128077 Medyo Pricy nga lang pero it's worth it for me 128522

Next time I'll try salmon. 128522

What's Pinoy lechon without the crispy skin? Disappointingly, Pepper Lunch missed this important detail in its latest addition, Lechon Pepper Rice.

It's pretty hard to understand this oversight considering the dish is bannered under its Pinoy Fiesta offerings (the other new dish is the Sisig Pepper Rice). In lieu of the crispy skin, we instead get chicharon to provide the crunch, but personally, I find it an unsatisfying cop-out.

The meat is bland and the liver sauce provided is not to my taste. If you find yourself in the same predicament, I suggest dousing the dish with a generous serving of the honey brown sauce, which seemed a better match. That sauce, along with the pepper rice, saved this dish for me big time. I like Pepper Lunch but will never order this dish again. 128513

Why other people should visit Pepper Lunch Greenbelt 5:
Ambience was awesome
Food was great
Crew was nice
Behind me is a great view
Few people eat here (Private people would really love it here)

What I didn't like:
Flying fly while eating. Crew were shy to kill it while customer is eating. They don't know that letting the insect fly around annoys the customer even more
