Being from Southeast Asia, I'm familiar with the concept of rice dishes served on sizzling hot plates. Places like Pepper Lunch takes that concept to a whole new delicious level. On a visit to the food court at a mall, I visited my first Pepper Lunch and had the Teriyaki Beef Pepper Rice with Egg. It's a tasty blend of Japanese and Philippine fast food. You order, go sit down, they bring over the hot dish, you mix it up while it's still sizzling, then you customize the dish with the various condiments available at your table. Add some great lunchtime conversation with your friends, and you're all set.
