Simon Says: This is something similar to what I'll be going to do for the next 20 days or so. For mine, MY FM is the organizer.
After having teh halia and paru goreng for tea, I headed down to Pavilion KL from 1 Utama. I am meeting Nigel in Pepper Lunch for dinner because he'll be helping me to shoot my Rihanna impersonation video that night.
The first time I tried Pepper Lunch was in Singapore early last year because at that time there's no outlet in Malaysia yet. As Jeroen commented in the post, they are opening in KL soon. Yes, he's right. They opened their first Malaysian outlet in Pavilion KL, which don't surprise me. Seeing food chains from Singapore opening all their first outlet there such as Food Republic, Ministry of Food, Dainti Hill and etc.
The outlet here in Pavilion KL is bigger than the outlet I went to in Singapore. Yes, we got the luxury of space here, so don't envy us Singaporean. LOL. Just kidding. Ahem. Let's get back to the main topic.
Well, one thing I don't envy being a Malaysian is that our spending power is low comparing to our friends from across the Causeway. While it cost only SGD 9.90 for a Weekday Lunch Star Deal set of Pepper Steak that comes with rice and a soda, it cost RM 30.80 for a Pepper Steak and rice here in Malaysia. You have to top up RM 2.50 for a soup or a soda. Even if converted back to Malaysian Ringgit, it's still cheaper to eat in Singapore. If one is earning Sing Dollar then it's even more affordable. Sigh.
Spread the butter evenly on the Hamburger.
Instead of the normal garlic or honey sauce, I was advised by the staff there to pour the French Onion sauce. I call it that because it tasted damn like French Onion soup, only thicker and saltier.
Taste wise, it's not too bad but it still can't beat Pepper Steak that I had in Singapore. Didn't know what hamburger can go so well with rice. It must be the sauce. It's quite fulfilling too with the fried egg, bean sprout and corn as the side. Wish that they will come out for set lunch that is much more affordable. If not, I think they won't last very long in Malaysia.
Even though it's not what I was expecting as the one that I've eaten in Singapore but with the eating with a company of fun loving friends more than cover the flaw. Thanks David, Hsu Jen, Kel Li, and Nigel for helping me making the Rihanna video.
