When people think of eating steak, it’s associated with a delicious, high-quality, yet expensive dish that’s often reserved for special occasions. However, Pepper Lunch decided to take this concept of steak and turn it into a more affordable, hearty meal that people could order whenever they wanted.
Pepper Lunch began in 1990 as the brainchild of Kunio Ichinoso, a first-class chef who dreamed of it as a way for people to enjoy high-quality food even without a chef’s preparations. He presented the concept in 1994 at the Hotel & Restaurant Exhibition in Tokyo, then opened the first Pepper Lunch branch at Ofuna, Kanagawa.
The concept of enjoying and preparing one’s meal at their own table was such a big hit that more Pepper Lunch branches opened all over Japan. Because of its remarkable growth, Pepper Lunch received a trophy for New Business Development from Japan Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Department on June 2005. This Japanese steak concept spread to the rest of Asia, with the first Philippine branch opening in Rockwell in 2008. Now there are over twenty branches in the country!

Despite all these options, pescatarians need not fret as one of Pepper Lunch’s other bestsellers is the Salmon Pepper Rice.

Add miso soup, or kani salad to enjoy a Japanese feast – and the best part is all these orders are available to prep DIY at their branches, or cooked and ready to eat if you get them delivered.
