Indonesian Foodblogger (idfb) held a restaurant review at the newly open outlet, Pepper Lunch Bintaro Xchange. This was the second review programme held by Pepper Lunch and idfb. I couldn't take part on the first one because of some reason, so I enrolled myself. Together with 20 bloggers who took part in Pepper Lunch resto review, I experienced myself to taste a huge portion of premium steak served on a hot plate, The Giant.

Honey brown sauce (Amakuchi), Garlic soy sauce (Karakuchi), salt and black pepper are always ready on every table. You can add the sauce of your choice to your dish. Those sauces also work well with the hot steak and they make the sizzling hot steak more appetizing. Yummy ! Pepper Lunch's staffs prepare the black pepper every morning and they don't use the whole peppercorn. They only use the most fragrant part which is the outer shell.
"Caution HOT !". Every dish is served over a Teppan. Teppan is metal griddle/plate used in teppanyaki style of Japanese cuisine. This iron plate is part of the successful formula of Pepper Lunch. Before being used, the teppan will be heated up to 260 Celcius degrees in 70 seconds. The plate keeps the temperature approximately at 80 Celcius degrees for 20 minutes. This means your steak will stay hot until last bite.

Resto Review : Sushi Matsu, BSD

Perasaan takut, penasaran dan juga antusias campur jadi satu. Itulah yang saya rasakan ketika berangkat untuk food tasting di Sushi Matsu Restaurant. Saat menyetujui untuk ikut review di Sushi Matsu pun, saya tidak tahu secara spesifik apa yang akan saya makan. Yang saya ingat, saya pernah memesan sushi roll dan itu pun harus saya habiskan sendiri karena suami dan anak saya tidak mau mencobanya. Tapi saat itu yang saya pesan bukan sushi dengan ikan mentah, karena saya masih belum yakin apa saya akan menikmati sushi dengan ikan mentah.
Sushi Matsu adalah restoran yang menyediakan masakan Jepang mulai dari sushi dan nigiri, sashimi, agemono, yakimono, gohanmono, menrui dan miso soup. Pokoknya lengkap !! Restoran ini baru dibuka tanggal 18 Mei 2014 tempatnya di seberang Pasar Modern BSD persis. Di ruko 2 lantai ini, cukup untuk menampung 66 orang. Jadi kalau anda mencari tempat untuk mengadakan acara sambil makan makanan Jepang, resto ini bisa jadi pilihan.

Sebenarnya saya tidak bisa banyak cerita, karena pengetahuan saya tentang makanan Jepang itu bisa dikatakan mendekati nol ! Saya hanya bisa memberikan rekomendasi bahwa sushi di sini enak dan harganya pun terjangkau, tetapi tetap disajikan dengan bahan-bahan berkualitas. 

Di sana, para blogger ditawarkan untuk mencicipi beberapa menu yang ada di Sushi Matsu. Okay... saya mulai sedikit panik karena satu per satu makanan bermunculan di meja. Dari sekian banyak makanan, yang saya kenal hanya Takoyaki !! =)) 

Yuk intip beberapa menu andalan dari Sushi Matsu. Buat yang suka sushi, pasti ngiler. Ada beberapa makanan yang saya suka dan cocok di lidah saya, seperti Volcanoes, Tekka, Tamago, Inari Kanimayo, Spicy Crunchy Tempura, Tuna Salad dan Hokkaido.
