It’s the Christmas Morning After Today on Pepper Eats: Breakfast, Confit, and Cupcakes

March 7, 2019

Oroshi Katsu (Rosu) from Yabu (PHP 390)

Processed with VSCOcam

Location: Ground Level, SM Southmall

Addi says: “As usual the pork was tender and really flavorful. At first I was baffled at how everything unique about this dish was acidic–the mashed radish, the grapefruit, and the ponzu sauce; add to that the staple katsu dip. It was sour on sour, but after just a few bites I found myself really enjoying the meal.”

Rating: 8.5/10

Fresh Corned Beef with Eggs, Sauerkraut and Garlic Rice at Breakfast at Antonio’s (PHP 400)

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Location: Barangay Neogan, Tagaytay

Adee says: “This meal makes me wish I lived in Tagaytay. The corned beef was quite tender and had the right saltiness to it. The eggs were cooked the way I liked, and the memory of their sauerkraut still lingers in my mind from time to time.”

Rating: 9/10

Duck Confit Pappardelle from Bizu Patisserie (PHP 295)


Location: Robinsons Magnolia

Diana says: “The dish was perfectly seasoned and wasn’t too oily. The ratio of duck to pasta as well as the portion was spot on.”

Rating: 9/10

Le Lillois Sandwich from Paris Delice (PHP 155)

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

Location: Makati Avenue cor Juno Street

Kat says: “Nothing fancy here, just a really good baguette, mayonnaise, bacon, chicken, and lettuce. And that’s all you really need sometimes, a straightforward, no-frills sandwich. ”

Rating: 7/10

Cupcakes by Gremlin (PHP 45 each, PHP 95 for the milkshake)


Location: Maginhawa, Quezon City

Lars says: “That’s a red velvet on the left and Hershey’s, blueberry, and Reese’s on the right. The mason jar cupmugthing has a pretty yummy vanilla milkshake inside. Those wooden forks, though, just make things entirely too complicated. Eat the cupcakes with your hands instead. Also, the vanilla milkshake was the bomb.”

Rating: 6.5/10 for the cupcakes, 8/10 for the milkshake

Sizzling Kansi (Sizzling Bulalo) + Batwan Gravy from Sarsa (PHP 350)


Location: G/F The Forum, Bonifacio Global City

Mikka says: “Flavor-wise this serving of kansi was pretty rich. Think of it as Filipino comfort food (that you’d usually drive far for) at a more accessible location. The meat was tender, the marrow was deadly, and the batwan gravy added a nice, tangy touch.”

Rating: 9/10

Cheeseburger from Joe’s Meatshack


Location: Kapitolyo, Pasig City

Nico says: “It took a whole stack of tissues to take down this bad boy. But it was worth the mess. There are times in your life when a good burger just makes everything all right in the world, and this is one of them.”

Rating: 8/10

Hokkaido Cheese Cream Soup Spaghetti with Scallop, Corn, Bacon, and Potato from Yomenya Goemon (PHP 345)


Location: 2/F, Greenbelt 3, Makati

Serna says: “The name is a mouthful, just like the dish it represents. Granted, it reminds me of that fatal soup spaghetti dish those high school girls ate in one violent “Battle Royale” scene, but it’s classic comfort food done right. Creamy, tasty, and loaded with carbs and all the other stuff that’s bad for you, this is. The only thing I’d change about it would be to nix the sliced kani sticks that tasted weird with the pasta (and perhaps add a bit more soup).”

Rating: 8/10

    Ate at Shakey’s mainly because of a birthday party I had to attend, other than that it’s pretty much (Christmas) leftover week at the household. I’m intrigued about the Sizzling Kansi. What is batwan? Some sort of fruit?
