For this review, I opted for the chicken set since I'm not a fan of red meat.
The chicken thigh pieces were tender and juicy with the combination of the sweetened soy sauce. It came lightly seasoned with black pepper and was easy to grill on the hot plate. The sauce was pretty good. There was a honeyed sweetness with a bit of a fruity tang. Wasn't too sweet or tangy and hit the nice balance this time.
Paired with some shredded chinese cabbage, french beans, corn and a sunny side egg, you get a fairly healthy meal to go with hot steaming Japanese white rice. Overall, this dish is nice choice if you're in the mood for teriyaki.
Teriyaki Chicken with Egg Set comes with a bowl of rice and the Teriyaki sauce

Sides consists of miso soup, salad and mashed potatoes. Lettuce, julienned carrots and cubed chicken made up the salad which is a great appetizer to the meaty dishes. On the contrary, the mashed potatoes was a let down as it was too soft, just like eating some blended baby food.
Good ones should have the waxy texture if made from fresh boiled potatoes. But I believe this version was made from the instant mashed potatoes which came in form of flakes or granules, so you would probably give this a miss as it was not up to mark at all.
Mango Ice Cream - RM4.80
Last but not least, I ended my meal with Mango Ice-cream as dessert for the day. The vanilla ice cream was neither smooth nor creamy either. Unfortunately it had this kind of grainy, sandy textured to it. Also lacking was the dairy flavour notes in the ice cream, so I was quite disappointed with the desserts offerings.
All in all, although there were some misses along with the hits, Pepper Lunch Restaurant is a place I will definitely try out again. There were a few other dishes on the menu that sounded promising - Salmon & Chicken and Chicken & BBQ Beef Yakiniku, both Combo Deluxe which are definitely valued for money with the ongoing promotion now.
