The Lower Mainland has welcomed Pepper Lunch with open arms and stomachs.
The fast-casual Japanese restaurant concept known for its hot iron skillets will open the doors to its third Canadian location in Metro Vancouver next week – The second in Richmond; and it will be their largest single-level Canadian location yet.
Pepper Lunch’s new location will feature a bright and airy interior with high ceilings and a minimalist palette of black, white, and warm woods. The 60-seat room will offer eat-in and take-out dishes as well as space for large parties and the same sizzling meat, seafood, and vegetarian dishes available at its No. 3 Road Richmond and Cambie Street locations. These include Pepper Lunch’s signature beef pepper rice, sliced Angus steak, and Kobe burger steak, as well as premium plates like wagyu beef pepper rice and vegetarian-friendly options such as the recently introduced veggie mushroom burger.
Pepper Lunch on McClelland Road will serve lunch and dinner daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. A selection of Japanese and Canadian beers will be available beginning this fall.
All Pepper Lunch dishes are served on an electromagnetic teppan or iron plate, which reaches 260 degrees Celsius in 70 seconds. Guests grill the seasoned beef to their desired preferences while seated, creating customizable and interactive dining experiences that result in flavourful, sizzling hot meals.
A grand opening event is scheduled for May 18, 2017, from 9 am to 12 pm. From 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on this date, a special (Beef Short Ribs with Corn, Green Beans, Carrots and a bowl of rice – CAB (Certified Angus Beef) will be available to guests.
