The earthquake that shook some parts of Visayas and Mindanao last Monday caused us to search some food to ingest in order to take away our nervousness. Not really. I honestly didn't feel the earthquake, because I was riding a jeepney when it happened. Papa was here in Cebu on that day, so we went to Ayala to have another pig out day. Papa felt the earthquake, but I guess he just stayed calm. Anyway, let us just all pray for the victims in Negros, the epicenter of the earthquake. They have been hit badly, the footage of the damages, deaths, and casualties of the earthquake are alarming and sympathizing. Let us hope that the government will aid them. Let us pray for our safety.
On to the Sizzlin' Pepper Steak restaurant. By far, they have the best sizzling pepper steak in town. I could not even describe the taste in one word, considering that I only tasted their Gyuniku Beef Pepper Rice. It deserves all the adjectives of delicious - tasty, delectable, appetizing, sumptuous, mouthwatering well-seasoned, savory, flavorful, scrumptious, heavenly, etc. (see thesaurus hehe).
Here are some photos of their menu.
My brother was the only one who ate a meal, because Papa and I were finished eating before we met up. He ordered Gyuniku Beef Pepper Rice worth P250, which comes with an iced tea, and a Turtle Cheesecake worth P190, I suppose. I ordered my ever favorite Blueberry Cheesecake worth P180. Papa did not order anything because he was so full.
Gyuniku Beef Pepper Rice
As I have previously claimed, their Gyuniku Beef Pepper Rice is the most flavorful and malinamnam sizzling food I have ever tasted. We speculated that what made it so flavorful is the egg yolk. My brother even jokingly said that perhaps they put a drug in the egg yolk, due to its savory taste. Their blueberry cheesecake is also delicious, but it was not as heavenly. Perhaps the blueberry cheesecake was heavenly, the gyuniku beef pepper rice just blew me away. However, we could not determine the taste of their turtle cheesecake. The turtle cheesecake is drizzled with caramel and topped with thinly sliced almonds and powdered cocoa, but my brother felt like he was eating a lotion and a feed. Moreover, their waiters and waitresses are very friendly and assisting. The downer in the restaurant is that their desserts are not always available. The only available dessert on that day was the Turtle Cheesecake and the Blueberry Cheesecake.
At first, I thought that this restaurant is not budget-friendly, especially for students, but after tasting the Gyuniku beef pepper rice, the price is worth it all. I would definitively go back and eat a gyuniku beef pepper rice for myself.
Inside the restaurant. Hurray for purposeful exhausts!
Sorry for the blurry photos. Still using my camera phone. Boo. I need a new camera.
