The Sizzlin' Pepper Steak is Perfect for A Rainy Friday Night

It has been raining for weeks and that means traffic too! The image of the streets during the rush hour seem like a battlefield and if you are unlucky, you can end up in a car coma for hours. I thought that my daily ordeal would end because it was Friday afternoon...I was ready to shout TGIF heading to the MRT when I saw the line and it was only around 5pm. The guard told me that there was a delay that's why they won't let people in. I got stressed out because I had a family dinner that time and I might not make it on time so I took chance on the FX station at SM Megamall. I waited there for more than 30 minutes before I got a ride and the rain kept on pouring hard which slowed down the FX. I paid more taking a different route so I can just take a ride right away. I was hungry so I drank my favorite strawberry banana fruit shake from FRUIT MAGIC while waiting for my family who I thought would arrive ahead of me since they are just near Trinoma Mall. 

We ate at Sizzlin Pepper Steak which is located near Medical City, 2nd Floor of Trinoma Mall. There is a waiting area outside and inside with a TV ad so you can check out the K-Pop girls dancing...(K stands for Kikay...lol)

I ordered Beef Pepper Rice which is worth P165 and that included buttered vegetables in the middle and teriyaki sauce. My mom ordered Beef Curry Pepper Rice which is worth P260. It looks the same and the only difference is the curry...so does that mean the curry is worth more or less 100 bucks?




There is a paper cover that would protect you from getting splashes of sauce because the plate is sizzling hot! You need to put the sauce whether you choose teriyaki or gravy. The problem was they did not serve the sauce together with the plates. We need to wait for the sauce to be served. Make sure to turn the meat because it is not that cooked well and the hot plate would evenly cook it. After the meat is done, all you have to do is mix everything: the rice, meat and vegetables (very little). The food is good and would certainly satisfy those who have a huge appetite. I shared my order with my kid and I was still full. 


The place was nice and there is a sign there that says MOVE which means that a waiter would approach you if you put that sign. If you change it to STOP it means that you don't need their service.
There is a small NO SMOKING sign too...tell that to the sizzling plates coz they are causing smoke everywhere...LOL. The smoke exhaust was not that working I think because there were still smoke after we got our orders.


My overall experience at Sizzlin Pepper Steak is average. There are dishes that are affordable. The place is comfortable. The service is quite slow. The cold weather and rain would surely make anyone hungry so eating there would be quite a treat for you.

  1. My family loves eating at Sizzlin Pepper in Trinoma during weekends. You should go there early lunch or dinner because the place gets packed

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…

Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce

Since Beef are more expensive than Pork, I end up buying Pork Steak rather than Beef Steak for lunch. I am going to share this easy recipe that both kids and adults would love called "Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce". There are two ways of preparing this dish: 
First: You can bread the pork steak, fry it and then cook the sauce separately before smothering them on the fried pork steak. 
Second: I chose this version because my kid have a hard time chewing meat so I need to make sure that the pork is really tender. Here is my simple recipe: 

Ingredients: 
1/2 kilo of Pork Steak (marinated in calamansi, soy sauce and pepper)
2 large onions (sliced thinly)
Instant Gravy (dissolved in water)
Pork drippings from the boiled pork
1 tablespoon butter

Procedure:

1. Add 1 cup of water on the marinated Pork Steak, then boil it for approximately 30 minutes or until the pork is tender. Make sure to check it from time to time to avoid the meat from getting dried up. Add water if needed.

2. Remo…
