Choriburger @ The Powerplant Mall.

A day before Valentine's day, I went out to watch a movie by myself as my planned date with 2 of my girlfriends got cancelled just last night leaving me with a very conditioned mind to go out on a Saturday to watch a movie and grab a choriburger at the tent. After my movie, I headed straight out to the tent for my choriburger craving, had it to go, hailed a cab and went home.

I was thinking of having at least 30 minutes of walk inside the mall but no can do. I cannot stand all the couples and families watching movies, eating, walking together while I am by my lonesome self.

Forget that. That's for my personal blog.

We're here for the food and that food for today is Boracay's famous Choriburger being served at the Powerplant Tent.

The actual food

Can I just apologize for my photo? I am really saving up for the G10/G11 camera (and this is a call for shameless begging, any amount is greatly appreciated--just click on the donate button at the upper part of my blog). Anyway, I don't know if it's just me but I didn't quite enjoy it. For 70 pesos it was decent enough but not like how the choriburger tastes in Boracay.

I texted my friend and her conclusion was maybe because the choriburger here is too "clean". I joked that maybe it lacked the "beach water and sand" in Boracay that's why it tastes different. Haha!

If you want to grab yourself one, drop by at the Powerplant Tent, the choriburger is just outside the entrance. It's for 70 pesos. They also have bottled drinks, tables and chairs while waiting. Oh, this is only for this weekend February 13-14.

Pepper Lunch: Beef Teriyaki

Since this new addition to the Pepper Lunch menu has been introduced, I have been dying to give it a try because 1.) I LOVE PEPPER LUNCH and 2.) I LOVE BEEF TERIYAKI and knowing I love each individually it would be logical to say that I MIGHT love both combined.


I had this for lunch about two days before Christmas, I enjoyed every spoonful that I put into my mouth. PLUS, this is the meal that gave me my FREE PEPPER MEAL the next month.

Beef Terriyaki

I got a free pepper meal just by doing what I always do when I eat there... sign the comment card. :) I think I have mentioned about this here or in my other blog but anyway, back to Beef Teriyaki... The terriyaki sauce is separated from the beef, there's still the sizzling plate with the beef slices and sunny side up egg and a separate bowl for the rice. It costs a little less than P400 ($6-$8) and is deliciously worth it! Or am I just being biased because I love PL? Anyway, I am so happy that I get to introduce this establishment to a lot of people already... my cousins, my friends and even fellow bloggers who have read about Pepper Lunch on my blogs. As far as I know, you guys love it too!

As part of my new year's resolution, I promise to give other PL food a try (other than my usual orders of Beef Pepper Rice, Curry Beef Rice, and Beef Terriyaki). Yes, I prefer beef.

Any suggestions? :)
