Pepperlunch deals

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Pepperlunch great deals 
 


Pepperlunch is located at Setia Kenangan II (next to Regent Square), Kiulap
 


Ready for a sizzling meal?
 

Filterworks experiencing Sungkai at Pepperlunch

 

My first experience of Pepperlunch was back in Kuala Lumpur back in 2014. It was located a food court joint of a shopping mall and I was quite impressed with the food. I didn’t realise it was a franchise until it came to Brunei last December.

Now Pepperlunch has become a household name among Bruneians and during the Ramadhan period, they are running a special gimmick for the Pepperlunch diners. Now you can enjoy one dish/meal for free when you buy 2 dishes of the menu. On top of that, they will also give you a bonus side dish and drink. Ain’t that a great deal?

Even the lunch take away, they have the same deal where you buy two and get one free. The responses have been pretty good ever since they ran the promotion and you can say that it’s really value for money.

I had my favourite dish – Premium Beef with Hamburg while my friend, Awfa, loved the Cheesy Omelette with Curry Sauce.

To see more of the choices they, you can see Thanis post on his blog entry or you can also follow Pepperlunch Brunei Facebook Page for updates. I’m definitely making another trip to Pepperlunch because the quality is just as consistent as in KL and also during my recent trip to Jakarta. Keep it up!!

Wayback Burgers is in town 
 


Juffrydin with his family enjoying dinner at Wayback Burgers last night
 


It was pretty busy behind the counter in preparation for the huge crowd in the coming weeks or so
 

Wayback Burgers, an international franchise is now in Brunei with their grand opening scheduled to take place on 21st May 2016. Days prior to the official opening, members of the media and social media influencers such as @bruneifoodies were treated to a Wayback’s Snack-Review-Sneak-Preview session at their Setia Kenangan II outlet.

They were introduced to a brief introduction of Wayback Burgers by U.S. Wayback Burgers representative Mark Biccum, Director Of Training, Jake Wayback Burgers LLC and Brunei Wayback Burgers representative, John Burgos, Managing Director, JonRidge(B) Sdn Bhd, followed by a treat to some of Wayback’s signature products prepared for the occasion.


Wayback Burgers is a U.S. franchise serving burgers to Americans for more than twenty years, operating in 26 states with more than 100 locations nationally and internationally in Argentina. Wayback Burgers, through its executed master franchise agreements, plans to open in 33 countries which include the Middle East, Northern Africa, Argentina, Pakistan, Canada, India and Brunei.

The good news is that Brunei is the first in ASEAN to have the franchise in the region. Awesome, huh? Furthermore, the Brunei franchise is hoping to expand its market outside Brunei. The second outlet has already been announced at Giant Rimba while the third one will be known to the public soon. I also liked the idea that Wayback Burgers Brunei has a training centre where staff and the newer ones can undergo training. The training centre is still undergoing renovation but I like the idea of the partners where they are already thinking ahead.

I met the man behind JonRidge (B) Sdn Bhd, the chairman of the company. A very humble local guy who wants to help to give back to the economy by creating employment and also bring more revenue to the economy by expanding locally and internationally. He also owns other companies and this is the first time experience in handling F&B franchise. I truly admire his vision as an entrepreneur and thank you, Juffrydin, for your hospitality last night.

I also would like to thank Jon Burgos for sponsoring some vouchers for the winners of my Snapchat competition last night. I was amazed by the responses I had on Snapchat through the quiz I had. It looks like Snapchat could be the next in-thing for future quizzes apart from the already routined Instagram. Congratulations to @aimananas and @ayeshah on Snapchat for guessing the right answer – 9 layers of patties on the Triple Triple 😀

Prior to Wayback Burger’s official opening this coming Saturday, the restaurant has already received birthday dinner reservations. The business is already in operation so you can head now to their first outlet.

For more information on Wayback Burgers, interested parties can follow them on their instagram; @WaybackburgersBrunei and their hashtag #waybackburgersBrunei

 


The star of the night – BURGERSSSSS….
 


The buns have a distinctive colour and texture as compared to others and the patties are something to look forward to
 


For hot dog lovers, what are you waiting for. Do you also realise the newspaper type they use in their food presentation. Not to worry, it’s not the usual newspaper texture you feel everyday. It feels like a plastic wrapper but more unique.
 


Mark Biccum, Director Of Training, U.S. Wayback Burgers representative, is in town for intensive training for the local associates. He also shared the different types of burgers that were being displayed for the media.
 


I had more than 20 entries on Snapchat and one of the first winner was @aimananas who happened to be around the area when he answered the quiz.
 


Definitely the highlight of the night – The Triple Triple – 9 patties with 9 slices of American Cheese, Lettuce and Tomato. Don’t worry, Sandy. You’re also the highlight :p Btw, no one has accepted the challenge yet to finish off a triple triple solo.

The Belait Fair 2016 has been ongoing for the few weeks and it continues until the 5th June (before fasting month kicks off). It is in collaboration with the grassroots community, with 68 groups of vendors taking part, two of them from the Village Consultative Councils (MPKs) of Kg Mumong and Kg Lorong 3 in aim to promote local products especially this under the One Village, One Product (OVOP) initiative.

Besides food products, the vendors are also selling goods ranging from electrical appliances to fashion products. Another section of booths is dedicated to exhibiting cats, reptiles and rare birds.

So far they had a bicycle expedition during the opening two weeks ago and also the Tamiya racing, a four-wheel drive car show, cooking contest, speedboat race and car show organised by NBT (Brunei) Sdn Bhd scheduled during the Belait Fair 2016.

Some 152 vendor spots have been allocated at three areas connected centrally at the roundabout where Jalan Panglima, Jalan Tengah and Jalan Sungai meet in Kuala Belait.

Billy Lim Soon Sin was in town for a few days to conduct a special training/workshop for IA Salon. He is quite popular in the hair industry, being known as the Malaysia’s Top Hair Director and also a consultant in terms of advising businesses for the hair salons in the region. He has been in the hair styling industry for three decades and Cecilia Lee, IA Salon Artistic Directress, was so overwhelmed in having his presence in the Sultanate because it’s never easy to catch him for appointments due to his busy schedules.

For Billy, his passion is also to help others in the hair industry to grow collectively. He strongly believe that everyone have to work hard not to only improve oneself but moreover, to emphasize professionalism on and off work. Billy shared that he is still in the learning stage.

During his short visit, the trained 11 hair stylists of IA Salon and they are all now MHA certified under Billy’s guidance. MHA stands for Malaysia Hair Association. He provided consultation and techniques on haircut hair colouring, scalp and hair treatment.

He was recently on the national radio to promote the awareness and the responses have been positive. Meeting him in person was an honour and you are such a down to earth person, Billy. All the best in your vision and I hope many salons will benefit with your vision. Keep it up!!!

Epson making a mark

Worldwide, Epson has made a mark and it continues to provide an extensive line-up of easy-to-use printers and it’s no surprise the Epson printers are doing quite well in the Brunei market. They provide multifunction photo printers, business printers and now they are known for their ink tank printers. Epson’s latest office inkjet printers feature the newly developed PrecisionCore print heads which boast a significantly large number of nozzles in each row, resulting in high-speed, high-quality printing.

In the projector line, Epson has been in the No.1 Worldwide Projector Market leader for the past 13 years. It employs the 3LCD technology which allows projectors to accurately project images that are bright, natural and easy on the eyes. It can be used for education, business and even at homes.

Today Concepts Computer proudly unveiled a new signage of Epson, a rolling type gimmick to catch the attention of the eyes of the public. Unveiling the Epson signage were Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Computer, Alice Chan, Finance Controller of Concepts Group of Companies, Pao Jia Wan, Business Development Executive of Concepts Group of Companies, Eric Tang, Sales Manager, Epson Malaysia with the associates of Concepts Computer.

Pepper your taste

The Pepper Rice beef
 

A new franchise in town. It has taken Brunei by storm. When anything new opens in Brunei, there’s always a huge interest especially when it comes to franchise and strong brands. Pepper Lunch is one of those brand and it’s originated from Japan. For your info, this is the 211th outlet in Asia Pacific region and the Brunei franchisee plans to open another one in the near future.

The soft opening happened last weekend and it was no surprised that it was a busy weekend and even this week as many thronged to taste the new flavour in town.

In town was Christopher Tan, Manager of Franchise Department for Pepper Lunch Management Division, Suntory Food & Beverage International (based in Singapore). He was in the Sultanate to make sure the outlet opened smoothly and trained the local staff in order to reach the quality required as a Pepper Lunch franchisee.

Howard Hii, Managing Director of Universal Food & Beverage (Brunei) and also the master franchisee for Pepper Lunch (Brunei) was excited with the new adventure in the F&B business. He had undergone intensive training to learn the ropes of running and managing the outlet as well as learning the SOPs of Pepper Lunch. His biggest challenge was working in one of the outlets in Singapore where it served 400 pax in a day during his training period recently. Of course, he is a big fan of Pepper Lunch and I could tell the passion and dedication from him to bring the franchise to Brunei.

I had my first taste of Pepper Lunch last year with Ciara and her friends at One Utama food court area (Kuala Lumpur) and I was already impressed then. My favourite dishes so far are the Cheesy Omelette and my combo of Premium Beef and Hamburg with the Japanese curry sauce. The signature dish is definitely the Pepper Rice (beef, chicken and salmon to name a few).

For your information, this is a sizzling concept where you have to cook the meat by stirring and mixing on the sizzling plate while it’s still…. well, sizzling until the meat is cooked and ready for consumption. This is Do-It-Yourself concept and it won’t take that long actually.

The first outlet is located at the new area just next to Regent Square, Kiulap. The building is at Setia Kenangan 2 (don’t get confused with the original Setia Kenangan building). It opens from 10am to 10pm daily. You can follow them on Pepper Lunch Brunei Facebook Page or instagram @pepperlunchbn for more updates.
