It’s a passable dish: the beef is properly minced and is a balanced mix of fat and lean. However, I will reserve judgement till I try out the competition; in which case, a trip to Pepper Lunch will soon be necessary.
Looks intriguing, doesn’t it? If you look at it very closely, you’ll see that this menu item’s name is “Salad Hamburg”. It’s essentially a hamburger patty cooked on a griddle and topped with tomatoes, shredded cabbage, and Japanese mayonnaise. I was at Sizzling Pepper Steak at the TriNoMa when I saw this particular dish and, while I was intrigued by it, I opted for something simpler.
This is the Demiglace Hamburg, a beef patty that the diner cooks on a griddle. A gravy boat of beefy demiglace comes along for the ride, together with sesame-infused moyashi (mung bean sprouts), buttered carrots, and green beans.
