Dinner at Pepper Lunch SM Megamall

The store.
Pepper Lunch is a "fast-steak" or let's say "do it yourself" restaurant concept  that originated in Japan since 1994.  It was created by a Japanese chef and inventor, Mr. Kunio Ichinose, who always wanted to serve quality, fast food without the need to train a chef for years.

I've got curious the first time I've heard about this "dinakdakan" 'coz in tagalog "dinakdakan" means yelling or sermon.  But when I've gone to Ilocos that's the time I've realized that dinakdakan there is a native dish.  It's the counter part of "sisig" here in Manila. 

Dinakdakan's recipe is a grilled pig's part (e.g. ear, tongue or liver) blended with pig's brain or mayonnaise.

Nuffamily Day

Last Saturday, together with my sister and nephews, we went to the Fort, our meeting place for the much awaited event hosted by Nuffnang, the Nuffamily Day.  While waiting for others to come, we took pictures of the place and people.  There was an event there hosted by Canon, I think for photography.
