It was one cloudy Sunday when we were heading our way to have lunch at a noodle street food stall in Soi Sukhumvit 49 and we found out that there was no parking space at all along the street. An immediate notice of Peko, which is just a small house, with its lunch set advert board was spotted. Without hesitation due to hungriness, our car turned right in and here we were.

First thing we spotted is that the place is lovely decorated in country style. As we settled down, I noticed the surrounding carefully and OMG, there was no local at all but Japanese only. Ok, this must be a rather good one with local taste. Without fail, the meal was good enough indeed. However, often local people here might prefer strong taste while many Japanese dishes are somewhat lighter. This place too it might be soft in term of taste but I do like the overall balance though.

Most of dishes here are steak or beef based dishes. The owner of Peko is from Hokkaido and owns a cattle farm called "Ohira Ranch". Cattles at Ohira Ranch are crossbreed between Wagyu and Holstein. An excellent hybrid surely. Often Wagyu is too fatty and is not suitable for steak but undeniably wonderful for shabu shabu and sukiyaki, while Holstein is lean but packed with flavour of red meat. This crossbreed then gives both excellent flavour and tenderness.

During lunch time, they only serve lunch sets which were rather nice in fact. We had Burgersteak Set (6/10) and Beef Stew Set (6/10). Both sets came with a choice of bread or rice, salad of sesame or caesar dressing, and soft drink. Both burgersteak and stew were enjoyable. The stew was prepared with demi glace sauce base, so as the burgersteak (I believe). The demi glace was rich and flavourful which went along well with Ohira beef.

Definitely, we did enjoy the lunch set here. Next time we shall return for dinner and surely we must taste steak with Ohira beef to see how it goes. At this juncture, I personally suppose it should be awesome but let keep fingers crossed for the time being.
