During my time staying in Hanoi, the Castelo Concepts (a restaurant chain) became my most frequented hangout. I collected stamps for a free pizza and waited eagerly for every Friday to buy one pizza get one free at Al Fresco’s. I ate numerous buffet lunches at Pepperonis. Never did it occur to me that one day I would have a chance to visit the original Pepperonis restaurant — founded in 1992 in Sai Kung, Hong Kong. The day I had lunch at THE ORIGINAL PEPPERONIS is forever marked in my calendar: things can always happen in the most unexpected way possible.
Pepperonis was the place for me to fuel my energy up before I hiked to Trio beach in Saikung. It was a relatively short walk from the bus station. Pepperonis is located in a quiet neighborhood, which makes sitting outside pleasant enough.
