Food Review – Mr. Wolf Asian Fusion Restaurant

[Review]

1

 

The one thing I love about staying in PJ/ Damansara is the sheer amount of restaurants, cafes and bars in those two (2) neighbourhoods and recently a new addition to Taman Sea is Mr. Wolf which is billed as an Asian fusion restaurant with a bar upstairs. Mr. Wolf specialises in PORK and so with much anticipation, I headed over one fine Friday evening to see what they had in store for me.

Deep Fried Baby Crabs & School Prawns with Chilli Lime Dressing - RM15.00

Deep Fried Baby Crabs & School Prawns with Chilli Lime Dressing – RM15.00

These were incredibly addictive and went very well with beer! Salty, sour and sweet at the same time! 

 

Deep Fried Pigs Ear and Bacon - RM18

Deep Fried Pigs Ear and Bacon – RM18

I actually thought the pigs ears were fried ikan bilis until the waiter told me what it was. Crispy and crunchy but not everyone at the table like them which meant more for me! Yay!

 

This dish goes really well with beer

Like the fried prawns, his dish also pairs very well with beer

 

Tiger Beer Battered Soft Shell Crab Buns with Kimchi Mayo - RM12 per bun

Tiger Beer Battered Soft Shell Crab Buns with Kimchi Mayo – RM12 per bun

You know it’s a good slider when the meat is bigger than the bun. The crispy soft shell crab sandwiched between two (2) fluffy buns and topped with a kimchi mayo is a great little snack. Love the whole fusion of Eastern and Western ingredients.

 

Chicken Karaage Bun with Pickled Papaya and Wasabi Mayo - RM8 per bun

Likewise the chicken karaage was crispy and it was well-balanced with the piquant pickled papaya and the creamy wasabi mayo. Another great little snack!

 

Sous Vide Pork Loin - RM32

Sous Vide Pork Loin – RM32

Sous vide pork loin with sautéed mix mushroom, kimchi vegetables, hard boiled egg, and coriander jus. Using the sous vide technique to cook the pork loin made it really tender and juicy. The mushrooms and kimchi vegetables added some earthiness, piquancy and spice to the dish while the coriander jus added even more flavour.

 

Braised Char Siew - RM32

Braised Char Siew – RM32

Braised char siew pork belly, crispy pork hock, nahm prik, pickled papaya and cucumber salad. Oh my!!!! A beautiful chuck of tender char siew! Honestly I didn’t really care about anything else on the plate besides the lovely char siew! Gorgeous and tender! This would put many char siew rice stalls to shame! A must-order for any char siew lover!

 

Black Angus Striploin - RM48

Black Angus Striploin – RM48

Black angus striploin with sweet potato puree, maitake mushroom and capsicum, yuzukusho and true jus. Cooked to a perfect medium rare although from the photo above you can’t really see as it’s covered by the jus. A really really beautiful beef dish and although Mr. Wolf focuses a lot on pork, this beef dish was the star in my books! The sweet potato puree was lovely and really balanced out the dish with its sweetness. The yuzu kosho or yuzu chilli paste was an interesting addition and added an extra dimension to the dish.

 

Slow Roasted Chicken - RM34

Slow Roasted Chicken – RM34

Slow roasted chicken with tomato jam, black fungi and beanshoot salad, fried quinoa, grilled baby corn, curry leaf infused buttermilk sauce. The chicken was surprisingly tender for a chicken breast! The curry butter sauce was simply lovely while the fried quinoa and baby corn gave some variance in texture. Somehow I wished I had some fried mantau buns to mop up the leftover butter sauce!

 

15 Hour Braised Cheeks - RM46

15 Hour Braised Cheeks – RM46

15 hours braised beef cheek served with mushroom puree, red cabbage salad and red wine garlic jus. Super tender and it just falls apart in your mouth. The earthy mushroom puree and sweet jus imparted lots of taste to the beef. I can’t decide if this one or the Black Angus Striploin is my favourite dish of the night. I think it has to be a tie.

 

Chocolate Fondant with Strawberry Coulis and Vanilla Ice Cream - RM18

Chocolate Fondant with Strawberry Coulis and Vanilla Ice Cream – RM18

Who can say not to a chocolate lava cake? Nicely balanced out with the richness of the vanilla ice cream and the tartness of the strawberry coulis. A nice ending to a wonderful meal indeed!

This is one of those restaurants that you’d never expect to be in Taman Sea. However I think its location is great because there is ample (free!) parking right along the row where the restaurant is located after office hours. Definitely a must visit for pork lovers!
