Mr Wolf @ Taman SEA PJ
If you decide to give Mr Wolf a try, please turn down your ego and turn on your GPS. This restaurant + bar (upstairs) serving Asian fusion cuisine is tucked in a rather quiet area which would be pretty scary getting lost in. However, they're not hard to find and there's always a sea of parking !
But we all know what really matters...
I'm getting hungry typing this because the star of the night shone bright! Surprisingly, the most om-nom dish was from the "Bar food" menu: Tiger-beer-battered soft shell crab buns with kimchi mayo and caramelised onions (RM12/bun)
Who knew that soft fluffy bun buns would be such a perfect texture match to the crispy soft shell crabs. A mini explosion went on in my mouth on the first bite because of the generous amount of their special tangy kimchi mayo bursting out. That really helps pack flavour and keep the sliders moist.
Pan fried Hokkaido scallops, cauliflower puree, avruga caviar, aojiso truffle dressing, french bean & quinoa (RM42)
The scallops were huge and well seasoned with a nice chunky bite to it. Personally, I think a slightly stronger sear on the surface could have made it much better though. The mildly sweet puree complemented the dish together with quinoa, beans and caviar which gave it crunch and variety in flavour.
Spaghetti Carbonara of streaky bacon, button mushrooms and 63c egg (RM30)
I have to say this was the only slight disappointment of the night. The perfectly smooth and wobbly egg was the best, but wasn't good enough to make the dish. The sauce was screaming for more cheese as it was quite thin and lacked flavour. Yes bacon is good but this just doesn't cut it as a carbonara and generally lacks that oomph.
Food here is imaginative and I hear the menu changes ever quarterly. Look no further if you want an affordable, casual and comfortable place which serves fancy-fine-dine-ish food.
Verdict: Great place for a date!
