Pig & Wolf

Pig & Wolf, Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Address: 7.01.07 & E7.01.07 Level 7, Pavilion Mall, 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It has been a while since my last visit to Pavilion and now, it has a new wing called Pavilion Elite with many branded outlets and restaurants situated at this new wing. Besides that, I came across a another new wing in the old Pavilion, the Level 7 which has plenty of restaurants there.

One of them is the Pig and Wolf. It is a non-Halal restaurant. My apologies to all my Muslim readers.

According to the Pavilion’s website, Pig and Wolf restaurant is a subsidiary of the popular 3 Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf. It is a casual dining restaurant that offers a mixture of Western and Asian cuisines. It offers from pork burgers, pasta to pork ribs.

Together with my friend, we explored this new restaurant. Initially, we wanted to order the set meal which comes with a soft drink and soup of the day. However, after looking at the a la carte dishes, we decided to order separately which we can have what we wanted to try.

During our visit they were doing a ‘Buy 1 Free 1’ promotion for the coffee’s menu which we both felt it was a better offer than having the soft drinks from the set meal. So, my friend picked the Iced Mocha and I chose the Iced Latte. Their coffee is just right and does not need extra sugar syrup.

My friend spotted the luncheon meat fries on the menu and we ordered one basket to share together. It is a simple appetizer which we can do it at home too. The luncheon meat is slightly fried and it tastes nice and crispy.

We ordered the Mighty Porky Burger which is one of the recommended dish on their menu. The presentation of the burger is still alright with some salads on one side and wedges on the another side. I liked the crispy and hot wedges. As for the pork burger, the pork patty is slightly dry.

We ordered the Pork Steak too which was recommended by the waiter. The meat was well marinated and strong garlic smell. The meat is juicier than the pork burger and it has the same side dishes.

Overall, the food portion is good enough, maybe they can improve the taste of the food to be more attractive. The environment in the restaurant is good and quiet, suitable for big group of people as there are plenty of long tables in the restaurant. We spent our afternoon here for lunch and coffee.

Fat Boys Burger

Fat Boys Burger, Orchard Road, Singapore.

I am going to do a throw back of the events happened during the last March. Just a day before the Sundown Singapore Marathon 2017, I met up with two other friends for a casual dinner after work at the Fat Boys Burger which is located at Orchard Road. It is my first time visiting this branch. The first visit was at Upper Thomson Road.

There was no queue when my friend and I walked from Plaza Singapore to this restaurant which is situation along Orchard Road, right behind the bus stand. However, the restaurant was full house and no tables available for three person. We waited quite a while because we did not want to sit at those high chairs at the bar side.

So much waiting time wasted and we quickly ordered our food once we got our seats not far from the restaurant’s entrance after a couple paid their bill and left the place. The waitress is quite friendly and repeated our orders carefully. It took a while more before they served our food. My friend ordered the Fries with Cheese and shared among us. It is a day full of fries and carbohydrates.

I ordered the Royale with Cheese which comes with a beef patty, soft sesame bun and some fries. I took a top view of the burger and then, I recalled the days before I met a sales person who works for F&B merchant portal. It makes me to take another good shot of the burger in which I decided to make it naked.

I took a close up picture of the beef patty with a piece of cheese. This is how the burger looks like. As for the taste and the sauce combination, I felt satisfied and finished the whole burger without complaints.

Soup Spoon

Soup Spoon

Sunday’s afternoon lunch meet up with my great “brother” in Singapore. I met up with my friend who treated each other like brother and sister after a short chat in FB messenger whereby I told him about an IT event on-going. We met up at Raffles Place MRT where it was most convenient place for both of us to meet up, as I was coming down from the East and he was taking the Red line from the North.

Before that, I purchased the Groupon’s voucher of SGD$20.00 worth of value which we can order two sets of soups and we saved about few dollars each person. It is always good to check out the great deals online before we head off to the restaurant.

I ordered the roasted pumpkin soup with a tuna mayo bread. It is one of their set with bread. Instead of bread, you can choose to have sets with salad too. My friend chose to eat the minestrone soup with salad. The portion of our food is quite big portion which comes with bread, salad and rice. Besides that, the set meal comes with a drink of your choice too.

The pumpkin is rich source of minerals like copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorus. Pumpkin seeds indeed are an excellent source of dietary fiber and mono-unsaturated fatty acids, which are good for heart health. That day, I was still having the cough and flu. After having the pumpkin soup and hot black tea, my flu was getting better than the days before.

It is an healthy meal of the day with great set meal offer which I see its benefits more than other things.

Dancing Crab

Address: 200 Turf Club Road, #01-20/21 The Grandstand, The Grandstand, 287994 Singapore.

My friend bought two Groupon vouchers to eat at Dancing Crab. We booked a table for five people for dinner at the Dancing Crab’s The Grandstand branch. There was no crowd when we visited the restaurant that night due to heavy rain in the evening.
While we were waiting for another two other friends to join us, we ordered two set of the Dancing Crab Seafood Combo.

We ordered the Combo Bag #1 (Sri Lankan Crab)

It consists a Sri Lankan crab, prawns, clams, potatoes, sausages and corns cooks with their signature sauce. The amount of seafood is reasonable, size of the crab is alright for us to share. The seafood is fresh, their signature sauce blends nicely with it.

We ordered the Combo Bag #1 (Lobster) too. It consists the same ingredients are the crab and cook with different sauce. I am not able to recall the name of their signature sauces.

We added the Grilled Butter Rolls to dip the sauce and to complete the dinner. When it was served hot, dip it into the sauce, it tastes great.

Since we used the vouchers for this dinner, it is still reasonable good and worth to give a try. However, the location of this restaurant is hard to be reached with public transport so be prepared to use Uber or Grab.

Morganfield’s

Address: C4.03.00, Level 4, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur Shopping Mall, 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I went back to Kuala Lumpur soon after my last service day in Singapore and the next day, I met up with two friends for “celebration”. One of them suggested to visit Pavilion Shopping Mall for our dinner and it was heavy jammed with many cars went to city after the rain stopped.

It took us more than 30 minutes to look for a parking space in the shopping mall when we arrived the place around 6PM. Since, western food was our choice for that night’s dinner, we picked Morganfield’s where we can share the platter together.

We ordered The Carnivore platter and bottomless drinks. I knew it was the month of the Octoberfest and none of us are drinker. So skip.

The Carnivore platter shared with 2 other friends consists of full BBQ spare ribs, half herbs roasted chicken, grilled Spicy Devil sausage, grilled Herby Hog sausage, garden salads, corns on the cob, corn breads and many fries.

The spare ribs are wonderful and heavenly done while the herbs roasted chicken was dry especially at the chicken breast part. My friend said the spicy devil sausage was quite spicy and prefer the herb type. Personally, both carried a different taste and nice. The corn bread was a bit dry texture. It would be better if it is more fluffy.

This portion is good for four persons because three of us find it difficult to finish the platter of meat. After all it is a satisfying dinner with great people.

Secret Recipe

Address: G19, Taman Maluri Shopping Centre, Jalan Jejaka, Taman Maluri, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Ambiance: The restaurant is quiet, not crowded. There is limited number of seats in the branch. The service is fast and the waiters are responsive.

The Fish and Chips with salads. It is one of their set lunch dishes. Food presentation is nice, the food taste is just right, the fish is fresh and the crumbs are crispy. It goes well with the tartar sauce. If you wish, you can have some chili sauce or ketchup for the fries.

The hot and cold lemon tea for two persons. And lastly the take away Walnut Brownie for evening tea.

La Marelle

Address: 25A Baghdad Street, Singapore 199664.
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lamarellecafe/

Since after I resigned from my previous company, I did not manage to write any food reviews. One reason was I quite busy with dealing the situation which made me unable to concentrate on writing my food blog.

Taking a break from the hectic working life looks good and the freedom after that is what I am looking forward. Currently, I am actively looking for next job in Singapore. While busy applying for new job opportunity, I still continue writing.

I was back to Singapore for a while, to complete my Great Eastern Women Half Marathon and meet up with some ex-colleagues and friends. One of the friends booked me for a dinner at this colourful cafe located in the city, the La Marelle. I met her up at Tampines and took the MRT together to the location and met up with another friend. It supposed to be 4 girls’ date, unfortunately, another friends of us was sick.

Let us look closer into the food which we ordered.

The Mushroom Aglio E Olio. It is suitable for those who want to go vegetarian for a day. It is quite plain even I choose to non-vegetarian cooking style (means adding lots of garlic). The presentation of the food also needs some improvement. Both of my friends think I ordered fried meehoon.

The Mac and Cheese is overwhelmed with cheese and both of my friends cannot finish the food because the cheese will make their stomach filling. I get to taste a bit from my friend, seriously cheesy! We like the food presentation.

We order two cakes, the gula melaka cake and the cheese cake. Personally, I prefer the gula melaka cake over the cheese cake simply because of the unique taste from the gula melaka cake which make me feeling I should eat more!

 And yes, we finished all the cakes, clean~~~

While enjoying the cakes, we looked around the cafe and found they are selling stuffs too, in which I bought some of the pocket sized notebooks. The interior of the cafe heavily painted with vivid colors and decorated with some beautiful decorations. When you visit this cafe, remember to look up the pinkish staircase to the second level of the shop. I do a little search online, someone mentioned the specialty of this cafe is the Iced Espresso. We did not order drink for that night, maybe, next time when I visit the cafe again, I will check out their drink menu again.
