Mr. Wolf @ Taman Sea, Petaling Jaya

12:08:00 PM

Mr Wolf is a fairly new establishment helmed along the LDP at Taman Sea. Locating this place extremely easy as both Google Maps and Waze brings you directly to their doorstep. However, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the place, it is recommended to leave your GPS on until arrival as the roads turning in is a little confusing. 

Apart from that, once you're in the area, you should be able to see a gigantic sign on the 2nd floor. Upon entering, you will be greeted by friendly and attentive staffs, in a casual and bright environment. The question is, how does the food flare?

Deep Fried Baby Crabs & School Prawns with Chilli Lime Dressing and Deep Fried Pigs Ear and Bacon - RM15 / RM18

Starting off strong with a light serving of bar food (which is available upstairs). Among these two, I prefer the Deep Fried Baby Crabs & School Prawns as it is fried to crispy perfection. The overall taste of it too is fairly salty, which gives it a nice edge and addictiveness to the dish.

Of course, not that the Deep Fried Pigs Ear is any bad, just that it felt a lot like crispy fish bones or some sort. Definitely an interesting dish and both of these goes really well with my Guinness.


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

Something a little more asian with a take on soft shell crab and kimchi mayo. This amazingly buttery burgers comes packed with a whole lot of flavour, along with a good play of texture as well. An ideal piece of gem before the start of an alcoholic streak!


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

Similarly, this Japanese inspired burger also flares well with its upper brethren. Served with deliciously crispy and juicy chicken kaarage, topped with a mild wasabi mayo that gives it that depth and added moisture, finished with some pickled papaya that helps balance out the flavour, all encased in a buttery homemade brioche. 


Sous Vide Pork Loin - RM32

Mr Wolf's main courses consists of a wide variety of signature dishes, with the Sous Vide Pork Loin being one of them. This beautifully cooked pork loin was not only tender to the core, it was packed with a good amount of flavour as well. The play of texture from all the accompanying sides such as the sauteed mixed mushrooms, kimchi vegetables and coriander jus gave it that added dimension and bite, which is delightful. 


Braised Char Siew - RM32

Have you ever thought that a few slices of char siew isn't enough? Well, so have I. Mr Wolf's 'ang-mo' version of the braised char siew comes in a large chunk, with a good balance of fat to meat ratio. Though I have to say that there were more fat, I simply loved the flavour of it melting in my mouth.


Look at that thick slices of char siew!


Black Angus Striploin - RM48

For a more fulfilling feast, you ought to try out Mr Wolf's Black Angus Striploin! Cooked perfectly medium, these strips of black angus comes with a whole lot of flavour, and a sensation in your mouth that is hardly describable. Served on a bed of sweet potato puree, maitake mushrooms, capsicum and daused in yuzukusho and truffle jus. Beautiful!


15 Hour Braised Cheels - RM46

I may not be a fan of cheeks, but this dish is well executed. With a good amount of time spent on braising it, you can expect it to be as tender and moist as possible. Served with mushroom puree, red cabbage salad and topped with red wine garlic jus, the flavours were simply superb.


Slow Roasted Chicken - RM34

Something a little more 'back to basics' with Slow Roasted Chicken; plated and served beautifully with tomato jam, black fungi, beanshoot salad, fried quinoa, grilled baby corn, and curry leaf infused buttermilk sauce. The combination may sound and look complex, but the flavours matches well with one another. In any case, this is the go-to dish for chicken lovers. 


Chocolate Fondant with Strawberry Coulis and Vanilla Ice Cream - RM18

To finish, we had a dessert serving of chocolate fondant that is packed with a generous amount of dark and rich chocolate. Cutting through the dome was pleasing to the eye as it exposes the amount of chocolate ganache inside. Served with a classic vanilla ice cream and streaks of strawberry coulis!


The bar above. Doesn't matter where you are seated, you can simply order from the menu - both the ground and upper floor. 


To conclude, Mr Wolf is a great place to dine if you're looking for an affordable, quiet, spacious and of course, delicious place to have a casual fine-dining. Most of the dishes are set below RM50, with alcoholic beverages set at an reasonable price as well. Each dish that I had was seasoned, cooked and plated perfectly. So if you're looking for a place to have a date, this might as well be the first to come in your mind.
