If you read my first post or viewed my about page, which both are basically the same… You would know my birthday is on November 13.
With that being said, it is clear that there is quite a duration from the time of my birthday to the publication of this post. But nevertheless, I thought it would be a good idea to write about my Birthday dinner at Wolf.
When my birthday was coming up, I was contemplating on where to go for my birthday dinner. And while almost making a booking at Catalunya, a famous Spanish Restaurant, my sis told me about the Restaurant she went to for Restaurant Week, a restaurant called Wolf, which specialises in Nose-to-tail cooking of the humble pig. After listening to her rave about it for a while, I decided to go with her suggestion.
After just arriving on time at 7.30pm as stated when making the reservation, I noticed that we are the only ones there, quite oddly, but the restaurant started to fill up after 8pm.

Their Amuse Bouche, A simple yet delicious Bread with Goat Cheese!
Please excuse my photos as the restaurant was quite dim… Hence the lamp, haha! Anyway, this was the Crispy Pig Ear Salad with Endive, Chervil, Pomegranate and an Aioli ($18). A signature appetiser from Wolf. The Pig Ear itself was soft and chewy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. The Pomegranate gave the whole dish some sweetness and crunch too!
The main entrees at Wolf are its 6 Pork Chops from different kinds of pigs, with detailed information about each cuts so customers can choose in accordance with their taste buds.
I had the 350g Mangalica Pork Chop served with sweet potatoes and mesclun($42). As their Pork Chops are of top quality, all of them are cooked to a medium temp, dont worry, it is safe to eat them at medium temp, I did and I survived! This Pork Chop has the most marbling and was the most tender, and it was! But it was slightly lacking in flavour.
Moving on to desserts, A good one is the Coconut and Rum Creme Brulee($12). It has a good Brulee Crust, but it had too much of a rum taste.
The rather Attentive staff overheard that it was my birthday, and they very kindly provided me with a Complimentary Birthday Brownie! The brownie itself was good, a bit fudgey, and the cream below was a good compliment to the brownie.
In Conclusion, the restaurant Wolf is a quaint little restaurant in the CBD area… So a reservation is recommended on a weekday. The decor is rather nice, the staff were friendly and attentive and the food was good.
