About a year ago, a restaurant by the name of the “Three Little Pigs & the Big Bad Wolf” started business in Bangsar Village I. Located at the ground floor of the shopping centre, this cosy yet sophisticated non-halal restaurant’s concept is based on the popular fable, The Three Little Pigs. However, unlike the fable, this place was packed with not just one, but many hungry ‘wolves’, devouring the little pigs prepared in many ways without having to huff and puff away any straw houses. The joint has indoor and outdoor dining spaces, and the crowd is very mixed.
What sets this restaurant apart from most fusion restaurants are its two personalities. From 8am to 6pm, the restaurant serves the Three Little Pigs menu, while from 6pm to 11pm this is replaced with the Big Bad Wolf menu. Both these personalities have their individual settings, such as the walk-in wine section which opens at 6pm. Their menus are playfully named, with dishes called ‘The Big Bad Burger’ and ‘Piggies Rolling in the Mud’ to fit the fun concept of this restaurant.
My family and I arrived during the Big Bad Wolf service, and I ordered the ‘Wolf’s Favourite’ – a pasta dish that happens to be one of their specialties. The portion was very generous and just nice, as it was not overwhelming. Usually pastas with creamy sauces end up being too rich, filling you up halfway through the meal, but to my surprise, the Wolf’s Favourite did not do so. The creamy white sauce was just enough to lightly coat the linguine, and the poached egg and bacon served with it was cooked to perfection. There were also a lot of different textures and depth to the dish- each bite came with the crunchiness of the bacon, the silkiness of the egg yolk and cream sauce, as well as some savouriness to balance it all up. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. This is a place I would definitely dine in again- and I recommend that you check it out as well.
