    We were at Robertson Quay on a Saturday afternoon and we were hungry. Brasserie Wolf beckoned with its crowd free premises so we settled for it.

    It was a warm day and the sufficiently cooled interior provided a nice respite from the heat and away from the al fresco crowds that littered the establishment next door. The setting is decidedly modern with splashes of retro, depending on which area you sit at.

    Traditional French Onion Soup - I liked the richness of the soup but did find it a tad too sweet. The gruyere cheese and toast was great though, with its gooey-ness and mildly charred undertones. Great way to warm up the belly! And if you noticed, the serving bowl is in the shape of a heart. Perfect for those romantic dinners eh?

    Traditional Nicoise Salad - The aesthetics were pleasing and the greens were fresh and crunchy. But I didn't quite take to this dish due to my personal opinion that the grilled tuna was overly fishy. I did like the texture though.

    Pork Belly - "Extremely fatty" was the first thought that popped into my mind when I had a glimpse of the pork belly. Never mind that it was tender or that the sauce gave it a unique oriental feel (tasted like it had hoisin sauce in it). I just couldn't bring myself to stomach (and savour) that proportionally imbalanced piece of pork, not with the skin mildly crispy and sticking to my teeth with every bite.

    USDA Prime Sirloin - The sirloin was more well done than medium well and thus the meat came out a little too dry and tough for my liking. But I did like the natural bovine flavours and the pinch of salt seasoning. What I particularly liked about this dish was the shoestring (irony!) fries and the dip. Free of any rancid oil taste and dipped in creamy goodness with nuances of spring onion - tasty!

    Steamed Toffee and Date Pudding - I fell in love with this dessert at Marmalade Pantry @ Palais some years back. And seeing that Brasserie Wolf served this dessert as well, I decided to take my chances. It wasn't half as good as the one as I had at Marmalade but it was decent. The pudding was much less compact and had a spongy, cake like texture. Topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, the whole combination wasn't overly sweet but sans the toffee sauce, it was reminiscent of steamed cupcakes (发糕). Well, the taste at least.

    With the palate discount of 50%, 2 of us forked out close to $70 for a filling but not entirely gratifying lunch. Food quality hovered a notch above average but service was decent. Coupled with the lack of crowds, I might just be enticed to pop by again for a quiet meal if I happen to be in the vicinity.

    See all my pictures here.

      I wonder if nobody has been to this place or nobody have done a review on this place. I personally have been to this place two times in total, once this year and once last year. For both occassion, I was there for their set lunch. Well, it is mainly due to the fact that my girlfriend has this 1 for 1 set lunch for her birthday. One thing to note for my this review, I could not remember the exact fanciful names of each dish.

      Appetizers

      Foie Gras MUST TRY. Simply melts in your mouth. The taste of the foie gras here is simply magnificent, although it is slightly salty. It will cost you an additional $6 to have this appetizers but it is defintely worth it.

      Escargot Maybe the high expectations and thus the disappointment. Was looking forward to the escargot and the presentation was fanciful. However, it tasted bland. Even the 'ingredients' on top of it was quite tasteless too.

      Main Course

      Ribeye Steak with Fries Honestly, the main reason why I came back this year because I had this last year and since that day, all the steaks that I have eaten would be compared to the Steak here. I chose mine to be medium done. Very juicy, very succulent. Most parts were easy to chew and not tough. Very good but the sauce was still a bit too salty. The fries is very ordinary kind.

      Braised Veal with Mashed Potatoes Tasted good for the 1st few bites, but it makes you get quite tired of it after eating more. Very big portion. Taste very much like braised pork. Mashed potatoes with some special sauce was good though. You can defintely taste that is made from real potatoes and whipped very thoroughly, making it taste smooth.

      Desserts

      Chocolate Mousse Sweet but not too sweet. Defintely one of the better chocolate mousse that I have eaten. Comes with berries.

      Yoghurt with Rasberry sauce Not exactly sure the whether I got the correct name for this dessert. Defintely the better dessert of the 2. My girlfriend had it last year and choose to have it again, just like me choosing the steak again. Only had a small taste of it.

      Total bill came up to $35.31 (1-for-1 set lunch), inclusive of the additional $6 (Foie Gras) and taxes. If I am not mistaken, the 3 course set lunch should be $24, excluding taxes. Also, they serve free-flow of bread, which is very good too. Defintely a steal for such a classy restaurant.
