We are fans of the BIG Group. We’ve been to Ben’s, Plan B, T Forty Two, Canoodling and Rice米aurant and we loved them all. This time around, we heard about S.Wine Café in Ben’s Independent Grocer in Publika and decided to pay them a visit.
It was a weekend night and the restaurant was packed with patrons, we waited around 30 minutes before being called to our table. We took the opportunity to walk around the area and took photos instead.
Despite the huge crowd in the restaurant, it didn’t take long until our food arrived. On top of two main dishes, we ordered a side to share. Priced at RM19.90, the Pulled Pork Chilli Fries with Melted Mozzarella Cheese was absolutely delicious. Crinkled fries were topped with Mexicana pulled pork, home made baked beans, melting mozzarella cheese and sour cream. Contrary to our expectation, it wasn’t a tad spicy at all. However, the fries were thick and delicious, even better when eaten with the thick layer of cheese, pork and sour cream. Definitely a nice snack to bite on!
The Spicy Bacon & Mushrooms Pasta arrived shortly after the fries. Priced at RM23.90, we found this pasta amazing! Olio styled spaghetti was tossed with chorizo, pancetta chunks, sautéed button mushrooms, arugula and chilli flakes. The end product was peppery spicy and tasty with a tinge of Chinese style cooking. Although the meat was on the dry side, the spaghetti was delicious overall, it was my favourite dish of the night!
My better half seemed to enjoy the Sloppy Piggy Burger with Mexicana Pulled Pork more. Also priced at RM23.90, the pork burger was slopped with Mexicana pulled pork on a brioche burger bun and was served with coleslaw and crinkled fries. The pork burger was mouth-wateringly delicious, the patty was thick and juicy while the bun was buttery and fluffy, and we loved the combination of the pulled pork which goes very well with the patty. Absolutely delicious, highly recommended to try!
On our second visit, we had the Hainanese Pork Chops which was recommended by many. Priced at RM26, we were absolutely satisfied with this pork chop drenched in tomato sauce with peas, corn and carrot topped with coriander and served on a bed of crinkled fries. The pork was soft and moist while the tomato sauce was very delicious and appetising! I personally prefer S.Wine’s version over Yut Kee’s version.
Besides, we also tried their Pork Satay with Pineapple Peanut Sauce which was priced at RM24. The pork belly satay was served with home made peanut pineapple sauce, cucumber, onions and nasi impit. The pork satay was good, thick, juicy and very flavourful on its own. However, the peanut sauce lacked a spicy kick which we thought will make the satay taste even better.
Overall, S.Wine’s food serving was very good and generous and we were very full after dinner. Do check this place out if you love pork! There are endless pork dishes to choose from. We will definitely revisit!
