S.Wine Café

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food|Western Food

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.

S.Wine Café, Publika
Publika isn’t the easiest mall to navigate. However, Ben’s Independent Grocer was huge and it was hard to miss. We found S.Wine Café in the non-halal section of the food stall.

Interior, S.Wine Café
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.

Interior, S.Wine Café
The restaurant was loud and busy and the tables very arranged very close to each other. However, this is usually the price to pay for good food, no?

Iced Soya Milk with Grass Jelly, S.Wine Café
We had an Iced Soya Milk with Grass Jelly for RM9. I personally thought the grass jelly were a bit thin to my liking. However, my better half enjoyed the drink a lot.

Pulled Pork Chilli Fries with Melted Mozzarella Cheese, S.Wine Café
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!

Spicy Bacon & Mushrooms Pasta, S.Wine Café
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!

Sloppy Piggy Burger with Mexicana Pulled Pork, S.Wine Café
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!

Hainanese Pork Chops, S.Wine Café
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.

Pork Satay with Pineapple Peanut Sauce, S.Wine Café
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!

ooo, i haven’t tried the chili fries here yet. looks like something messy but marvelous. i’d feel totally guilty after munching on that, but i’m guessing it’s irresistible when it’s placed there nice and hot on the table 😀

I’ve yet to try this place. The pulled pork chilli fries looks sinful!

I’m a fan of this shredded/ pulled style meat – very common in South America.

The chilli fries looks awesome! Wonder why I didn’t try that when I was there. Do try their BBQ Chorizo Cheeseburger if you going to visit them again (I bet you will. Haha.). It’s pretty good too!

Sean: You’ve definitely got that right! It’s best when it’s hot and excellent for sharing as well =D

ai wei: Haha, good good. At least we’re not alone in thinking that!

Simple Person: Glad that you enjoyed it. We did too!

Bangsar Babe: Ooh, you should try it when you get the chance! S.Wine in all its porky-goodness should not disappoint =)

The Yum List: Haha, we’re becoming fans of it now!

Chong: So many things on their menu sound so appealing, it’s fine to not have tried it. We also cant make up our minds when we’re there on the spot looking at the menu. Haha! But we’ll keep the BBQ Chorizo Cheeseburger in mind for next time. Sounds like good stuff indeed! Thanks for the suggestion! =D

The pictures don’t look good at all.
(1) Restaurant theme looks like a copy from some old English pub, nothing original or Malaysian.
(2) Pasta/spaghetti dish looked half eaten, with wilted green veg lumped on one side.
(3) All the fries looked exactly like those crinkled cut frozen fries you get from supermarket.
(4) The pea+carrot+sweetcorn mix in the photo also looked like those bagged version from the supermarket freezer.

Ok not Michelin quality but how low is low?
