Brasserie Wolf is under the Esmirada group and swept the votes at the 2006 Singapore Gourmet Hunt competition to win the Most Popular Western Cuisine Restaurant award.
I took advantage of the 2 course set lunch priced at $25++ . There are a few choices for the starters and the mains.
P.S: The pictures are a little blur due to the lighting in the restaurant and light rays from the sun .
Marinated Tuna with balsamic and Rocket salad
The tuna is marinated with some balsamic and lightly seared. I felt that it was a little over-done . It was diffucult to master the skill of searing tuna till middle rare… I can taste the hint of balsamic in the tuna. The rocket salad looks wilted and indeed it was not that fresh after all… + salty!
Roasted chicken roulade stuffed, crabmeat, Risotto milanaise & mushroom sauce
I think they used the chicken breast instead of the thigh/Leg as the meat is slightly dry and rough.
The chicken is rolled up with minced crabmeat, mushrooms and carrots and roasted.
However, I can’t taste any crabmeat in it and could only find finely chopped carrots and mushrooms. I would prefer the outer layer to be slightly charred since it is roasted .
I actually requested for them to replace the risotto to mixed vegetables and apparently they have forgotten my request. They still serve the risotto on my plate… I gladly accept it as I do not want to waste food. However, they kindly prepare a mixed vegetable as a side dish for me ( as an apology).
I like the mushroom sauce which was quite mushroom-y and there were some black fungus in it. I requested for extra sauce to go along with the slightly dry chicken.
Sauteed mixed vegetables (FOC)
The mixed vegetables( cannelli beans, asparagus, brocolli, sweet peas and mushrooms) were light sauteed with garlic.
Indeed, all the veggies are green in colour! The only fault I can find is the saltish flavour…. pass me the water pls!!!
Overall, there were some hits and misses here. The staff are generally friendly and attentive but can be a little absent-minded.
