Nestled in between one whole stretch of all sorts of eateries quietly sits Big Bad Wolf, where the Wolf hides slyly in the different corners of the establishment.
The menu at Big Bad Wolf isn't the extensive sort, which I prefer, because you can always be sure that the food will all be up to standard. A big, comprehensive menu just gives me a headache from having to play the guessing game.
I had perused the reviews online, and walked in knowing just what I was going to order - their signature Big Bad Wolf burger and Cottage Pie, of course!
Big bad wolf burger
I had meant to order The Works, which was Big Bad Wolf with an addition of fried egg, bacon and cheese(!!), (and I just realized) what arrived on our table was just the Big Bad Wolf
The medium done burger I had at Relish was just nice, while the medium-well done burger my boyfriend had was a little too dry for my liking. Using that as a gauge, we opted for just medium for our burger at Big Bad Wolf. Alas, the patty came a little raw but nonetheless still very tasty. The patty was really thick and was just that tiny bit of nicely charred on the outside. The buns were also lightly toasted and went hand-in-hand with the other toppings.
The fries and sauce that came on the side was also another winner. They were not at all oily, came piping hot, crisp on the outside and mushy on the inside. I would say they tasted very similar to those at Swensen's.
The Cottage Pie arrived at our table in a most adorable little piggy bowl. I didn't think the dish was exceptional, but it was good as well, with a layer of mashed potato hugging the chunky minced beef below.
Root beer float
The root beer floats at BBW had a tiny twist to it, giving patrons a choice of vanilla, cookies & cream and chocolate ice cream flavours. It didn't taste too different from those traditional ones from A&W, and finished off the meal very well.
The customer service here was excellent. When I accidentally pushed my huge scoop of ice cream downwards which caused the root beer to overflow, one of the staff immediately rushed forward with a dish towel and lots of serviettes. All of them were really friendly and smiley and were always happy to offer us more sauces, or stop for a chat.
I also liked that the food came really quickly, and I loved how the theme was injected all over the restaurant - even the toilet sign, which reads 'Restroooom....' had a really cute wolf and red riding hood motifs on it. Big Bad Wolf is indeed real Badass. Thumbs up!
