Three Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf, Bangsar Village


Can anyone name me the storybook character who said this? Yep, that's right! The Big Bad Wolf from one of the most famous childhood tale, Three Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf!

Oh no, this blog post isn't about a kid's story.

It's about this restaurant in Bangsar Village with a catchy name- Three Little Pigs & the Big Bad Wolf!

The entrance to Three Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf was a little discreet- inside Village Grocer, near the frozen good area. The sign is quite small so you'll have to keep your eyes peeled! (Or alternatively, you can enter through the car park area where the signboard is more prominent)
In this version of story, I supposed that the three little pigs loss to the Big Bad Wolf as this is a non-halal restaurant. TLP&TBBW specializes in serving pork so be sure to prepare yourself for a pork-y feast while dining in here!

Cute drawings decorated the black board wall, bringing the storybook character to live.
The sleek & contemporary interior. Despite being a weekday, TLP&TTBW was really full so the waiters ushered us to the outdoor dining area. The weather was blistering hot so we requested for a seat inside. The waiters were clearly not pleased about it, as they already placed the menus on our designated table. They told us that if we were to sit inside we have to split into two groups. We were very lucky as when we were getting seated the patrons next to us paid their bill so we get to sit together!

Three Little Pigs menu!
I really loved their menu's concept! The menu was depict as a story book. Red hardcover, with cute illustration all over the menu, my college mates instantly went ga-ga over the menu, whipping out the camera, taking tumblr-ish shot =D

The names of their dish were pretty catchy too, examples are "I'm-so-hungry-I-could-eat-a-wolf!" and "Mighty Pig".
Interested in Chapter 2?
You got to visit this place from 6pm-11pm. Three Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf has two menus, the one we were browsing through was the three little pigs menu, which is available from 9am-6pm.

We requested to keep one menu with us as we were getting carried away with our mini photo shoot. The waiter wasn't pleased with it. He kept coming back and check with us whether they could take it back -_- as if they have some menu deficit.

Never mind that, perhaps their business was so good they really need back their menu.
Frank C. Matra & Gang RM36
A platter featuring 4 different kind of sausages, served with a generous side of wedges and dipping sauce. I can't remember the name of the sausages unfortunately as I misplaced the receipt.
The wedges were deep fried into perfection, nice & crunchy, soft and fluffy in the inside. It goes very well with the tangy cheese & mayo dipping sauce which was really addictive.

FRANKLY speaking, the franks (pun indeed) were not really up to par. I felt like as if the franks were too rubbery and hard. The taste was quite normal, nothing to shout about. And it all tasted quite similar. Except for one which has a really strong peppery taste.
Is it worth the price? I don't think so
Cheesy Pork Lasagne RM26
The amount of cheese was really generous. The cheese literally covered up the whole dish! Minced pork meat cooked in bolognese sauce & cheese sauce were generously spread out in each layer of lasagna sheet, resulting in a moist, flavourful and wholesome dish. I enjoyed this dish a lot but some of my friends think that it was tad dry.
The Wolf's Favourite RM29
TLP&TBBW signature dish. Spaghetti tossed in Carbonara sauce, served with bacon, mushroom, and topped with a poached egg. The catchy name and the unique addition of a poached egg definitely caught our attention to order it
I certainly have high hopes for this dish, being TLP&TBBW's forte dish, and also the wolf's favourite (if wolves eat pasta) 
We naughtily poked the egg yolk, hoping to witness the beautiful moment where the bright, golden yolk concealed to ooze out
It was a let down. The amount of yolk flowed out was so scarce.
I was really disappointed with this dish. The egg was overcooked as the yolk wasn't runny at all. The egg white was already in its solid state. The bacon was overcooked. It had an unpleasant burnt taste and was too hard. The noodles were cooked el-dente and the carbonara sauce was superb, but I cannot accept overcooked eggs and burnt bacon so this dish is another no-no for me.

The only dish that I enjoyed was the cheesy pork lasangne. And to rub salt into our wound, the service at TLP&TBBW was horrible.
To sum up what we experienced. One of the waitress that served us found the comment card and read it out loud to her manager while we were leaving. Really?!! I got a feeling that they think that we are just a bunch of students fooling around as the manager didn't seemed convinced.

When we were (trying to) enjoy our meal, the waiters kept coming back and check if there is any dish to clear. First, you're facing a scarcity of menu, and now, plates?! We got ignored a few times while trying to request for an additional knife, and after we paid, waiting for the change seems to take forever.

Overall rating: 3/10
Service Rating: -1/10

This is what you get when you hire foreign workers that has zero passion in their work. Their customer service can be said nearly on par with Nutmeg which is also located in Bangsar Village, without the eye-rolling incident (Read about my horrible dining experience @ Nutmeg HERE)

Would I return again? Nope...definitely not.
