So I have succumbed to peer pressure and finally tried S.Wine at Publika. It is one of the more hyped restaurants in the mall because one, it is owned by BIG group – the same that also owns the highly popular Plan B, and two, the menu is full of pork dishes.

Swine-Publika

The interior is so quirky and funky blah blah blah, honestly I don’t really care. Anyway here’s a cliche photo mosaic of the restaurant because that seems to be the trend in food blogging.

Pea-and-Ham-Soup

Pea & Ham soup @ RM14 was the best tasting dish we had that night and it came totally as a pleasant surprise to all of us. However, the presentation was quite awful, not sure if the chef had a shaky hands or what, the creme fraiche was laced to look like there were tadpoles in the soup – simply unappetizing.


Loaded-Potato-Skins

Loaded Potato Skins @ RM14 – Crispy on the edges with a cheesy gooey center, delicious. Great for sharing since it comes in three pieces.

Pork-Meatballs

Pork Meatballs @ RM19 – Also comes in three, drenched in marinara sauce and topped with cheese. Generous portions, plump and very juicy.

Chorizo-Burger

SL’s Chirazo Cheeseburger @ RM26 – The pork patty is very compact with meat but tastes kind of dry. And I think the price is not really justified for something that is just ‘ok’.

Slab-BBQ-Pork-Ribs

The biggest disappointment (most expensive too) of the meal goes to the Sticky Ribs with Chip and Slaw @ RM80. This humongous slab of ribs is impressive to the eyes alright but looks can also be very, very deceiving. No matter how hungry or big an eater you are, I highly suggest you to share this with at least three people or else you will find this dish a real struggle to finish. Although the meat is fall-off-the-bone-tender, the sauce is plain boring and uninspiring. The three of us basically forced ourselves to finish it for the sake of not wasting food.

S.Wine-Cafe

Solely based on what we ordered, I would say that the starters are better than the mains. Overall it wasn’t a great nor bad dining experience and even though the service here is great, it is highly unlikely we will return to S.Wine again.
