Pigs & Wolf in Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur

I just broke a new record last Tuesday. That is the fastest overseas trip that I've ever taken in my life. The record time : approximately 12 hours. Yup! I flew out of Singapore for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in the morning and was back at Changi International Airport 12 hours after. I have to say the trip left me so exhausted and almost in the brink of collapsing but looking back, it was still a nice adventure all together.

Since I had a bit of time before my scheduled meeting in Kuala Lumpur, I decided to head to my favorite shopping mall -- Pavilion as this is one place I know I won't feel lost and can easily hail a cab to my meeting place right away. Pavilion is located along Jalan Bukit Bintang, the shopping district of Kuala Lumpur. It houses a lot of luxury brands so you can tell immediately that this mall is rather upscale. I like it though as I try to avoid overly crowded malls and walking around Pavilion never fails to give me that sense of peace.

For lunch, I checked out the newly opened section of the mall called Dining Loft. It's at the 7th floor of the mall and I find the mix of restaurants rather trendy. I first spotted Pigs & Wolf which reminded me of the Three Little Pigs nursery rhyme.

What does Pigs & Wolf specializes in? Pork, of course! Not known to many, I'm not really crazy over bacon (sorry friends!), as I prefer to have sausages if given the choice, so it took me a while to choose what to get for lunch that day. Finally, I decided to try the Wolf's Favourite (RM 29) as it's one of the house specialties.

Creamy pasta served with smoked bacon and button mushrooms topped with poached egg and crunchy bacon bits with parmesan cheese. Ooh lala! Such a rich and creamy pasta dish that's similar to a carbonara. This suddenly reminded me of my bacon-loving friends whom I know will love love love this!

Now, let us take a look at that yolk slowly oozing out. Gorgeous, isn't it? The pasta was surprisingly good as I enjoyed the salty kick of the bacon which perfectly contrasted with the creamy sauce. It makes a good comfort dish.

To go with my pasta dish, I tried the Wake Up (RM12) which is a healthy blend of celery, apple, orange and lemon. Slightly similar to may favourite morning ABC drink only it has a tangy aftertaste due to the citrus-y addition. It was quite warm in Kuala Lumpur during the day that I was there so I happily drank this to cool myself down.

Honestly, I entered the restaurant with zero expectations. My main goal was to have lunch and to be able to sit comfortably as I catch up with my work emails. It's one of those moments that I thought I'll just eat. Didn't expect the food would leave a lasting mark, good enough to push me to blog about it. Well, Pigs & Wolf did more than that. The superb service of the staff, the delicious pasta dish that I ordered, and the refreshing drink that I enjoyed left me in such a happy state afterwards.
