From the good people who brought you Howlin' Wolf Bar comes their little puppy with a voracious appetite for hearty food, restaurant Hungry Wolf. It's a welcome addition to the array of restaurants in the Wollongong CBD - it also brings an exciting mix to the Howlin' Wolf family. It sits opposite the bar and is a great way to enjoy lunch or dinner with friends or colleagues, followed with a whiskey in hand or served with a coffee.

For those not familiar with the Big Papa, The Howlin Wolf is known for its amazing array of whiskey, laid back atmosphere and live music, a real gem found in an arcade where you might ordinarily think it only housed the local Crust Pizza.
The Hungry Wolf is an extension of this vibe, serving a mix of tasty American style and Asian dishes. Although it may seem like a curious mix of cuisines, it totally works - not only is the food hearty, it's varied to boot.
Lunches are reasonably priced (for those of you looking for the relief of Sydney prices, you've found it!) - nothing's over $10 and we're not talking your ham sandwiches you could've made yourself. Hungry Wolf offers Po' Boys (American-style subs with a side of fries) for $10 - try the Brisket with mushrooms, tomatoes, rocket and aioli. If you're after a smaller meal, try the Korean Fried Chicken with howlin' sauce for $5.
Dinner is a similar mixed bag of Americana and Asian. Mains include a super-delicious House Ramen for $16 or the ever-popular Southern-style Blackened Fish (gluten free) for $24. Both lunch and dinner menus offer dishes you can share with a group.
The Hungry Wolf is sure to please anyone looking for something new and exciting in Wollongong - it should satisfy longtime residents and visitors alike.
The Hungry Wolf is located at 53-61 Crown St Wollongong, opposite the Howlin' Wolf restaurant. Find the arcade with the Crust Pizza out the front.
