The CONNOR'S Experience - Black Market @ St Mary


Another night of sweet awesomeness with fellow friends, this time over a couple of rounds of CONNOR'S Stout Porter and great food from Black Market @ St Mary. If you have not read my first CONNOR'S Experience last month, then do remember to read it HERE. Similar to the first round, I took the opportunity to catch a GRAB ride to the location (There's a promo for it, so do remember to read till the end of this post)

From my home to the location, Black Market @ St Mary, I took up the GRAB promo and ordered my own personal GrabCar to fetch me there direct from my house. This time around, I was at Black Market @ St Mary to savour their specially curated dishes infused with CONNOR'S Stout Porter. It was an awesome experience, and I especially loved the FOOD!

Destination Reached : Black Market @ St Mary


Ah, my favourite part of the CONNOR'S Experience, FOOD. Having CONNOR'S Stout Porter with good food really made my day. Our destination of choice is the Black Market at St Mary's KL. I haven't been to this restaurant before, hence I was excited the moment I entered, all set to savour what they have to offer.

CONNOR’S-infused Dishes paired perfectly with a pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter 


Pairing CONNOR'S Stout Porter with great food would make a good night out with friends, a GREAT night out! We tried out some of CONNOR'S-infused dishes specially prepared by Black Market @ St Mary. It was to be a "meaty" type of night, as all three dishes has pork and chicken as their main offering. Check out the noms we had that night. 


Let the noms begin!
Let the noms begin!


The Black CONNOR'S Pork Ribs


The Black Connor's Pork Ribs - RM55++ (Paired with Connor's RM69++)

The Black Connor's Pork Ribs had to be one of the most flavourful pork ribs I've had in a while. Marinated overnight and sous vide for 15 hours, you know a lot of effort has been put into the dish the moment you bite into it's crisp outer coating and yummy tender flesh underneath that coating. The portion is pretty big too, good to be shared with a friend, or two. This dish has been infused with CONNOR's Stout Porter, hence the flavour is especially fragrant and tasty. 


Just look how beautiful this is

Served with some greens and salad on the side, Black Market took their signature dish, their Pork Ribs and took it to a new level by infusing it with CONNOR'S Stout Porter. Their salad comes doused in signature house dressing which is tangy and citrus. Great stuff! The sweetness from the glazed outer coating went so well with our pint of CONNOR'S Stout Porter.

How is CONNOR'S Stout Porter being infused into these dishes? Well, for the ribs, it's marinated, vacuum packed and sous vide in CONNOR'S marination. The results is a very tasty offering. But that's not all, let's discover their next hero dish shall we. 


Signature Pork Shoulder With Home-made CONNOR'S Sauce


Signature Pork Shoulder With Home-made Connor's Sauce RM39++ (Paired with Connor's RM 53++)

Specially curated to bring out the best of CONNOR'S Stout Porter, Black Market's Signature Pork Shoulder With Home-made CONNOR'S Sauce is infused through marination. The pork shoulder is tender enough, with lots of flavour inside. It wasn't as soft as the pork ribs though, but of course that's because different parts were used. The dish comes with their signature house-made potato salad which adds a creaminess to the meal.

One of the highlight of this dish is the sauce that is done by reducing CONNOR'S Stout Porter to a certain thickness that gives a wonderful sweet taste with a hint of aromatic tinge and yummy flavour. How's that for some really good flavouring. 


CONNOR'S Pan-fried Chicken with Home-made Potato Salad 


CONNOR'S Pan-fried Chicken with Home-made Potato Salad RM29++ (Paired with CONNOR'S RM43++)

Surprisingly, I took a major liking to the CONNOR'S Pan-fried Chicken with Home-made Potato Salad. I guess it must be the way they prepared the dish, which is so crispy on the outer layer. Even before biting into the meat, the crunch gave me that "oh, I'm loving it" feel. No wonder it's a crowd favourite, where lots of marination is being done before being pan fried.

Again, CONNOR'S Stout Porter is infused into the chicken by marinating it into the meat and sauce. Marinated, vacuum pack and sous vide, these just made the dish so much more tasty!
