This is the third edition of The CONNOR’S Experience (read We had a handful of small-bites to share that evening, the first being this Caramelised Pork Belly with Kyuri (RM30++ with 1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter). The combination was delightful! Cuts of caramelized pork belly infused in CONNOR’S sauce, plopped on a Japanese cucumber, and topped with melted cheese. Messy to eat no doubt (some landed on the table), but clearly addictive on every mouthful. We didn’t have enough to go around!Next, Braised Meatball (RM30++ with 1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter) with sweet onion CONNOR’S sauce served with sundried tomatoes and bread. The meatballs tasted pleasant, with a nice subtle beef flavor, though I wasn’t a huge fan of the spongy texture, I’d prefer mine more dense and drier.sauOn the Sausage Platter (RM45++ with 1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter) – Spicy Hungarian, German Pepper, Bacon Brawust and Chorizo Sausages, all coated with CONNOR’S honey glaze. It was sweet on the outside, yet savory inside, served with caramelised onion at the side. The Slow-Cooked Pork Belly with CONNOR’S and Spices (RM38++ with 1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter) was fatty yet tender, with flavors that reminded me of the typical Chinese pork belly dish, marinated in CONNOR’S ale and spices, then braised to a tender texture. Underneath, a delicious serving of bacon mashed potato and pork crackers, which I can never have enough of. Saving the best for last! To be honest, this photographs serves no justice to the gigantic rack (800gm!) of glistening Barbecued CONNOR’S Honey Spare Ribs (RM90++ with 1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter). Meant to be shared (unless you havn’t eaten in days!), the chargrilled meat ripped right off the bone, it was tender, and the CONNOR’S infused honey glaze had the right balance of sweetness to it. At the side, grilled vegetables, which I thought was a tad too savoury for my liking however.
Being a Friday evening, and the start to a 3-day long weekend, we stayed a little longer after our meal compared to usual, merely enjoying each other’s company. The partially al fresco ambiance felt relaxed, and clearly conducive to ongoing chit-chatter.
