The meat has been marinated in Connor’s overnight, along with a mixture of various herbs and spices. At The Big Black Pig, you’ll taste the stout porter in the marinade; and if you get that extra hint of smokiness, that comes from the glaze on the meat over a wood-chip fire barbecue.
The beef that has been marinated in Connor’s is cooked with vegetables over a gentle fire to create a robust stock. Served with pieces of toast on the side, this dish at Chapter One Bar & Bistro is full of tender meat that falls apart with every bite.
Here at Nicsmann 1940s by Lewré, the prime lamb cubes from New Zealand are braised in Connor’s, marinated in almost 100 different herbs and spices, and served with root vegetables, mash potatoes and garlic bread – which creates a hearty and flavourful dish.
Each treat in this platter from Meja Kitchen + Bar gets a Connor’s touch: The grilled tiger prawns are glazed in the stout porter; the chicken is cooked in Connor’s; and the onion rings are fried in an infused batter. Don’t forget the dark Connor’s chilli sauce.
The crisp deep-fried pork ribs from Black Market @ Kampung Pandan go well with the accompanying Connor’s-infused dipping sauce, while the house-made salad on the side provides a refreshing element to the dish.

It may take a bit of effort to find Hubba Hubba at the back of Invito Hotel Suites, but you’re in for a treat once you’re there. The space is decked out with bicycle installations and quirky graffiti – there’s even one of Pac-Man. There's an expansive menu offering Western favourites (burgers and pies) to local delights like Hainanese Chicken Chop. Pair your meal with a drink from an even bigger menu; they have everything from cocktails and wines (at trade prices) to beers (both bottled and draught). It’s called The Party Hub for a reason; promising guests an enjoyable time, this party hub offers entertainment by way of beer pong tables – perfect for a night out on the town.
Situated on the busy street of Jalan Telawi 3 in Bangsar, The X is a bar and restaurant with a Japanese flare. These Japanese influences can also be seen in its food menu. Signatures include the Spicy Uramaki Roll, but if you’re coming in groups, we say order starters, maki rolls and yakitori, which is all great for sharing. Let’s not forget the drinks. Craft beer, classic cocktails, wine (both red and white), whisky and, of course, saké, are available. If you’re looking for a new hang-out spot to add to your list, The X draws in a fun crowd over the weekends with DJs spinning throughout the night.
Meja - which is 'table' in Malay – is a space for friends to dine together and share meals. It boasts a warm environment with fittings of open-bricked walls, long wooden tables and a stylish island bar. The menu fares just as well with delectable Southeast Asian and fusion European dishes. Come by on week days for crazy lunch specials or stop by for after-work drinks with various happy hour promotions.
It's meat galore over at #TheBBP with a menu catered to carnivorous foodies. Located at The Club, it’s a restaurant tucked away from the main streets of PJ, giving you a peaceful dining experience. Perfect for families and big groups, the menu includes main dishes of beef and pork burgers, pastas, pork knuckles, as well as a small barbecue section too. It’s a hidden gem of a restaurant that residents around the area love coming to for after-work drinks and a porky meal. Delicious food at affordable prices; it’s your turn to join in on the neighbourhood secret.
Black Market is a restaurant and lounge that caters to everyone. For one, the menu is huge; ranging from Asian to Western and Italian delights of starters, soups, salads, mains, desserts and cocktails.
Tiki Taka is a sleek and cosy space on Jalan Kasah. Its style is simple; open-bricked walls with a handsome island bar in the middle of the restaurant. You can either gather by the bar and have a pint while watching your favourite game, get comfortable inside, or choose to dine alfresco style. Food-wise, take your pick from the pintxos (small snacks), tapas and mains spread – all great for sharing. There’s also a brunch menu where you’ll get the best of both Asian and Western dishes; from nasi lemak to Nutella and bacon French toast – your next weekend brunch spot is sorted.
Nicsmann 1940s By Lewré is a huge space, which is great for groups of friends or colleagues looking for a fun night out. There are two rooms: The first is the main dining area that also doubles as a lounge where you can sit back and enjoy a few drinks while watching the game (they have more than five television screens); the second part of Nicsmann is where you can find the indoor smoking area as well as darts machines. We think it’s the perfect place for some after-work stress release.
Joining the pack of bars in the busy area of Desa Sri Hartamas is Chapter One Bar & Bistro, a cosy spot for after-work drinks or even a chilled night out. The bar has got you covered in terms of entertainment; you’ll find a foosball and pool table as well as a DJ booth and a stage for live band performances. It’s everything you’d expect of a good bar, so come early, grab a seat at the cosy couches available near the entrance, and watch the world go by.
