Black Market @ St Mary Residences

Another branch so soon: Black Market opened its first outlet only this year at Kampung Pandan, but it's expanding already, launching its latest place at St Mary Residences.
Entries on Black Market @ Kampung Pandan: March 13 & March 15.

Black Market's menu has broadened in the months since March, now comprising new temptations that nonetheless remain unabashedly porky & irredeemably decadent. Even this salad isn't spared from sinfulness, thanks to the Jamon Iberico & sunny-side-up egg that come with rocket leaves, cherry tomatoes, olive oil & shiitake balsamic dressing.

Cool way to squeeze a lemon slice over this recipe, cutely nicknamed "Fly Pig To The Moon" (RM26+) on the menu (combining the imagery of rocket, pork & yolk).

More Spanish cured ham, this time accompanying a succulent slab of pork shoulder grilled with red wine sauce & served with poached zucchini (RM38+).

Minced pork & fish maw in a Chinese-style soup (RM15+). Not bad, not brilliant.

These pork ribs (RM42) might look dry but they're not, oven-baked to tasty tenderness.

Not exactly a pork burger, but every bit as satisfactory: 'The Great Hog Bun' (RM28+), essentially a pork chop panini with guacamole & nachos on the side.

Dessert hops over in the form of a bunny bearing a boozy tiramisu (RM16+), infused with illy coffee liquor (barely perceptibly though).

This branch of Black Market looks nice, in its own fashion. Fairly classy.

  3. The food and decor are very nice, Sean. I don't like the name "Black Market", though, it makes me think of illegal things. LOL!
