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.
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.
