CONNOR'S Stout Porter Infused Dishes at MEJA Kitchen + Bar, TREC, KL

MEJA, a familiar local word for table,
a symbol for friends and strangers to gather,
a place to eat, drink and celebrate life. 

Yes, you are right. MEJA is a local-European style restaurant located next to the hottest night club in the heart of the TREC entertainment centre in Kuala Lumpur. My recent dinner affair with MEJA has made me realise that restaurants in TREC not only serve good drinks and bar snacks, but also delicious food especially for those who are seeking for all-day dining experience here. 

Open 7 days a week, MEJA represents a collective of passionate folks with the desire to gather the international community for a feast of local cuisine and fusion European dishes. Indoor and outdoor dining is available here, but I personally prefer the contemporary and warm interior for a lovely dinner date.  

MEJA is currently having a special menu for a complete CONNOR’S Experience in which Chef Eric has carefully crafted two dishes using the  deliciously brewed CONNOR'S Stout Porter as one of the key ingredients, and then pair the dishes with the stout porter itself. How does that sound? Delicious? Let's try it out...

To pamper the starving tummy, we have the Premium Slice Beef Spaghetti cooked in CONNOR'S sauce. For those who are craving for some light bites while downing a pint or two, the Crispy Fried Chicken Wings with CONNOR'S dipping sauce will certainly get you hooked. Both dishes require a good amount of marinating time, so that the CONNOR'S Stout Porter is well-infused into the meat.

+ 1 Full Pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter @ RM28++

When it comes to crisp, aromatic fried chicken, I bet nobody can resist it because it yields a delicious crunch on the outside, and remains tender soft inside. Marinated with CONNOR'S Stout Porter reduction and other spices for over 48 hours, I am delighted that the resulting meat tastes a little sweet from the malt and spicy from the marinade. 

But the best part is, no doubt, the sweet-spicy CONNOR'S chilli dipping sauce which further brings our enjoyment to the next level. Dip the wings into it a take a small bite to savour the malty sweetness. Simply luscious!

+ 1 Full Pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter @ RM38++

For the mains, we have a very generous portion of spaghetti with extra soft beef strips, all thanks to the 12-hours CONNOR'S marination that naturally tenderises the meat. The black pepper inspired sauce is also worth a mention because it is cooked using the same sauce from the CONNOR'S marinade, hence jam packing all the flavours of malts in this dish. 

From this dish, you'd enjoy the aroma of black pepper on the mouth,
followed by strong aroma and sweetness of malt from every forkful of spaghetti and beef slices.

The portion is definitely not for a small eater; Sharing is highly recommended.

After filling up the tummy with chicken wings and beef spaghetti, our night at MEJA is only made right with a perfect pint of CONNOR'S Stout Porter to achieve a balance of malty, delicious taste. Remember to slowly sip into the frothy foam and down the freshly poured pint while it is chilled! 

Enjoying the pints one after another, my dining partners and I can easily spend hours at MEJA with never-ending streams of laughter and conversation. Since it is getting late, I am glad to be chaffeured home by GrabCar.
