According to Chef Eric, the starter crispy fried chicken wings is his innovation trying different types of ingredients to make dips for chicken wings. Where else, the main course which is the premium slice beef spaghetti is inspired by the Chinese style black pepper sauce.

The appetizer that goes well with CONNOR’S Stout Porter, we love Crispy Fried Chicken Wings with dark CONNOR’S Chilli Dip. When the waiter served it, the first thing that I noticed was the aromatic smell that makes me salivate. According to Chef Eric, the chicken is marinated with CONNOR’S Stout Porter and other spices for 48 hours. The specialty is the dipping sauce, it is their in-house syrup the combination of lemon zest, cinnamon stick, lime zest, chilli, sugar and lastly cooked with CONNOR’S Stout Porter.

The Crispy Fried Chicken Wings has a mild hint of sweetness taste of malt from CONNOR’S Stout Porter. Dip the Crispy Fried Chicken Wings into the special Dark CONNOR’S-infused Chilli dipping sauce and take a small bite to enjoy the sweetness of the malt and the aromatic taste that blends well with a bit of tanginess from the lemon and spiciness from the cili padi and bit of sugar. Overall the dipping sauce gives the extra kick to the Crispy Fried Chicken Wings.

The main dish is the Premium Slice Beef over light CONNOR’S Stew Spaghetti with mixed capsicum paired with CONNOR’S Stout Porter is satisfying. The portion is quite big and there are decent amount of tender sliced beef and ingredients in it.

CONNOR’S Stout Porter are brewed with 4 key top quality ingredients (lager malt, caramel malt, brown malt and roasted barley) which are suitable to infuse and also as a natural tenderizer for beef. Chef Eric soaked the Premium Slice Beef in CONNOR’S Stout Porter for 12 hours before grilled it to perfection.

Then the remaining beef marination sauce is used to sauté the pasta and black pepper. The beef is flavourful, well marinated and tender and black pepper gives a bit of kick to the overall flavour and aroma.

To enjoy the truly aromatic and sweetness taste of malt, the best way is to stir the beef slices with the spaghetti, take a small twist of spaghetti with fork and taste it together with the beef.
