This neigh­bour­hood bar does it dif­fer­ently

Knowhere might look like your typ­i­cal neigh­bour­hood bar on the out­side, but step in and be wowed by the strik­ing decor inside. Its fea­ture wall is hand-painted by 13 lo­cal artists while fairy lights deck the ceil­ing to cre­ate a warm and in­ti­mate vibe that makes it a great spot to dine and un­wind.

Be­ing both a bar and an eatery, its menu in­cludes a gen­er­ous of­fer­ing of cre­ative cock­tails, mock­tails and feasts.

We gave their two sig­na­tures a go: The Os­man­thus Breeze cock­tail, RM40, was a re­fresh­ing con­coc­tion of gin with Os­man­thus syrup, ap­ple juice, sours and cream cheese foam; while the Pan­dan San­tan Co­lado mock­tail, RM12, was a de­li­cious mix­ture of pan­dan syrup, co­conut milk, sours and egg white.

If you are feel­ing peck­ish with pals, the best op­tion is the Shar­ing Plat­ter, RM48.80, which of­fers va­ri­ety – chicken wings, cala­mari, baby shrimps and wedges. Or try Knowhere Na­chos, RM26.80, which comes with crispy corn tor­tillas lay­ered with Knowhere sauce, gua­camole, jalapeños, monty jack cheese and pulled roasted chicken.

What also piqued our in­ter­est was the Lime Cured Beef Tongue, RM26.80. Af­ter pluck­ing up the courage to give it a go, we dis­cov­ered the finely sliced pick­led beef tongue was not chewy as ex­pected. The onion chilli jam tar­tine also helped to el­e­vate it to an­other level.

If you had to choose only one dish, go for their thin-crust piz­zas. The Duck Con­fit Pizza, RM36.80, was a mix of onion mar­malade, con­fit onion and duck con­fit while the Tomato Gala Pizza, RM26.80, had three kinds of toma­toes – sun­dried, semi-dried and cherry toma­toes. Knowhere is lo­cated at 50 Jalan Maarof, Bangsar, 59100 Kuala Lumpur. Call 010-220 2358 for more in­for­ma­tion.

The fea­ture wall show­cases artists’ in­ter­pre­ta­tions of where they want to take the view­ers to.

As part of their goal to min­imise the use of plas­tic, Knowhere uses re­us­able bam­boo straws hand­made by the Usuk Ini­tia­tive from Sabah for their re­fresh­ing Os­man­thus Breeze cock­tail. 2. Pan­dan Co­lada re­minds us of a Malay kuih, ex­cept in liq­uid form. 3. We en­joyed the tasty dips that came with the Shar­ing Plat­ter, es­pe­cially the Bela­can Salsa! 4. The Beef Tongue was served with de­li­cious bread and a gen­er­ous help­ing of onion jam. 5. Thin-crust lovers will love the pizza se­lec­tion. 6. Knowhere Na­chos is a crunchy yet gooey con­coc­tion of crispy corn tor­tillas, Knowhere sauce, gua­camole, jalapeños, cheese and pulled chicken.
