Knowhere Bangsar menu centres around modern fusion Sharing Platters on Boards like Seafood Platters, Charcuterie, and Smoked & Aged Cheese Board; innovative Tapas such as Prawn Garlic Tomato Salsa, Smoked Plume & Plum, Lime Cured Beef Tongue, Mussel Sambal with Basil Lime, Duck Prosciutto on Toast; as well as burgers, pizza, and sandwiches for more hearty picks.
Burnt Butter Steak RM26.80
Began our tasting session with Burnt Butter Steak – Knowhere Bangsar signature dish. Seared Flank Steak seared right, locking in moist, flavours and tenderness. Sliced and drizzled with Chilli Burnt Butter Sauce for that extra buttery, spicy kick. Recommended.
Lime Cured Beef Tongue RM26.80
Lime Cured Beef Tongue, we thought we were not going to enjoy this but we were wrong. It was delicious! Like how the refreshing, citrusy hint of lime enhanced the overall taste of the finely sliced house-pickled beef tongue. Served with Onion Chilli Jam Tartline that is equally lovely.
Grilled Calamari RM24.80
Grilled Calamari is a local flavours-infused dish, serving fiery hot condiment that Malaysian prides at – Sambal, along with South Chine Sea grilled squid. Squid fresh from the grill, aromatic, fresh and bouncy. Great on its own, better to dip with piquant Belacan salsa.
Half-Half Duck Confit Pizza & Tomato Gala RM36.80
Ordered a half-half pizza too – Flambe Style Pizza with Onion Marmalade, Confit Onion and Duck Confit; Magherita Pizza with Sundried, Semi-Dried and Cherry Tomatoes.
All pizzas on the menu is available for mix and match. Whether you want a Seafood Malaya that has mild spicy sambal seafood with selasih leaves and Mozzarella cheese; Chicken Mexicana that has grilled chicken, chicken sausages, sun-dried tomatoes, jalapenos and olives toppings ; Roasted Chicken, Beef Bacon, Minced Beef, Tomatoes, Jalapenos, loaded Carnivore pizza; or meat-free Al-Funghi with Creamy Wild Mushroom, pick 2 of your favourite flavours and have the price capped at RM36.80.
Smoked Popcorn Old Fashioned RM36
Knowhere Bangsar offers a comprehensive selection of cocktails. Some are captivating, truly a feast for the eyes, like this Smoked Popcorn Old Fashioned – Whisky stirred with popcorn syrup, grapfruit bitters, smoked with in-huse wood chips.
Get your camera ready and capture the Instagram-worth moments of this cocktail.
Kebaya Nyonya RM40 – butterfly pea infused Gin & Bunga Kantan, Golden Farlenum, white choc and homemade Grapefruit thyme soda.
And yeah, if you notice the same as us. That is a re-usable bamboo straw, handmade by the Usuk Initiative from Sabah. This is in line with the call of “The Last Plastic Straw” global moments in minimizing the use of plastic – a material that take hundreds years, or more, to decompose. They also collaborate with My Tak Nak Straws, to campaign the use of Metal straws. #LoudApplause
Other than cocktails, liquers, beers and carefully curated wine as well as a wide range of Cuban and Dominican cigars are on the list too.
Overall review: Knowhere Bangsar is way more recommended that we first thought of. Friendly service, great food, awesome cocktail, thoughtfully designed interior aside, the part that we adore this place most is – mastermind behind Knowhere Bangsar put high concern on sustainable living.
They minimize the use of plastic, compost food scraps in Kebun-Kebun Bangsar urban garden, and driving the initiative towards zero waste lifestyle . An inspiring move that both restaurants and individuals should learn on.
