Knowhere Bangsar, KL : A La Carte Menu + Cocktails

We recently checked out Knowhere's weekend brunch menu, and the food totally impressed us, so we went back again to this Bangsar restaurant to sample their a la carte menu.

Available daily after 4pm, the a la carte menu features tapas, soups, grazing platters, pasta, sliders and pizzas, all competently executed with a Malaysian twist.

To start, we tried a selection of their tapas, small plates which are great for sharing. The Smoked canard and plum (RM24.80) was one of my favorites, slices of house smoked duck paired with a sweet plum and peach salsa, mango sauce and onion marmalade. Fantastic combination of flavours.

Wings are my ultimate favorite finger food, so if I see it on the menu, I have to order it. These Flightless wings (RM20.80) turned out to be extra yummeh - the crisp, deep fried chicken wings are tossed in a spicy, flavorsome ginger chilli dip.

For those who like spicy food, try the Devil's dry roast (RM19.80), a spicy dry chicken curry served with garlic naan as well as the Burnt butter steak (RM26.80), seared sliced flank steak drizzled with chilli burnt butter sauce (there's cili padi in there!).

I've tried many versions of pesto before, but Knowhere's version made with ulam (a Malay herb) is definitely a new one for me. The ulam is blended with kaffir lime to make a fragrant pesto, then tossed with spaghetti and served with cherry tomatoes and Parmesan crisp.

The highlight of our meal here was their thin crust pizza with unique toppings. Diners can request for the half and half pizza (RM36.80) - we had the Nang Nak Knowhere and Italian mutton kari and both were mighty tasty. My personal favourite was the rather unusual Nang Nak Knowhere; I never knew jackfruit would taste so good on a pizza! Great combination of Malaysian ingredients with Italian flavours. The kids, on the other hand, loved the Italian mutton kari - hot and addictively spicy.

Cocktails are also their forte; we highly recommend the Truffle Smoked Fashioned (RM38), featuring Naked Grouse Whisky sous vide and infused with white truffle, Lagavulin 16 years, Salted Caramel and Lemon Bitters.

I wanted something sweet and the Birds of Paradise (left, RM36) was recommended to me. Definitely my kind of drink, great tropical flavours. Made with Bols Genever,  Campari, Peach liquor, vanilla, coconut, passion fruit and citrus.
