The bar itself comes off as a contemporary spot and watering hole for folks who want to have a place to unwind after work, with good French inspired tapas to pair with. I like the ambiance, with good music, and high stools at the bar front if you’re in for the drinks, if not head to one of the long tables at the side.
KNOWHERE Eatery, Bar & Cigars serves tapas, cocktail foods, and mocktails, from pizzas to seafood salsa, chicken wings, clams and more! Read on!

Tapas & More
We kicked off the evening with some tapas to heal the soul and tummy. Starting off with some salmon was a good choice, with the Smokey Salmon being served first. Delicious roll smoked salmon served with semi dried cherry, citrus dressing and sherry caviar, my only issue was I wanted more of it!
|Smokey Salmon - RM28.80|
For the health conscious, do try out their Grilled Crudites, which consists of mixed grilled vegetables served with baba ganoush and cucumber raita dip. Personally I liked my dishes with meat. Moving on..
|Grilled Crudites - RM15.80|
Pizzas make the world go round, and we were served with three different types of pizzas, from the Carnivore Pizza to Tomato Gala, and Seafood Malaya pizza. Each has similar presentation styles, on a wooden platter. The portions were pretty generous, with the Carnivore Pizza topped with roasted chicken, beef bacon, minced beef, tomatoes, jalapenos and monty jack cheese. Good stuff, perfect to go with drinks after a long day at work.
|Tomato Gala - RM26.80|
|Seafood Malaya - RM35.80|
What a name, Flightless Wings comes on a platter filled with very flavourful chicken wings. These deep fried chicken wings were tossed with ginger chili dip, giving out an exquisite aroma and taste. It’s a tad spicy though, but really good!
|Flightless Wings - RM20.80|
Prawn Garlic Tomato Salsa
Sautéed tiger prawns with garlic and tomato salsa. Enough said, if you’re into prawns and seafood, the Prawn Garlic Tomato Salsa is a must try dish at Knowhere. The prawns were pretty fresh, which is very important in my books.
|Prawn Garlic Tomato Salsa - RM28.80|
Lime Cured Beef Tongue
Such a strong tasting dish, the Lime Cured Beef Tongue is an acquired taste. The finely sliced house-pickled beef tongue is served with spinach and onion chili jam tartine.
|Lime Cured Beef Tongue - RM26.80|
“Lala”, that’s the term I call these clams. One of my favourite seafood dish that evening, the Asari Doenjang consists of delectable clams, doenjang, coriander, chili and garlic. I like the way all the flavours came together to give out a great tasting plate of noms.
|Asari Doenjang - RM24.80|
Don’t forget to try out their range of cocktails and mocktails as well, from interestingly named Kopi Negroni to Its Nangka Thyme, Sirap Setan, and more! I personally tried the Kopi Negroni, and I must say, presentation and style-wise it takes top marks! Good to drink as well, so do explore their drinks menu when you’re at Knowhere ya!
|Kopi Negroni - RM32|
|Served with a ball of ice|
|It was a good night! :)|
