Knots Cafe and Living – A Great Mix Of Food, Flowers, And Furniture
Multi-concept stores might be aplenty, but few strike a harmonious mix like Knots Cafe and Living. Food, flower, and furniture come together in this sprawling space to create an eclectic escape, away from the bustle of the city. Here, you can browse and shop the curious knick-knacks that decorate the dining area, or enjoy and purchase the various blooms and potted succulents placed around the shop – all while satisfying your growling tummy.
We had their Cheese Fries ($7.90), which left much to be desired. It looked, and tasted, very much like the coffeeshop variant you can find at most western food stalls. Thick-cut fries were modestly drizzled with cheese and mayonnaise, and it tasted as basic as it looks. We’ll say skip the fries, and jump straight to their mains.
We tried the recommended Coriander Prawn Pasta ($17.90), which came with four succulent prawns, coriander, and asparagus tossed in a garlic butter sauce. Those who are firm coriander haters will be happy to know that the coriander taste wasn’t very pronounced in this dish. It felt very much like digging into spaghetti aglio e olio, with just a slight herbaceous note from the (specks of) fresh coriander.
We also had the Scrambled Eggs in Croissant ($8.50), which was part of their weekend breakfast selection. It was a no-frills option served with a buttery croissant, scrambled eggs, and mixed greens. Aside from the misleading preposition in the dish name (scrambled eggs were served beside the croissant, not so much in), this was otherwise a decent dish with hearty portions. We would have liked it better if the eggs came slightly creamier and more custardy.
The mains that we had at Knots Cafe and Living might not be the best we’ve had, but the idyllic vibe and curious decorations make it a decent spot for lazy afternoons.
