Knuckles

It certainly brings about more choices and conveniences right to the heartland! The simplicity in the creative use of crates and wooden planks as their furnishing coupled with dim lighting has mystically give the place a casual and cozy finishing touch.

This Quasi-German bistro served a couple of traditional german foods such as German Pork Knuckles and Pork Schnitzel with the rest a medley of Western and Italian dishes such as Bangers & Mash, Steaks and Pasta. Decent choices of beer at affordable prices are available too. Food prices ranging from $8 to $12 nett and drinks prices from $4 to $8 nett!

Pork Schnitzel ($8) – A sizeable portion of a thin slice of pork cutlet that was lightly breaded with crumbs and deep fried into a golden stellar ‘pair of wings’. Despite such a thin slice of pork cutlet, each bite into it was crispy followed by firm and meaty and towards the end i’m greatly overwhelmed by the generosity of both the pork and sides.

German Pork Knuckles ($10) – Supposedly the highlight of the bistro but in comparison to the Pork Schnitzel, this plate of German Pork Knuckle accompanied with a scoop of mash and sauerkraut by the sides definitely lacks the lustre and colors. Taste wise was pretty normal and typical with the exception of sauerkraut having a smoothening effect on the rich tasting pork knuckles. Nevertheless, the tender meat with the crispy skin atop has definitely helped the dish in scoring some brownie points!

If you’re looking for decent food with a heartwarming taste at affordable prices, Knuckles Bistro is the place to satisfy your cravings! Staffs were friendly, while service may begin to slow down when the bistro gets crowded. Overall, it was quite a pleasing dining experience.
