Part of the Castelo concepts group, KTown is aptly named after its home Kennedy Town. This diner serves rustic Italian dishes with Asian influences, featuring a modern industrial design. Conveniently located just a few steps away from the Kennedy Town  MTR station, it can quickly become a popular hang-out for University students.

Unfamiliar with the area and feeling hungry and thirsty, we settled down at KTown Bar & Grill. ‘Cocktails!’ we all thought, and quickly waved down a waiter for the drinks menu. We decided on a Pimm’s and the in house special Bloody Mary.

The pimms was very refreshing, fruity and not too sweet. Cubes of raseberries, apple, cucmber and orange make a summery drink and add some bite. Bloody Mary was like the name, bloody and muddy. It was hard to stomach and was too salty and spicy.

After a few drinks, hunger striked. A burger and pasta came to mind. The K-town burger was a fair portion with fresh vegetables and a choice of cheese. We chose the blue cheese to go with a well-seasoned and meaty burger. Good for absorbing all that alcohol and couples well with a cold beer. A classic, no fuss burger. Then came the crab linguinie. Simple presentation though definitely not a simple dish! A generous serving of crab meat mixed in with linguinie, and dressed in olive oil and herbs. A perfect dressing to allow the crab to stand out.

Verdict: 

A cute bistro in an up and coming area. Food and service are good, though the drinks are only average. If K-town improves on their cocktails and keep up quality of the food, it can become a great dining destination.
