Gone are the days where Keong Saik Road was once a sleazy red light district filled with vice activities and brothels in the 1960s. The new and present Keong Saik Road sees a complete different landscape with chic boutique hotels, hipster cafes, modern bars and restaurants.
One of the latest dining additions is 999.99 (Five Nines) a modern European restaurant opened last December at 29 Keong Saik Road. 999.99 takes its name from the purity of fine gold, and is committed to provide guests with the highest standard in food quality, service and presentation.
The restaurant exudes elegance with subtle details in gold which include the dining table, cutlery set, kitchen pipelines, wash basin, as well as the fittings – everything revolve in shades of gold.
999.99 boast a warm inviting ambience and relaxing atmosphere that offers dining and drinking by the open kitchen bar – you know you have scored the best seat in the house. For a more intimate setting, tables are set up along the side for smaller groups of guests to enjoy their conversations.
Head Chef Masanao Saito of 999.99 brings his experience in European cuisine and Japanese precision into the kitchen to create signature dishes such as the Beef Rossini, Lobster Gratin, Smokey Lamb and Eggplant, and more.
Please note that the a la carte menu is seasonal and is subject to change. The set lunch (4-course at $29) and set dinner (5-course at $59) is a good introduction to Chef Saito’s small plates and a great way to stay within budget when faced with many irresistible options on the a la carte menu.
A must-have is the Lobster Gratin, featuring a whole lobster mixed with a creamy béchamel sauce with a crisp melted cheese topping. Every day, 20 early birds will be able to purchase this dish at just $19++.
Once the 20 portions run out, the dish returns back to its regular pricing. The Lobster Gratin is also featured in the restaurant’s 2-course and 4-course set lunch menus, which are priced at $19++ and $29++ respectively.
Favourite dishes of the meal include the Tuna & Peach Salad, Lobster Gratin, King Prawn Kadaif Bites, Scallops & Cauliflower.
999.99 offers a good selection of tapas-style dishes. The portions are modest and not to mention easy on the pocket, so the idea is to order more dishes to share, then round it all off with a good tiramisu or handcrafted desserts served in an elegant martini glass.
