One more restaurant at Keong Saik Road, 999.99 Five Nines Restaurant. Keong Saik Road is a street that is densely populated with eateries, restaurants. At every few steps, surely you will spot a eating outlet. I am not sure what was previously occupied at the 999.99 Five Nines Restaurant unit. I won’t be surprise if it was some restaurant that closed down.
I was curious why the restaurant was named 999.99 Five Nines Restaurant. Hence I inquired with the friendly service crew, Channel (hope I spelled her name correctly). The reason was that the owner was previously in the precious metal industry and 999.99 is the purest form of metal one would get. I suppose, they wanted to symbolize how perfectionist the restaurant is.
It was pretty easy to spot the restaurant as there was a neon light signage of its name 999.99 Five Nines at the facade. The restaurant has a set up more like a bar with the bar counter as the main feature.
I visited the restaurant with my Mom on Christmas Day for lunch. They were serving 2 menu, a 2-Course Set Lunch Menu and a Special Christmas Set Lunch Menu. We went for one each.
For both course, first we were served the Pumpkin Soup. It was pretty sweet and that was what my Mom didn’t appreciate while I did. I like the way it was.
Next was the Duck Breast Salad. I was surprise not to see any green when it was named salad. Instead the duck breast was sat on a few wedges of potato. We enjoyed this dish. It was simple but no doubt delish.
Next I have the Beef Rossini which was on the Christmas Set Lunch. It was such a luxurious plate of Mains. The pan fried striploin beef was topped with foie gras and truffle. At the bottom was Potato Puree and Satueed Spinach. This was fitting for a Christmas meal. I enjoyed though I thought if they could use a more premium piece of steak that would have been perfect.
My Mom chose Lobster Gratin With Salad. Beside the salad, there were some fries. I was surprised to find out how value for money was the 2 course-set lunch. There were indeed lobster pieces in the gratin. I didn’t appreciate the fries as it was soaked with oil.
Lastly the Bouche Noel, the last course was served. A Chocolate Sponge & Hazelnut Mousse with Vanilla Cream. There were some raspberry sauce on the plate which exalted the cake roll.
The coffee was a dark roast, full body with very low acidity and mainly nutty and some burnt caramel undertone.
Personally, I thought the meal at 999.99 Five Nines Restaurant was value for money.
