You might be wondering how did Five Nines 999.99 at Keong Saik Road get their name. 999.99 is the finest form of gold and is considered the gold standard. The team at 999.99 holds themselves to this in serving food in its purest and finest form in quality, service and presentation. A pretty interesting philosophy.
We started off the meal with a refreshing plate of Tuna & Peach Salad ($14) before the mains, where both ingredients complement each other very well with savory and sweet tastes. Burrata & Tomato Salad ($14) is topped with pesto dressing and the burrata cheese is creamy, rich and simply divine.
Lobster Gratin ($29) is mixed with a creamy bechamel sauce with a crispy melted cheese topping, thankfully not too cloying.
Beef Tenderloin & Foie Gras ($29) was cooked perfectly tender with medium texture. Sadly, I still can’t appreciate the beauty of foie gras. :( One day, maybe one day.
King Prawn Kadaif Bites ($15) is wrapped with vermicelli and deep fried, paired with a tomato based sauce. The vermicelli retains its crispy texture even when the dish has been left out for quite some time. Truffle Cream Risotto & Foie Gras ($19) is my favorite dish of the day, minus the foie gras. :p The aromatic blend of truffle and cream is such a great combination that I couldn’t stop savouring it.
I have only tried swordfish sashimi thus far, Grilled Swordfish & Spring Onion ($15) caught me by surprise with its light and tender texture. The scallops from the Scallops & Cauliflower ($22) dish is lightly pan-seared to give it a nice, brown crust, topped with cauliflower puree and lotus chips.
Now onto the desserts! :) Peach Melba ($9) and Lemon Granita & Mango Panna Cotta ($8) are great for people who loves sour and refreshing desserts. Tiramisu ($8) may look simple and unattractive but the indulgently rich Italian dessert is the perfect end to any meal.
