999.99 Five Nines is one of the newer openings along Keong Saik road which is slowly getting more hippy. One thing that caught my attention was the rather pocket-friendly pricing. We had the Oyster Ajillo ($9) and King Crab Croquettes ($9) as starters. The oysters were plump and juicy, taste fresh as well. King Crab croquettes were freshly fried with crispy crumb batter.
Ordered the Lobster Gratin as we thought it was really a steal at $26, we were pleasantly surprised to find out when our bill came that we were amongst the first 20 diners to order the dish and it was therefore charged at $19! Admittedly it wasn’t that huge but we were satisfied with being able to enjoy rather affordable lobster meat.
Chilled Caviar Cappellini with Truffle Oil $19 was also rather affordable granted that there was a spoonful of caviar topping the dish. The pasta was al-dente and nicely done.
Tiger Prawn Risotto $22 was slightly disappointing due to its portion. Just didn’t seem as value-for-money as the other items we ordered.
Ending our meal with Lemon Granita & Mango Panna Cotta $8 which was refreshingly sweet.
