Five Nines - 999.99 for our 9th Monthsary

Super excited to try this open concept kitchen restaurant along Keong Saik Road and it was coincidentally called Five Nines (999.99) while going there for our 9th month get together dinner~

Basically, Five Nines is a Modern European restaurant which prides itself to serve guests luxury ingredients at pretty affordable prices.

my date *.*

It got quite stuffy for awhile since the whole kitchen was open-aired but we were able to see the chefs preparing all the food carefully.

Their 5 course menu available for dinner at $59.

5 Course Dinner ($59)
Course 1: Sea Bass Carpaccio
Thinly sliced sea bass, ponzu jelly, black truffle & mixed herb.
Fresh sea bass made into japanese sashimi style.

Course 2: Asparagus & Egg
White asparagus which was in season, sous vide egg, garlic mayonnaise.

Course 3: Red Snapper & Ratatouille
Pan fried snapper, ratatouille, yellow pepper puree, balsamic reduction & italian tapenade

Course 4: Choice of 
Tenderloin Steak/ Pork/Lamb & Eggplant
Pan fried lamb chops, eggplant puree, fried eggplant, pears & green pepper & horseradish jus

Course 5: Raspberry & Chocolate
flourless chocolate cake, raspberry mousse, coutis & gelato

Honestly, their 5 course menu was extensive and affordable but none of the dishes impressed me.. Unlike the online reviews I've read. Plating was nice, for example the smokey but mediocre lamb chop was served in a bell-jar before the cap was removed. Thus, I would recommend going for the ala carte from the menu like Chilled Cavier Capalleni, Beef Tenderloin & Foie Gras. Not forgetting their Lobster Gratin! Which prompted me to dine here in the first place.

Lobster Gratin ($29)
This was super delightful. The first 20 orders of the day will get this for only $19 btw! Found out when I was paying for the bill. Serving could be bigger though haha but no complains for the taste. Mixed creamy bechamel on a whole lobster with melted cheese toppings. This is actually included in their 2 or 4 course lunch as well!

Bill came up to around $100++ My treat for wills :* Perhaps I had too high expectations for the place. But I still enjoyed my night~

Our failed selfies hehehe
