999.99 (Five Nines)
Keong Saik's newest addition is an affordable European restaurant.
Value-for-money prices and European fare may not usually go hand-in-hand, but 999.99 is set to make dining at an upscale setting a little more wallet-friendly. Go for the five-course dinner or two-course set lunch which will set you back at $59 and $19.80++ respectively. You will have a choice of mains like lamb and eggplant or tenderloin steak (dinner) or four different mains including the restaurant's signature lobster gratin (lunch). Otherwise, a la carte plates cost between $5 for starters to $29 for mains. In a precinct bursting with trendy, progressive (and costly) restaurants, this is probably as good as it gets.
This 60-seat shophouse restaurant—featuring exposed brick walls and dark leather chairs—was designed by Japanese firm Lack Land. The place draws a good crowd of Japanese expats and locals with their affordable set meals: Lunch will set you back just $29 while dinner goes for $69. They also offer a la carte dishes including mushroom risotto ($12) and king crab croquettes ($13). Drink-wise, there’s solid selection of wines to go with the food from affordable bottles like Santa Helena sauvignon blanc 2014 ($49) to celebratory bubbly (think Cristal 2007; $499).
