The interior of Ninety Nine is elegant with the concept of colonialism and yet, it is cozy and dining here is comfortable for the soul, tummy, and wallet. Surrounded by Ranch supermarket, I like to stroll and do some grocery shopping in the hope of shedding some fats away. Anyhow it's nice to take a walk after dining. I think the high ceiling also creates a great atmosphere as it gives a good flow of air and the place looks bright.
The food is surprisingly good! I tried the foei gras hokkien mie and I am impressed! The hokkien mie is cooked to perfection, still chewy and not too soft. The taste is very authentic, reminding me of delicious hokkien mie served in Singapore. Then I took another spoon with a piece of foei gras. Delicious! I would like to compliment whoever came up with the idea of putting a classy touch of foei gras in this hokkien mie. Perfect fusion and the pairing is genius. Another one of their recommended item is their foei gras fried rice. I'll order that next time.
Crispy pork knuckle over butter rice. Once again, authentic taste with a touch of great fusion. I'm not a big fan of rice or butter rice but this one makes me digging for another spoon after another. The pork is crispy outside as it should be and the meat is soft and tasty. Once again, I fall in love with the dish here.
Those two were the recommended items and since I was craving for some poached eggs, I tried their poached egg with grilled salmon over waffles. This dish was good but not perfect. The salmon and poached eggs was overcooked. The dressing on top of the poached eggs deserves an extra credit though. Unlike the typical overload of mayonaise in Indonesian restaurants, the dressing is creamy but not heavy. I think this dish would be a two-thumbs up if the egg and salmon is done properly.
