The first time i been to Ninety - Nine at Grand Indonesia Shopping Town, suddenly i remember about three things: Cool wine bar, wonderful tiles on the floor, and the fact that every single dishes that they served here was a great one. When i returned again, that feelings suddenly comes in. I can feel at this moment, they gonna launch something special in front of me. Yes, yes, they gonna launch some new menu for sure. After having a great conversation with the store manager, it's time to taste the food. Let's find out something new here!
First time i visit this place, the ambience is really nice and warmth. I really love how they dressed this place to be looks fancy at the one side, and looks comfort on the other side. I could spend less than 3 hours here.
They call this as the appetizer, and for me it's really suitable with that category. A fresh scallops has been cooked really well, the texture it's just chewy and dense. I really love how they cooked that scallops, but unfortunately that lemon sauce not really tasty at all. I can't feel that great sauce works really well to boost up the flavour of that scallops, the only things that i know here is a great texture of scallops.
Louisiana Crab Cakes
This is the most simple presentation of a dish that i've ever taste lately. But surprisingly, behind that minimalist presentation, you gonna feel a very crispy and crunchy texture on the outside of that crab cakes and a rich of flavour on the inside of it. Especially, they has been added a special wasabi sauce on the side of it. But unfortunately it's not works really well. Just taste the original version of this crab cakes and i bet you gonna love it!
Salad is essential for this restaurants. Not because the presentation or even the flavour, but mostly the customer who came to this place is tourists and overseas citizens, so they probably start a new day by having a light dishes like this. Actually this Caesar Salad is quite good, a simple dressing and minimalist flavour could entertain you for a while.
Wagyu Rossini Burger
This is INSANE! A superior charcoal burger with an extremely layer of wagyu beef, foie grass, mushroom, vegetables, and mushrooms definitely lifting up your dining experience in this spot. A wagyu beef is so juicy and tender, and surprisingly that foie grass taste so great as well. Totally love it!
Braised Beef Cheeks
First time i look at this dish, i feel more doubt to taste it. Because the presentation is too simple and the calories is too high for sure. But at the last, i still taste it. Single spoon of it is entertaining, second spoon is so tasty, and the third spoon i'm just asking for more PORTION. Definitely worth the calories!
Crispy Pork Knuckle
To be honest, this is quiet spicy. Behind that crispy layer, you gonna find a line of blackpepper sauce that's totally boost up the flavour of this dish. Actually the pork is quiet dry, but that crispy layer it's just too good to be true! I love spicy food, so this dish really fit me at the moment.
Bebek Bakar Cabai Hijau
Local food always be the BEST! That duck is totally tender and juicy, and a simple dressing using green chilli totally boost up the flavour along with the presentation of it. I really love how they cooked that duck, especially the additional crispy topping on the side of it quiet entertaining for sure. Definitely must try!
Baked Chicken Breast
Some of my blogger friends told me, that this dish is quiet flat and not tasty at all. But after i try it, i just proof it wrong. The chicken is so tender, juicy and tasty. An additional topping using enoki mushroom such a very good deal to create a wonderful texture of it. Especially while grilled that chicken, they has been added a garlic and some little touch of spices to let that meat absorb all the flavour of it. Definitely my favourite guys!
Banana Nutella Crepes
Who doesn't love Nutella?! I think every single person in this world gonna love that kind of chocolate, so do i. The crepe is simply soft and light which is blend really well with the banana and nutella topping inside of it. I know this dessert could fill my whole day calories for a while, but i can't resist this for sure. It's totally sweet and full of chocolate!
Oreo Lemon Cheesecakes
Move on to another one, this Oreo Lemon Cheesecakes is pretty satisfying in terms of texture and flavour. It's simply dense and balanced of flavour. I can feel, there are a lot of potential to increase the quality of this dessert, but for me this dessert is really enjoyable for a while.
Pink Lychee Iced Tea
From two different beverage, i would say that the Pink Lychee Iced Tea has been attract me for sure. A wonderful pink colour of it and a pieces of marshmallow on top of it totally ADORABLE. Maybe it's too sweet to be honest, but i really love how Ninety - Nine modify their beverage menu to be cute and unique. It's pretty entertaining!
Toasted Marshmallow Cocktail
I wouldn't say marshmallow is the best, but to be honest both of them it's just too good enough to be tasted by you. The marshmallow one is quiet unique and sweet which is really different with the toblerone one. If you talk about the toblerone, it's simply full of chocolate and mostly every woman gonna love this for sure. It's just back on you to decide which one is your favourite. But for me, i really love the Toblerone one. Because of CHOCOLATE!
At the last, i would say Ninety - Nine it's just a very great deal for everyone outside there to enjoy a very appetising meal and some delightful cuisine. The portion maybe too big, but it's really suitable to fit your big tummy folks. Let's try!
