Teppei Group opens Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant–Must visit for Unagi lovers!

Teppei Group will be opening a new restaurant on 12 October 2016 called Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant. Yes, that’s the Teppei where you have to make reservations 6 months in advance to eat their Omakase. And no prizes for guessing that the delectable Unagi (aka grilled eel) will be taking centre-stage at this restaurant.

999.99 (Five Nines) – Best beef tenderloin and lamb chops

It’s not often that I come across a restaurant with this many laudable dishes, but yes, nearly every single thing that I tried at 999.99 (Five Nines) at Keong Saik street was delicious and memorable. What sort of weird name is Five Nines, you may ask. Well, 999.99 is the finest form of gold and is considered the gold standard. The team at 999.99 holds themselves to this gold standard in the food that they serve, be it quality, service or presentation. Five Nines is helmed by Chef Masanao Saito, where his previous experience included being Head Chef of the Japanese Embassy in Sweden, serving Japanese Kaiseki and French cuisine to dignitaries.

Let’s cut to the chase and let me tell you which dishes to order to maximise your dollar. Without a doubt, do not leave Five Nines without ordering either the Smoky Lamb with Eggplant, the Beef Tenderloin and Foie Gras, or the Lobster Gratin. These 3 were absolutely mind blowing.

Burnt Ends

Once in a while, I come across a gem of a restaurant that is so worthy of being mentioned and shared with the world that I’ve decided to bump it up the queue and write about it asap. Interestingly, if not for my foodie friends who organised this makan session, Burnt Ends would not have featured in my radar so I am really thankful for having made the acquaintance of Burnt Ends!

Burnt Ends is a modern Australian barbeque offering seating at the countertop table looking directly into the open kitchen. The reason why I said Burnt Ends would not have been my first port of call is because comfortable seating is extremely important to me. Food is of course important, but to be able to enjoy it in comfort, without having to fret about a confined space, and being able to face my dining companions, those are important factors for me too. Buttttt, having said that, we enjoyed the food here so much, I’m willing to say that I’ll forgo the comfort again for another chance at that lovely Pulled Pork cheese burger and the lamb!

As you can tell from the name, Burnt Ends also specialises in barbequing, smoking, slow roasting and cooking directly on coals. Check out those said coals in the picture above!

Burnt Ends - Smoked Quail Eggs $6

Started off our meal with these Smoked Quail Eggs $6. 1 egg $1, not a bad pricing for a restaurant. You won’t believe these eggs, they look like normal quail eggs, but the minute you bite into them, this wonderful smoky flavour envelopes your tongue, it’s almost as if they’d injected smoky soup into where the yolk would have been!
