From its name, derived from a number significant to Islam, to the guiding values that form the acronym QURAN, 99 Bistro & Kitchen is rife with layers of meaning that would especially appeal to Muslim diners. This halal joint provides the kind of bistro space that’s excellent for takeaways, quick meals, and casual gatherings.
Fill up on an earthy Porcini Veloute or share guilty pleasures like Buffalo Wings, Roti John Istimewa, and Cheese Fries. Western options include Pasta Carbonara Classic and Barbeque Pizza, but we’re all for indulging in heartier mains such as the Crispy Skin Salmon, Herb Breaded Halibut, and Braised Lamb Shank. On the more Asian side of things, nothing gives depth quite like food that’s been tossed around in a wok! Mee Goreng Istimewa, Penang Char Kway Teow, Nasi Goreng Warung – these aren’t for the faint of heart. We like 99 Bistro & Kitchen’s earnest approach to cooking and unpretentious atmosphere, so if that sounds like your idea of fun, mark it down right quick! (Apr 2016)
