Eighty9 @ SS3 Petaling Jaya

March 13, 2017

Founded by three longtime friends Dinesh, Sam & Reagan, Eighty9 telegraphs a sense of playful personality through its menu - bak-kut-teh-inspired pork ribs with herbal nuances come paired with sour Chinese cabbage & pan-fried mushrooms in a neat twist on BKT (RM29), while a cream of watercress soup with salty-smoky dynamics (RM9) & deep-fried dumplings stuffed with crab meat, crab sticks & house-made citrus-laced ricotta cheese (RM12) deliver interesting reinterpretations of flavours thatll feel both familiar & fresh; wash down with a sawi-nanas blended beverage or wine. Service is warm & prices are fair, making Eighty9 a nice example of a worthwhile neighbourhood restaurant. Trivia: The outlets name marks the birth year of its owners.
