Izakaya 95 – 居九五

Konichiwa!

There are various eateries at “The Punggol Settlements” you have all the seafood restaurants occupying the ground floor and on the second floor you have the boutique restaurants/cafes.

Izakaya 95 caught my eye, a Japanese restaurant located on the second floor. They serve yakitories, a variety of Japanese dishes with an array of booze from draught beers on tap to Sake take your pick. 

Izakaya 95

Ambiance is chill and relaxed, the all black decor, tea lights in lamps on the table gives the place a cool Japanese hipster kind of feel to it.
Come early to snag a nice table along the veranda to enjoy the sunset and a view of containers/shipping at Pasir Gudang, Malaysia. If your lucky you might see fireworks too (don’t ask why there are fireworks am not sure either).

Family Time
 

Overall, all the plates are tasty, flavorful, and consistent. There are plenty of choices to choose from but it can be a little overbearing when it’s the first time seeing the menu.

Fresh & thick slices of Salmon Sashimi ~ SGD12

 

Kawa Ebi ~ SGD10
 
 

Yakitori Platter ~ SGD14
Tori Reba (chicken liver) ~ SGD3
Mentai Cheese Fries ~ SGD12

The sake that we chose was extremely smooth, clean, crisp, light body with unami and nicely soft sweetness. A perfect food sake that is complementary to the flavors in the food.
 

Hakurakusei Tokubetsu Junmai Sake ~ SGD90
 

The service staff are friendly, attentive, cordial and efficient for how busy it was. Food comes out at a good pace. 

Foie Gras ~ SGD 10 per skewer

 
Suntory Beer on Tap
 

Girls’ Night Out ~ Night Cap

I have since been here twice once with the family and the second with friends. Its a great place to chill out, relax and unwind after a tough day/week with family or friends.

Thank you for reading.

Punggol Point

Punggol Point has a small stretch of beach, across from it lies Pasir Gudang, Malaysia. The close proximity to Malaysia is unbelievable.  

 

At the jetty we saw lots of people fishing, families having picnics on the grass patch and kids building sandcastles along the beach.

The water is so clear you could see many crabs scurrying on the sand bed. Natasha got really excited when she saw the crabs and wanted to catch them unfortunately they were too fast to be caught.

A nice weekend hangout away from the hustle and bustle of city life. A place to be close to mother nature.
