LauEE Home Kitchen Fine Home Dining

Took my grandma, mom and dad to a nice Shark's fin place in celebration of my dad's birthday :)

It's a very private home dining where prior reservation needs to be made, but we'll soon find out why it's all worthwhile.
I was so worried that I couldn't find the place but I found it at last :D

Apparently my
Sar Chek (third uncle) frequents this place quite often and brought my grandma and my dad along previously, but this place operated from a bungalow at Pulau Tikus.

The very tastefully decorated interior......... This is kinda like the 'signature' of the owner's 'home', as with his previous bungalows

Table setting

Vinegar and home made chilli sauce that the owner claimed goes well with anything from shark's fin to noodles

Cilantro leaves to go with shark's fin later

We ordered...

2 pots of Large Braised Shark's Fin (RM 50 each)

These were served in boiling hot claypots and were just marvelous - check out the ample shark's fin within.. genuinely good stuff! I normally have my shark's fin with green chillies but we tried with the home made chilli sauce and it was like a match made in heaven - the chilli sauce was so spicy!

Crab Claw Tang Hoon Noodles (RM 35)

The crab claws were huge and it was easy to consume too, given the fact that only the claws were left covering the crab meat and the rest are readily exposed. The crab meat were very fresh and were not overcooked even with the tang hoon noodles together. One thing to note is this dish had strong pepper fragrance to it and it had loads and loads of garlic cloves underneath all the tang hoon

Goose Legs Noodle (RM 30)

When we ordered this goose legs dish, we did not realize that it came with noodles as well, if we knew we would most probably ordered something else that did not come with noodles. Nevertheless, the goose legs were soft and flavorful and unlike the ones we had at Red Bali before. Too bad we did not enjoy the noodles that much because we were all pretty stuffed with the tang hoon from the crab claws dish.

We all loved the home made chilli sauce - even my dad who's pro in consuming cabai etc found it to be extremely spicy and had to stop half way

Thai Fruit Jelly Dessert (RM 8 each)

After all the 'heavy' mains we had and the spiciness built-up within us from the chilli, we initially wanted to have Bubur Cha Cha but we were told that we had to pre-order them so that they would be freshly prepared. So we ended up ordering 2 thai jellies to be shared and they were very timely indeed. The cool and chillness of the jellies were comforting and did a good job ending our sumptuous meal :)

The bill came to RM 181 for 4 pax - about RM 45 per pax for fine home dining shark's fin :)

If you're looking for a home style yet fine dining private setting for a nice pig out of the best of the best - this is the place to be.
