Lau Ee Home Kitchen

As the restaurant name suggests, Lau Ee Home Kitchen is a restaurant in the setting of a home. The owner actually operates the restaurant from his one-storey bungalow.

P/S: You will see his children running around in the comfort of their own home, which is quite interesting. :)

The menu is quite limited to their specialties, some of which we have ordered. As expected, since this restaurant is touted as a home fine dining restaurant, the price is slightly on the high side, especially the house special sharks fin (RM50 per pot).

Baked Crab Claw with Transparent Noodles

Fried Garlic Chicken

Baked Goose Legs with Egg Noodles

The Baked Goose Legs with Egg Noodles tasted a bit like the Baked Crab Claw with Transparent Noodles. I suspect they used the same sauce for cooking both dishes but with different ingredients. I would suggest ordering either one of the dishes, and not both.

House Special Sharks Fin Soup

The house special sharks fin soup was rather special especially when eaten with cilantro. The fragrant cilantro blended very well with the thick sharks fin soup. They also serve a special home made chili sauce with the soup

P/S: I have to admit that I did feel very guilty after the meal, considering the controversy over the practice of shark finning :(

Private Room

The Restaurant

Living Area (which happens to be their family's living area)

Indoor Garden and Koi Pond

House (cum Restaurant) Entrance

Sis paid for the meal so I didn't know how much the total bill came to. I think it was a little over RM500 for 9 pax. Happy Birthday, dad!

P/S: Please call a few days in advance to order the house special sharks fin soup as it has to be specially prepared

I think the sharks fin soup is a bit on the pricey side but the concept of home fine dining is quite interesting. :)

This is the first time have heard about Lau Ee. I think it would be bestly address them as 私房菜, a very own version of in-house/home cooking. And fine dine is way too far for them, can i put it this way?

私房菜 is very popular and pretty much supportive by medium to high income group of white collar in Hong Kong. Most of the 私房菜 owners are famous Chef, came out from hotels and bring their skill back to their home without boundaries.

In M'sia is still new, and i hope it would be mature soon in the market.

And i would prefer to taste the chef skills, uniqueness of the food and rather to eat those expensive items.

I have tried the food in Lau Ee....The price for all the food are quite worth for money..

You cannot find such similar food in Penang!

Shark's fin soup is special and the price for it is quite reasonable...
