There’s only one purpose that drew me all the way from my home to Sunset Way - their Claypot Shark’s Fin.
The size of this claypot is good enough for 3 -4 people. There were just the two of us this time, so both my friend & I'd a few helpings of this tasty Shark’s Fin.
Dig into the claypot, you’ll find heaps of chunky fins. All these for just S$50! Isn’t this a steal?
One delicacy after another arrived. This time, it's one that is right at the top of my gourmet list – Abalone. I go weak when it comes to truffles, foie gras & abalones. I’m easily bribed by these gems. Look at this 2-head Abalone! It’s going at just S$38/piece. Where else can you find at this price? My head went into a daze the moment I sank my teeth into the mollusk & I was like in a dreamland. It’s really that good!
We also ordered the Deep-fried Cuttlefish @ S$12, which was lightly coated in salt & pepper. It’s one of the best I’ve ever tasted. Thumbs-up!
The Asparagus is also a must-try dish. The vegetable is sauteed with XO sauce & it’s simply out of this world. But @ S$16, it’s a little pricey for a vegetable dish.
Last on the list was the Fried Rice @ $10. So what’s so special about this fried rice? It’s fried with crabmeat & all 3 kinds of eggs. Yum-yum!
After eating all these, we just didn’t have room for desserts. But I get hungry very fast. So I decided to take away the Sri Lankan Crab with Egg-yolk. The 1kg crab @ S$42 is one of the cheapest I’ve come across. It’s really tasty. Only problem is, this style of cooking tends to be very dry & the meat always sticks to the shell.
Well, with reasonable prices like these, no wonder the place still draws an entourage.
