really good heng hwa food at this crowded outlet

hotos and more: http://andmorefood.wordpress.com/2013/06/14/putien-restaurant-serangoon/   I rather like the putien chain – the flavours are light but intense, and while service can get rather hectic when full-house, it’s efficient and earnest when you do get it. highly reliable, consistently delicious, and a large enough menu to return frequently (though we do have our favourites, of course).   we started with jellyfish – decent, though I’ve had better. the better starter was their fried century egg: wedges fried up in a crispy batter and tossed in a sweet-sour sauce; this was delicious.   the salt and pepper clams are addictive, and the beancurd with kailan are a must order. the beancurd sheets are wrapped to a satisfying thickness – so they bite al-dente and the flavour of the soya bean comes through.   but my favourite really is their squirrel fish. essentially a filleted fish fried to a golden-brown and topped with a sweet and sour sauce. it’s completely, and utterly delicious – the fish is fresh and moist, the batter stands up fantastically to the sauce, which is enlivened by the tiny bits of vegetables strewn atop. I have massive cravings for this fish.   the meat dishes are pretty good home-cooking too. we finished the meal with a fruit platter and syruped loquats – I’m not one for syrupy things but the latter were very interesting.   honest cooking, good prices, decent portions and highly consistent standards even across outlets – and I have a soft spot for regional chinese cooking (much of what we have locally is more generally cantonese than anything else).

Putien is a good choice for good quality Chinese food and it is suitable for family gathering.       The Putien chilli sauce is tasty and goes well with the Heng Hwa beehoon. It is available for purchase off the counter.     Heng Hwa Beehoon (M) portion was good for three people.   The iced abalone ($13.90) was well marinated and tender, served in a nicely decorated glass bowl.   Praises for the dishes –  sweet and sour pork, tofu & the spinach with century eggs in supreme stock.   The staff was polite and cheerfu. Service was pretty good except they forgot about the fish broth and served it after we finished our food.

What can I say? Pu Tien's food is simply awesome.

All the must-try dishes did not disappoint. We had the Pu Tien Bee Hoon, Deep Fried Tenggiri Fish and a few others.

The Bee Hoon was my favourite dish. It was very light but very rich in flavor. I could eat it everyday and not get sick of it.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
