朴实的兴化菜

少了一份粤菜的精致却多了一份朴实,少了一些客家菜的豪迈却多了几分亲切。莆田的ala carte buffet选择众多, 有海鲜, 肉类,小抄,主食和沌汤羹, 而价格也十分和理(周末成人午餐只需$31.90++)。

除了有许多美味的佳肴可任点,餐厅一旁也有许多小菜,茶水和甜品等待人饮用。盐水鸡肉质有点硬,令我感到有些失望。但糖醋排骨却十份美味。 



莆田沿海,兴化人善于烹调海鲜。在各类海鲜佳肴中,我最喜欢菊花鱼,它不但餐排美观鱼肉也炸到香脆而不失鱼肉的鲜甜。

精致的蒜香元贝也是另一道必点好菜,这菜利用了东粉吸收干贝汁的鲜甜。每人只限一份的巴西菇炖蕃鸭,有一股浓郁的菇味,很是特别。沙律海鲜卷听和吃起来感觉都十分摩登而南乳鸡翅就负有传统美味。

药膳竹筒虾是莆田的招牌菜, 药材的轻香可影影绰绰在虾肉和虾壳之间尝到。虾和虾汤在竹筒里, 真是卖相实十足。

辣汁花蛤XO酱爆鱼榔都是辛辣的佳肴。我比较喜欢那嫩而不失咬劲的蛤, 厨师用了大量的绍兴酒来提升蛤的鲜甜。

老实说我不知道三鲜滑豆腐的海鲜去了哪,也吃不出任何兴化菜的风格。不过,我很喜欢这软滑的豆腐。若有机会我一定会再点这道富有煮炒风味的小菜。

另一道很有本地煮炒风味的菜式就非黑椒鹿肉模数了。我并不常吃红肉但这盘鹿肉采用许多黑椒,青葱和姜,很软很香并没有什红肉的骚味。好吃!

比起上几道菜, 荷叶干蒸鸡腿算是非常逊色。鸡肉没有任何味道,让我有种浪费卡路里的滋味。



要吃兴化菜哪少得了米粉呢。我喜欢这道浓郁的兴化米粉, 经过火候适当的干抄使米粉很入味。

甜点并非兴化菜的强项,莆田的餐后甜点种类繁多。不过,我实在太饱了没有好好的欣赏它们。莆田装璜简单底调却不缺舒适大方。这样好的菜,这样大众化的价格,这样轻松的用餐环境,这证明不一定要奢华才能吃得开心。

Quality Buffet

Their prices may be a little steep for their alacarte so do go for their buffet which is definitely worthwhile and much more affordable. This outlet can be crowded sometimes on weekends but relatively comfortable still with its large full length windows looking out!

Buffet

Was there for their lunch buffet and price per person after tax came up to about $25-$30,which was quite worth it , considering usually their ala carte items if you order is quite expensive.The buffet line here is semi-alacarte,you can order from the menu as well as select items from the counter they had.Some of the must trys include lychee stiry fry meat,steamed prawns and fish.It would be better if they have faster service in clearing the tables and serving the food.

No longer serving buffets

Brought my parents there for lunch and was surprised the usual crowds were not hoovering around the front. Sat down in a rather empty Putien without waiting and was told that they NO LONGER SERVED BUFFETS.

What a disappointment!

We proceeded to order their usual signature dishes and my goodness, how those dishes have gone on a diet. The portions are painfully smaller and the medium sized bee hoon that used to amply fill up 4 people hardly filled up 2 now. Pathetic.And having a waitress constantly asking you to order an over priced steam fish (you will usually find chinese restaurants doing that cos they charge REALLY EXPENSIVE prices for steam fish, foreigners beware! ) is really annoying.

However, the quality remains but the value is disappointing now.

Putien, what happened?

buffet lunch

First time at City Square Mall, and first time trying out Putien. Went at about 12+, and the place seemed fairly busy. I walked right in, as my friends were already seated. As per mentioned by previous reviewers, there are open counters which the customers can help themselves to. Cold appetisers (~2 bites portion), some simple deep fried snacks of yam, sweet potato and fish stick. Dessert counter with 2 types of cakes, jelly, mochis and fruits. For drinks, there's a coffee machine (mocha, latte, black coffee and tea tarik) and a soft drink dispenser. Tea bags and hot water are available as well.

We tried some appetisers, soups, deep fried items, meats, beancurds/vege, steamed fish, hing wa bee hoon, desserts and drinks. For appetisers, the cold herbal chicken (that looked like steamed white chicken pieces) was very very tough.

In general, I found that the food seasoning here is not too heavy-handed and that is a good thing. Items that I really liked are the duck soup, deep fried trotters, tofu and the cakes.

Service was fair, and the wait-staff were courteous. Staff were efficient with empty plates cleared often. Food was served fairly quickly, and our table was always laden with food! Last order for lunch is at 230pm.
