The secret to falling in love with Putien lies in the chilli

To see the photos, please go to http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/06/putien-vivocity.html

The secret to loving Putien's Heng Hwa cuisine lies in their proprietory chilli sauce, a blend of the sour, salty, sweet and one kind of stomach-churning spicy. Like the fairy dust that makes Tinkerbell fly, this wonderful concoction is the magic that makes the their so-very-delicate, almost bland, fare come alive.

We had:

1) Fried Heng Hwa Bee Hoon ($8.90 for small): Laden with miniaturized seafood like clams and prawns, mushrooms, pork belly strips, beancurd and crunchy greens, the plain-ish noodles blossomed into a bright punchy mee with copious lashings of the chilli sauce. 

2) Putien Lor Mee ($8.90): also laced with pork belly, prawns and clams, but braised in a lusciously thick but mellow pork-based broth. This also got a much needed punch from the chilli sauce.

3) Homemade Beancurd ($9.90) - with silky egg beancurd logs with black mushrooms, carrots and sugar snap peas and smothered in a velvety oyster sauce gravy: good on its own and didn't quite need the chilli. But, it was still lovely when spiced with it. 

4) Stir Fried Chestnut ($13.90) - with straw mushrooms and pork slices: The luscious nutty gravy was tasty enough on its own, but definitely lifted a notch by the robust chilli sauce.

5) Crispy Pork Ribs ($16.90): the Heng Hwa version of Cantonese sweet & sour pork; distinguished with the addition of crunchy water chestnuts. 

6) Shredded Meat with Buns ($3.90 per pc) - pork strips stir fried with caramelized onions, complemented by deep fried golden sesame-d buns: the only dish that rendered the chilli sauce redundant. Rich and flavoursome, the pork buns were totally scrumptious. 

7) Putien-Style Century Egg ($5.90): similar to Cantonese sweet and sour pork: I usually shy away from century egg (can't stand the smell), but I was surprised by how much I liked this. The Putien treatment of century egg was really quite awesome, and I'd definitely order this agai

Expanding from a single coffee-shop styled eatery to 9 restaurants , Putien is certainly doing very well. The chain specialises in Heng hwa cuisine, a sub-category of Chinese cuisine with roots linked back to

Putien has always given me the impression of the place to be for family reunions.

I have never complained about a dish of Fried Egg Plant with Pork Floss ($13.90)- it's just too safe a choice that it'

Good food and good price!

Pu Tien serves really good food at very reasonable prices. For so much and a bowl of rice, we only paid $70 for two people. Even though there were two big eaters, we couldn't finish the noodles. I was very pleased with all the dishes and our favourite two are the bao and noodles. I also like the
