Voted as one of Singapore’s best 50 restaurants,Putien has carved a niche for itself offering authentic Heng Hwa cuisine in our island city-state, aided by a superior reputation and an intrinsic desire to provide heart-warming comfort food for globetrotting city slickers.
The waiter has recommended us to try their signature Heng Wah fried bee hoon & lor mee and we liked the herbal bamboo prawns and the exquisite golden flower fish. It was my first time eating the cold bitter gourd slice with honey syrup dip and the taste was very refreshing. Another side dish that has impressed me was the drunken cockle with cockles deshelled and marinated. next time would probably try out their set meal :)
Putien is one of the fine dining chinese restaurant in Singapore. To me, the price is relatively quite high and expensive, where they offer food around same standard as other chinese restaurant. I would say the food are more well decorated and presented. In terms of food taste, it is generally not much difference from normal chinese restaurant. However, i do compliment their restaurant for taking effort in controlling everything just nice for the food, like temperature, they will make sure that it is not too hot when served, but luke warm.
The signature here is the Fried Heng Hwa Bee Hoon. Laden with min seafood like clams and prawns, mushrooms, pork belly strips, beancurd and crunchy greens, the simply noodles blossomed into a bright noodles with the chilli sauce. Among the Chinese in Singapore, the Hing Wa ethnic group is one of the smaller and lesser known ones. Well, its home cooked food that employs simple ingredients with very light seasoning. Most of the dishes that I have tasted are more towards the bland side but it kinda feels like a healthy meal.
