Make sure you book in advance. Our reservation as 17:00, and by the time it hit 17:30 there were no tables to be had in the place.

They have lots of smaller rooms within the place.

Ideal for groups, for sure!

We were fortunate enough to be seated near the window with a view of 101.

Just incase you didn’t know where Singapore was ^


Putien’s Menu


Starters Platter

經典四拼 jīng diǎn sì pīn

$298

DSC05370

4 of Putien’s signature dishes, in starter form. Something to keep in mind for when you are ordering: 1 of these orders between 4 is probably the ideal number. Unfortunately, we split just one of these between 8 of us and it just wasn’t quite enough, even for a starter.

Seaweed with mini shrimp, braised bean curd, cold pigs trotter jelly (sounds disgusting, right?), and braised pig intestines. They were nice little tasters, but they didn’t have us screaming out to order the main dishes…

Laksa fried water lotus shoots

叻沙水蓮 lè shā shuǐ lián

$220

DSC05374

Tasty veggies. I’d say two plates between 8 people would be ideal.

Putien Lor Mee

莆田鹵麵 pú tián lǔ miàn

$200

DSC05375

Expect thick sauce, shrimp, veggies, chicken, and noodles. The noodles are good and the sauce is tasty. But, I can’t help but think it’s just laden with cornstarch for the thick element of the sauce, and it kinda just puts me off a bit…

Golden Cereal Prawn

金絲麥片蝦 jīn sī mài piàn xiā

$490

DSC05383(1)

Sweet, creamy, eggy, spicy, with fried shrimp. Delicious. Give. Me. More.

Bak Kut Teh

星洲肉骨茶 xīng zhōu ròu gǔ chá

$388

DSC05388

Bak Kut Teh is a Singaporean dish using pork ribs, a sack load of garlic, and various spices. Delicious, deep, rich, galicy, porky. Basically just YES in a bowl. Delicious soup.

Stir Fried Taro

酥炒芋心 sū chǎo yù xīn

$230

DSC05395

Simple, tasty, sweet, earthy. Yeh, it was pretty good, but not amazing.

Braised Tofu with Meat Sauce

肉醬豆腐燙 ròu jiàng dòu fu tàng

$180

DSC05401(1)

Definitely one of the tastier dishes. Spicy and salty braising juices, chewy and delicate tofu and all-round good flavours. Happy.

Crispy skinned whole fried chicken

脆皮蒜香雞(全雞) cuì pí suàn xiāng jī (quán jī)

$580

DSC05405

Garlicy sweetness, crispy skin, succulent meat. Very tasty!

Chilli Crab

辣椒螃蟹 là jiāo páng xiè

$1,468

DSC05422(1)

Whaaaat. Spicy sauce meets meaty crab, soaked up with deep fried steam buns. Get that shell cracker out, and dig in! The sauce is great, the crab is delicious, and you MUST order this.

Deep Fried Durian

酥炸冰心榴褳 sū zhà bīng xīn liú lián

$138

DSC05452

Deep fried Durian? Anyone fancy eating perhaps the smelliest fruit in the world? Deep fry it?

DSC05453

Crispy skin, ice cream-like durian on the inside with a sweet stinkiness (strangely tasty).

Custard filled Bun

黃金奶星包 huáng jīn nǎi xīng bāo

$98/2 buns

DSC05457

Presentation could be better…

DSC05461

奶星包 that I have had previously have oozed custard creaminess out of the center. This one, however, didn’t. I wouldn’t order this again, gimme a second hit of the Durian, instead!
