Putien was mistaken as a Japanese restaurant by yours truly. It is definitely a Chinese restaurant. But hey! It’s interior gave me a Japanese feel, what can I do?
Anyway, let me tell you about my experience in Putien, Marina Square, Singapore. It was actually fine for a first-timer. They had different sizes of their dishes. What a perfect way to save money and not waste food. Although the place wasn’t spacious at all, I even saw customers requesting for the tables outside since it was spacious there. Ok, the photos.
See? A mix of Japanese and Chinese feel? Now, I’m confused. OK. ORIENTAL?
While we were waiting for our food to be served, I took photos of what took my attention. The photo above shows you their special slash original recipe for their spice. Below, you can see what’s inside.
It smelled so good when I took the little lid off. But I am not a fan of chili.
Their little mug..
And eventually our orders came rushing by.. this was what I had as a drink. I think it’s Sour sop? or Passion fruit? My dad ordered it for me.
Intestines..not sure if these were of a pig’s, but these sure tasted like no other! 4/5!!
Mazhou mian. More like a different version of fried noodles, but tastier. There’s a story behind this little dish!
I don’t know what this dish is called (sorry, I wasn’t the one who ordered but I’ll make sure I’ll take note of the dishes’ names next time!), but these are made of Taro, and they sure taste like Chicken. Wish I ordered some more! This was my favorite throughout the whole meal. Still craving for this.
Plain old boring, I guess. Since I’m Chinese and I get to eat this a lot when we go abroad. But, these were also good..
Garlic Chicken that didn’t even let me taste the ‘GARLIC’ part of it. Flawless but tasteless.
All in all, the bill was 96 SGD(which costs around 3k+ here). For me, it wasn’t worth it, but overall, the experience was good, maybe a 3/5, but a 5/5 for the Taro dish (ha ha ha). Would I go back? Maybe for the Taro dish, Mazhou Mian, and the Intestines.
