Home > Chinese, Singapore > Putien


Walked pass this restaurant several times in the past couple of years. The restaurant was always packed with customers and ridiculous queue numbers. Got close to trying it the other weekend but opted for Soup Restaurant which was right beside Putien. This place sure gets crowded… got there at about 6.25pm and had a good 40 mins wait. Putien has been around for a really long while and I finally got to try it with my folks. J been there once several years ago.

J suggested the Drunken Cockle which she had tried with her friends before several years ago. She doesn’t eat Cockle in Char Kway Teow at all, but she likes this dish served there. That says alot about the Drunken Cockle in Putien!

Drunken Cockle

Putian fresh cockles in a wine marinade and topped with fresh garlic and chillies. It sure tasted pretty good!

Shredded Meat with Bun

This looked like a variation of the Kong Bak Pau that we usually eat but the bread is deep fried and there were sesame seeds on the bread. Unique.

Spinach with Salted Egg & Century Egg in Supreme Stock
A pretty normal chinese restaurant fare.

Anyway some history on the origins of the restaurant Putien roots traced back to Putian, Fujian province of China. According to my dad, the owner missed his local fare, Heng Hwa Cuisine, from China and couldn’t find it in the area. He wanted to share his comfort food to the locals and thus started up the restaurant back at Kitchener Road. They expanded pretty quickly and added restaurants at Vivocity, Marina Square, Tampines Mall, Jurong Point, Parkway Parade, City Square Mall and also Nex.

Claypot Sea Cucumber with Chestnut

This felt like a normal zichar dish.

Deep Fried Chicken with Garlic

Thumbs up!

The food was indeed pretty good and affordable! Liked everything that we ordered. Special mention for the drunken cockle and the deep fried chicken with garlic. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t done so! As we left, we had a short chat with the lady at the counter who mentioned that the Braised Beancurd with Chinese Cabbage, Claypot Fish Soup, Fried “Hing Wa” Bee Hoon and Putien Lor Mee are really popular choices. Will definitely be back to check that out!
