What started out as a no frills eatery along Kitchener Road 16 years ago has now become a one-Michelin-starred restaurant. Putien, whose ancestry traces back to its namesake city Putian in China, specialises in Heng Hwa dishes that are incredibly tasty, consistently good and MSG-free — a reliable choice for dinner with the grandparents. Start with the Stir Fried Yam (from $12.90) — golden pillows of mashed yam encased in a thin deep-fried crust, before tucking into the crowd favourite Fried Heng Hwa Bee Hoon (from $8.90). The latter uses sundried vermicelli milled by hand in Putian, manually dried under the sun and cooked for hours with pork bone broth, resulting in translucent, fine bee hoon that is silky soft and unbelievably flavourful. Another popular dish is the Putien Style “Bian Rou” Soup with Vinegar (from $13.90) — little dough pouches of pork wrapped in smooth wonton skin that you can’t stop at just one! It’s not just the delicious food that has earned Putien loyal patrons — service is speedy and the servers are mercifully attentive to water requests.
Avg Price: $25 per person
