This is a must-order main! Every strand of beehood had thoroughly soaked up the braise and this was served with a generous serving of te-kah. The small portion is good for 2 pax, with additions of sides, drinks and desserts. Having had our meal at the Jalan Besar outlet prior, we had thought the portion size would be similarly on the small side (tried crispy horfun the other time, barely enough for 2!) but were told that the large size feeds 4pax. Great that this small portion was a perfect size for two!

Not your ordinary charsiew with the typical sweet charsiew sauce, or with the typical pork cut. This is... pork cheek. Instead, Chef Joel's rendition came served with chinese peanuts (roasted), Achar and tangy sourish sauce. We loved the balanced layers of fat-meat. On the fats - they're not grossly cloying not hard-to-swallow but sorta melt-in-the-mouth. The fats basically.. burst in the month and 'melt-in-the-month' very soon after! The corners were well charred and extremely fragrant. It's glazed with a sweet sauce - homemade special I guess. It's not the ordinary red, sweet char siew sauce that one would typically expect definitely!

Putien’s signature and must-eat! Doesn’t need a lot of introduction, the food speaks for itself. It’s not the most instagrammable dish cos the essence is truly all deep within the hearty broth

Lychee pork ribs! Ordered the recommendation of the bro who hasn’t been the greatest fan of pork when he was younger. ‘Not exactly the healthiest with pork chunks deep fried, coated with luscious sweet sauce and it being highly addictive too!

Herbally prawn soup served in a bamboo container. I think Possibly steamed in the bamboo container too cos bamboo supposedly helps lock-in the taste. It comes with some goji berries and a lil’ hint of chinese wine 🍷

Fall-off-the-bone tender ribs. Super huge slab of fall-off-the-bone tender meat. Each shred of meat is well soaked with gravy that’s slightly sweet to the taste. It’s slightly steep tho! At $6.50/piece and a minimum of 2 must be ordered

Steamed cod fish in spicy sauce - well marinated and extremely well flavoured. Loving how the cod fish is filled with healthy fats. All the omega 3!

Sea cucumber and scallops! So creamy and collagen-rich! Makes me feel so glooey-smooth all over as it glides down my throat!

East meets west here! A jumbo prawn baked and drizzled in mentaiko sauce. Decadent, sweet and juicy. Do note a waiting time of 30-40mins is required as each order is baked to perfection on the spot!

My favourite for the day! Unlike typical “coffee pork ribs” which can taste rather artificial at most places, the ones here are succulent, tender and vvvv fragrant - real coffee, without the annoying artificial strong after taste of coffee essence (so yes you get the real deal here!). The pork ribs are a good balance of lean vs fatty meat - chunky and incredibly satisfying. Comes with a sprinkle of almond flakes too!

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring ‘em all!
