Pu Tien

I have been racing against time recently. So do pardon my irregular postings. Due to time constraints, I decided not to post some of the moderate / not-so-tasty food. Here's one of the better restaurants I've been to recently. Enjoy!

Homemade Beancurd (9/10)

You will never go wrong by ordering this dish.

Sweet and Sour Pork in lychee (9/10)

The additional ingredient - lychee makes a difference! In novelty and in enhancing the flavour. Alas, there were some fatty meat in the dish - else it would be a perfect 10.

Spinach in salted egg and century egg in supreme stock (8/10)

Herbal Prawns (9/10)

I wanted to take photo in the bamboo container but my brother was too quick to ask the waitress to dish the contents in bowls for all of us. :P I love the soup even though it's herbal, something I usually don't like to take. Almost every table had this dish. Enough said huh? :)

Take note of the name. There are many Pu Tien's in Singapore. Some are its outlets, some are just... you know lar... :P In fact, there's another Pu Tien within a 2 minute walking distance from this one. It's not too difficult to judge which is the better one. One has a huge crowd and probably a queue at the entrance. The other has many empty tables. :P

$86 for four persons


127 Kitchener Road
Singapore 208514
(Prepare for some walking if you are going there by MRT. You will pass by the 'imitation' restaurant first...)

Jaime: You should go try! ;) I thought $80+ for four is rather reasonable. I did reserve a table. In fact, I would advise you to do so too. I went there on a weekday and the restaurant was full!

Looking forward to your review on Pu Tien!

Thanks, Finay! :)

No updates? :)

Daniel said...

Yes, I do agree with you. It's one of my fav places to dine in.

Hi Jaime, I think reservations is strongly recommended! It was full house when I arrived... and it was a weekday! Quality wise, I would say it's not bad! Worth a try! ;)

Ok, silly me. It's really been a long time. I actually replied to the first comment! >_<"

Thanks for dropping by, Daniel! :)
