Putien @ Serangoon NEX

This year we went to the new Putien outlet at Nex Shopping Mall to celebrate my dad's birthday cum a reunion dinner with my cousins. The front of the restaurant is catered for small group of diners while the back of the restaurant partially hidden by the partition is for larger group.

On each table was the Putien Chilli sauce which was freshly made without any preservatives. The chilli sauce was really nice and you can even buy it off the counter.

I ordered a total of eight dishes. The stir fried yam was a simple dish whereby the yams were cut into rectangular shape and stir fried with some sweet sauce. The yams were cooked to perfection neither too hard nor soft and giving it a bit of crispiness.

The sea cucumber was my mum's favourite. I noticed her helping herself to several servicings. Besides the sea cucumber, theree were broccoli, roast pork, mushroom and chestnut in the dish.

The sweet and sour pork was probably one of the best in town. Unfortunately I was late in snapping the picture and the lychees were gone.

The shrimp roll surprised everyone at the table. It was the largest shrimp roll we have ever seen. It was really good but the size of it did not encourage us to go for more pieces.

This is my first time ordering the deep fried chicken with garlic at Putien. It was also the dish I ate the most. The crispy golden skin was very yummy. Although it was deep fried, the meat was still moist and tender.

Unlike the commonly known Lor Mee which is starchy and dark in colour. Putien Lor Mee is white and soupy. It is one of their signature dishes and my favourite too.

The Spinach with three eggs is a dish which I usually order when I dine at a Chinese restaurant. Putien's Spinach with Salted Egg and Century Egg in Supreme Stock was the best I have eaten.

I ordered this dish because my younger sister wanted it. I only ordered 2 buns (the minimum order) since only she wanted it. The dish came with plastic gloves to stuff the shredded meat in between the bun. I took a bite of the shredded meat and it was so so only.
