I’ve been to Putien many times over the years here in Singapore. And I do follow Michelin stars and all that stuff pretty closely and I had forgotten how this branched out chain actually got a Michelin star for it’s original Kitchener branch.
The food is good, but I am not sure it’s what I think of as Michelin star. Either way, I went back and had a great meal!
Here is one of their signature dishes, the Lor Mee. Not what you think about when you think of Hawker Centre Lor Mee. This one is different. Great broth and flavor, it’s deep and rich.Their Fried Bee Hoon is not as nice though. A little dry for me. I have always loved their Lychee Sweet and Sour Pork. It never disappoints me. The chicken with garlic is also a winner.Steamed Soon Hock. Tender and just done nicely. It’s great food, no doubt about it. Michelin star? Perhaps.
