putien restaurant, vivocity

indubitably one of my favorite restaurants in singapore.

my nomination of best dish definitely goes to the song shu yu, or filleted fish deep-fried and slathered with a not-gloppy tangy sauce, cucumber cubes, pine nuts and other bits of crunchy greens.

the complimentary (or is it not) fried seaweed and peanuts do great for starting the appetite – as do the slightly chilli-oiled jelly fish.

my recent discovery: a dish of chicken and chestnuts, which was very good, and especially so with rice. chestnuts are plenty awesome, both cooked and straight from the packet.

but it’s not just the food – the service is pretty good too, and food comes in decent time. AND I recently realised that if you celebrate birthdays here, they do that whole polaroid-and-card thing for you (and some outlets have a twisted bubble crown)! how awesome.

as rave a review as my normally-pessimistic nature allows.

    • I will suggest make a trip to the changi village market for some nasi lemak and hawker food or chomp chomp for more hawker food, but skip lau pa sat (unless you really want to see this national icon).

      restaurant-wise, I suggest going to jumbo at clarke quay or big eater seafood for some chilli crabs – and then thereafter explore singapore’s food scene! the imperial treasure and paradise group restaurants are very, very good for chinese food, and I like etna for some italian in chinatown. when will you be here?
