Food For Thought 173 – Putien (莆田) @ 1 Utama
Putien restaurant (莆田) serves Heng Hwa (or Xing Hua) cuisine, a regional
specialty that has its roots traced to Putian, a beautiful coastal town
located in the Fujian province of China. Still pretty new to Malaysia, Putien’s outlet in 1Utama opened its door on 5th January 2012. I took my family for dinner over the last weekend to celebrate my brother’s graduation. We were there at 7pm but waited half an hour for a table. The dinner crowd for a Saturday night was extremely packed. However, service was still okay as they have dedicated waiter to serve each different section. We ordered quite a fair bit of dishes as I wanted to let my family try some good food that they don’t usually get in Kuantan. Unfortunately some of the famous starters had sold out.
Still we enjoyed our dinner very much with all the dishes came out great. We loved the Fried Oyster Omelet for its crispness, the Salt & Pepper Pork Trotters for it’s crisp skin and fatty but not overly greasy flesh, the Stir Fried Chili Lala Clams for its fresh yet spicy taste, the Deep-Fried Boneless Mandarin Fish for its delicious sweet and sour sauce, the Fried Heng Hwa Mee Hoon for its extra fine noodles, the Putien Lor Mee for its pot full of pork belly, prawn & clams all braised in creamy pork broth.
Overall, great food, service can be further improved, good value for money, definitely worth visiting again.
