Putien, named after a coastal city in Fujian Province, China, is a popular restaurant chain specializing primarily in Fujian Cuisine with a dab of Singaporean fusion cuisine included. It first opened in Singapore and quickly gained a large following, garnering accolades and awards along the way, including the coveted one-Michelin Star recognition. Putien now operates in seven markets in Southeast Asia and China, including 8 outlets in Hong Kong alone.

The restaurant is promoting “first harvested seaweed” dishes and we were highly impressed with the many ways seaweed can be incorporated into yummy dishes. What stood out for us is that almost all the dishes are unique, not easily found elsewhere.

Our selections included Seaweed and Minishrimp dressed with Sauce ($52), Crispy Deepfried Seaweed ($48), Braised Pig Intestine ($79), Stirred-Fried Yam ($89), “100 second” Stewed yellow Croaker ($69/pax), Stewed Pork Trotter with Seaweed ($98), Seaweed Omelette ($68), Putien Lor Mee ($82), Claypot Rice with Seaweed ($78), Deepfried Seaweed with Oyster ($78), and for desert, Deep-Fried Durian Puree ($42/pax).

The food is uniformly excellent and better yet, Putien has managed to keep the prices of its dishes very reasonably- no wonder the outlet we went to in Causeway Bay was packed.

For tasty, unique authentic dishes at great prices, Putien meets the standard and more- we highly recommend it- book early!
