PUTIEN is back with new seasonal ingredient now till 31 October 2019. The one-Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant, famous with Fujian cuisine is having PUTIEN Eel Festival. They launched two eel dishes. Instead of the Japanese-style eel/unagi dishes, you can indulge in Chinese-style of cooking.
PUTIEN focuses on freshness of the produce and pure flavour and sweetness of the ingredients.
And we are lucky to witness how chef prepared one of the eel dish, Live Eel Cooked in Natural Spring Water S$29.90++
The fresh, plump and juicy eel is cooked with clear spring water, ginger, goji berries and seasalt. It is simple methods but yet tasty. It is cooked for 10 minutes before serving. The eel tasted succulent and springy and the broth tasted sweet and light. It is definitely a comforting soup to enjoy.
Pan-fried Live Eel S$26.90++ (S) | S$40.30++(M)
Next, we have the pan-fried eel with seasalt and oil and topped with ginger slices on hot plate. The meat tasted juicy and meaty with natural fat content.
Aside from the seasonal eel dishes, indulge in their signature dishes like Yellow Croaker, Stir-Fried Yam, Fried Heng Hwa Bee Hoon and many more. You can check out other dishes from my previous dining experience with PUTIEN here.
