We had dinner at Pu Tien in Marina Square on New Year’s Eve. We ordered the Family Set menu to avoid confusion.
My mum and my childhood friend’s mum are big fans of taro, so they loved the Stir Fried Yam (Taro) very much. The yam has caramelised crunchy exterior, which I think is Teochew style of making yam dish. This menu was not included in the set, it was additional order.
Fried Heng Hwa Bee Hoon. The bee hoon tasted very rich in flavour, although it looks plain white. It is cooked it in rich, milky stock of pork bones and old hens for hours. Moreover, the bee hoon is infused with 10 sumptuous ingredients. What made the bee hoon even more special is that Pu Tien uses homemade bee hoon, made from non-glutinous rice flour and dried under the sun for a long time, which results in more springy texture, unlike starchy store-bought bee hoon. The beehoon style is so similar to how my grandmother and my mum always make it, but the is that my mum uses shrimp, but Pu Tien uses clams.
