Pu Tien was only a minute’s walk, down the road from Parkroyal Hotel. Its glow stood out among the other less glamourous restaurants. The staff were quick too… upon showing a second’s worth of interest, we were taken to our table.
We ordered the $56 set menu for four people and added the deep-fried duck with yam dish, one of my favourites. However, when we saw that the inclusion of napkins, rice, tea, service and GST had boosted the bill up to $90, I was not happy.
Anyway, the food was good… so here it is –

Dinner at Pu Tien Restaurant: Bamboo herbal prawn, steamed seabass, sweet & sour pork with lychee, deep-fried duck with yam, stir-fried kailan with beancurd skin, fried noodles & white fungus with red dates dessert

Bamboo herbal prawn, steamed seabass, sweet & sour pork with lychee, deep-fried duck with yam, stir-fried kailan with beancurd skin, fried noodles & white fungus with red dates dessert.
The bamboo herbal prawn soup was fragrant, sweet and delicious. The deep-fried duck was yummy too, except it wasn’t served with the thick mushroom sauce I like. And the fried noodles were simple yet scrumptious. I loved the extra bits of seaweed.
