PUTIEN - Michelin One-Star Restaurant Opens at Gurney Paragon Mall Penang

PUTIEN has recently opened its first northern region outlet at Gurney Paragon Mall, Penang.  PUTIEN started out as a humble coffee shop in Singapore back in the year 2000. Since then, PUTIEN has grown into an international brand with 50 branches in Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Taiwan, Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

While in Malaysia, PUTIEN has been pleasing the palates of many at 1 Utama, Sunway Pyramid, ss15 Courtyard Subang, The Garden Mall, Sunway Velocity and now at it's 6th outlet at Gurney Paragon Mall. 

PUTIEN has bagged numerous awards and the latest, One-Michelin Starred Restaurant in the Michelin guide Singapore 2016 & 2017. 

The story of Putien started with Mr. Fong Chi Chung, who missed the food from his hometown, Putian. A beautiful coastal suburb of Fujian, China and hoped to share the authentic Putian cuisine with the world.  The name Putian may be new to many, but the place is known for its many wonderful agricultural produce and seafood such as abalone, seaweed, PUTIEN clams as well as handcrafted products such as Yan Pi (Fujian-style wonton wrapper made of pork meat paste pounded by hand for 3 hours) and bee hoon made from hand-milled flour and sundried to ensure fine and silky noodles that is not brittle. 

Dining in PUTIEN is definitely cozy. The ambiance it offers makes dining such pleasurable. With a feast of delicious cuisine offered, it does wonders on the palate.

It is the PUTIEN's philosophy to skillfully bring out the original taste of each ingredient, hence its tag line Fresh Ingredients, Original Taste.
