The Mooncakes

The mooncakes were named in honour of PUTIEN's longest serving employee, Madam Leng Ah Eng (fondly known as Lian Jie 莲姐), who was also the creator of these delectable treats. They were originally made as a special treat for Madam Leng’s colleagues and regular patrons only. For the third year now, Madam Leng handmade mooncakes are back for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival. The mooncakes will be produced in limited quantities at all PUTIEN outlets from now until 15 September 2016.

It was a special Friday afternoon where all media gathered at PUTIEN and learn how to make yummy PUTIEN Madam Leng...

On this day the medias are lucky and get to try how to make a traditional mooncake with the guidance of Lian Jie. I even get a chance to video the whole process down for reference purpose.

This is a Teochew kind of mooncake, 2 type of flour is used here. Bring the mooncake to deep fry for 6 minutes after shaping and it is ready to be eaten.

Customers who wish to pre-order can contact their preferred PUTIEN outlets in Singapore to do so. All enquiries can be made over the phone to the outlets but orders will only be validated upon payment. 

These are the mooncake varieties available for purchase:

Yam: $48 (Box of 4)
Yam w/ Single Yolk: $13.50 (Per piece)

Yam w/ Single Yolk: $54 (Box of 4)

After having 16 years experience of making mooncake for friends and family I am glad that Lian Jie mooncake is widely available across PUTIEN outlets in Singapore now. She has not been doing mooncake for some time already, this is also her first time doing a demonstration to the public. I am really happy to find that there is someone in this era who willing to pass down their skills to the younger generation and also to see a company crediting their employee for their creation.

The Food

At PUTIEN's they serve natural, fresh and healthy food. Customers not only can get to enjoy their mooncake here, they can also have their lunch/dinner at the same time. So my friend was asking for suggestion on good mooncake in a restaurant but not too high-class, hence, I recommended him to go to PUTIEN's where they won multiple awards and serve healthy dishes at reasonable price.

Spinach with Salted Egg & Century Egg in Supreme Stock [$12.90(S), $18.90(M)
The soft and tender Chinese spinach are first stir-fried on high heat for flavor, then stewed in rich supreme-stock mix of century egg and salted egg to give it a burst of flavour.

PUTIEN Sweet & Sour Pork with Lychees [$12.90(S), $18.90(M)]
Deep fried to light golden brown, the meat is tender and moist on the inside. The lychee is a perfect complement with its added burst of sweetness to the sauce. Highly Recommended

Fried Heng Hwa Bee Hoon [$26.80(L), $17.80(M), $8.90(S)]
PUTIEN Heng Hwa Bee Hoon is the only sundried vermicelli milled by hand in Putian. Unlike machine dried bee hoon, drying manually under the sun at the crack of dawn ensures that the bee hoon is translucent, silky, fine, chewy but not brittle. Seaweed used are 1st grade and all are 15cm long. The rich, milky stock of pork bones and old hens cooked for hours and infused with 10 sumptuous ingredients add to the flavour of the bee hoon. Definitely, one of the crowd favourites. Contain more moisture and no MSG.

PUTIEN Style “Bian Rou” Soup with Vinegar [$19.90(M), $13.90 (S)]
‘Bian Rou (Wanton) Soup’ is a Fujianese specialty with more than 500 years of history. At PUTIEN, they spare no efforts in keeping this precious craft originated in Chinese imperial dynasty of Qin. The delicate Fujian-style wonton wrapper is made of pork meat. Each time, 3 hours of continuously pounding and rolling on the meat paste is required before it becomes as thin as paper, making the handcrafted wanton springy and palatable with every bite
