Daily: 16:30 - 23:30
Located at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3, Mellben Seafood specialises in crab dishes especially its Claypot Crab bee Hoon.
One of the best crabs that I've tried in a long time! Had to wait in the queue for about 45mins as the restaurant does not accept reservations, only does walk-ins. But was worth the wait when the food came.
typical waiting time during dinner is around 2 hours. after you are seated, food is typically served an hour later. I do not take spicy food and hence, i super enjoy their creamy butter as well as tomatoe sauce based crab. every since i was introduced to large sized crabs ( about 1.8 - 2kg) , i will only eat larged size crabs. unless i have super craving for crabs but they do not have larged sized ones, then the smallest one i will eat is medium sized ones . appox 1.2kg. if you are like me where you inly eat the gong, then you should go for the male crabs. if you eat the creamy butter or tomatoe based crabs, you must order the fried buns . try and fall i love
The place was not as crowded as my last visit, but still almost full on a weekday night. We ordered three crab dishes, crab bee hoon, butter crab and chili crab, plus salt and pepper prawns and a vegetable dish.
Everything came out to be very good. The crabs were very fresh, with firm and tender meat. The taste was good too. The salt and pepper prawns were also very nice.
Definitely will go back again.
