Crabs only!

Went to [email protected] Poayoh the first time round, and was so pleased with the crabs that I brought my family back the very next week. Over the 2 visits, I tried the sparkling crab beehoon (or something like that), salted egg crab, tomato sauce crab, butter crab.

The sparkling crab is their specialty, and it lives up to its title! Very unique combination of ingredients, not "just another crab bee hoon soup".

Salted egg crab is another of my favourite. Have tried very nice salted egg crab at Mister crab, and this is different. It's deep fried with salted egg, so it's dry (with no sauce). It's a little oily, but extremely tasty. The chili padis really spiced up the dish. We literally licked the plate clean!

Butter crabs were pretty average.. tomato sauce crab is very much like chili crab, but with no chili. Sauce was too starchy for liking.

Other dishes we ordered were not comparable to other zichar stalls. yam ring was too dry, vegetables/fried beancurd/fried beehoon were all not tasty. Pork ribs were quite tender and tasty, and ghor hiong was quite nice.

In other words, JUST ORDER CRABS!

Also, don't bother making reservations. I tried to reserve a table, and was told that it was confirmed. But if I arrive at 7pm (my reserved time) and the tables are full, i would still have to wait. So.. what's the point of reserving if you still have to queue!??!

I went there with my family members during dinner time and we queued for almost 50 mins to enter. We ordered crab bee hoon, cali crabs, some fried vegetables and etc. The crab meat is very chewy as the crab is really fresh! The bee hoon soup is very tasty also as it has rich milky taste. My family members love it really much! The sauce of the chili crab is really amazing and it goes well with the buns! I can c the egg inside the sauce which I think it enhanced the taste of the chili crab! However, the crab there was quite expensive which costed us about 300 plus for 5 ppl!

mellben seafood has always been a hang out for my husband and I since our dating days. their crabs never ever failed us and they always served the freshest crabs and seafood to us! myself and my husband especially loved their crab beehoon soup. their soup is boiled and cook to a certain way that it ia very flavourful and I can have 2 bowls to myself. in addition, the crab serving was never stingy. they have this vege tofu which is handmade, it smells very nice ans they are very soft. I love them!
