Lots of Crabs

This is probably one of the most under-rated seafood restaurant in Singapore. Tuck away from central areas, this place has it's loyal followers. Always crowded during meal times, it offers a wide variety of seafood dishes, especially its crab dishes. It's chilli crab is OK but would recommend everyone to try their Bee Hoon Soup crab. Do also try their Guiness Ribs - excellent!

On 9 Dec 2014, I went to AMK branch for dinner. The staff manning the queue and order taking is terrible. As if that is not enough, after the order is settled and they handed over a rubber stamped white card with message to say "Not 100% guaranteed solid crab meat". Huh? Your specialty is crabs and you are telling us your crabs are not 100% solid meat. I have been to Mellen Seafood occasionally. Their service level are deteriorating over the days. To all the readers, please avoid Mellen Seafood if you can. The queue, service level, "not 100% solid meat" message and the price are definitely not worth the efforts. Put your hard earned money in somewhere else who are also selling good crab meats.

Review first appears here on CityNomads.com.... It is also in Singapore that some of the best food is found at inconspicuous/innocuous places, and Mellben Seafood is one of these. The gravy used in their version is a little spicier with sweet and sour tones, and their crabs are reliably meaty and fresh. Also worth a try are their Claypot Crab Bee Hoon Soup and Butter Crab – but be sure to arrive early (before 6pm) as they take no reservations, and the queue gets quite out of hand after 7pm.
