Located on Toa Payoh Lorong 8 is one of the two branches Mellben Seafood has. They are well known for their crab dishes like the crab bee hoon. See what foodies like this place for

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.

I was lucky to visit with my friend at non-peak hour. A bit confused with how to order (first timer) and no direction how to do it. Although not much visitor, waiters were busy chatting. Finally ordered salted egg Crab and it was ok-ish. Not my fave, but I think other food must be tastes better.

Will visit again sometime when I visited the area.

Small Guinness Pork Ribs, 1 Salted Yolk Crab, Small Veg and Mushroom and a Medium Fried Rice. Total bill added up to approximately $150. I paid $87 for the crab. Last Saturday was my first visit to Mellben Seafood @Toa Payoh. The taste of the food was pretty good, but the crab meat was stuck to the shell, perhaps it was not very fresh. We sat upstairs which is air-conditioned and we need to pay 5% service charge for it. Felt that the crab was overpriced. Overall, the dining experience was quite pleasant.
