Get to know Mellben Seafood from a local people, he told us that you just need to told taxi driver Ang Mo Kio famous seafood restaurant and they will sure bring you to this restaurant. That is so true that straight away taxi driver drive us to this restaurant which located at Ang Mo Kio housing area and it was so crowded, we queue for more than 1 hour but we know that it sure worth the wait since so many people willing to wait for it.
The restaurant is pretty big with lot of crab shell hanging on the wall, with that I believe their crab must be very famous.
Singapore crab known to be super big in size and I just love their crab so much, normally their crab is from Sri Lanka and one crab can easily hit 1kg so you should expected to pay for quite high price, for Malaysian like myself I feel it pretty expensive due to currency rate but if you earn Singapore dollar I believe it is extremely cheap then.
Four Crab $135 cooking in two different method, Singapore signature Chilli Crab and Mellben Seafood Signature Crab BeeHun
Chilli Crab, creamy chili gravy with egg cook with the super big crab. Crab is very fresh and the meat is very firm while the sauce taste sweet and very mild spiciness, it just so delicious.
Crab claw is even bigger than a spoon.
Man Tou $2 is the best companion for Chilli Crab, dipping in the Chilli Crab gravy is so tasty.
Crab BeeHun, bee hun fully absorbed the crab essence while the crab firm and sweet meat is so awesome. Too bad that the portion is way too big or I should say we ordered too much, we only manage to finish a small portion of the bee hun, what a waste.
XO Sauce Scallop $20, dry shredded scallop with XO sauce cook with fresh scallop, fresh scallop is big in size and very fresh, it gave a springy texture and natural sweetness.
Garlic Chili Pork Ribs $15, pork ribs is so succulent and flavorful.
Thai Style Deep Fried Fish $36, deep fried “shun hock” fish cook with Thai sauce and garnish with onion, well presented dish and it is so crunchy, the sweet and sour sauce is so delicious.
Pepper Prawn $20, black pepper cook with onion and big fresh prawn.
Braised Sea Cucumber $20, my friend from India never eat sea cucumber before hence he insist want to try, since sea cucumber is my favorite as well hence I fully support him. Sea Cucumber braised together with roasted pork and various vegetable, sea cucumber is so soft and absorbing the delicious gravy.
Mellben Seafood located at Ang Mo Kio, one of the must try seafood restaurant in Singapore and you must have patience for your turn as it always crowded.
By the way, let me share with you that we only 3 persons to finish up above foods, are we crazy? Yes we are! And that meal cost us $273 (around RM700), YES! Even though it is expensive but well worth the value.
