Talk about crabs and one of the 1st few places that come to mind has got to be Mellben Seafood. Even on a random weekday evening, Mellben Seafood was packed to the brim.

Claypot Crab Beehoon

Claypot Crab Beehoon

Mellben Seafood’s signature Claypot Crab Beehoon was a soup based thick beehoon. The soup was rather creamy and milky. To top it off, it was very overwhelmingly rich in the taste of crab. You could literally just taste the sea in this soup. For those who can’t take the slightest fishy taste, this is definitely not the crab to go for. Noodles aside, the crab was fresh and succulent. In fact, the crab itself wasn’t even as fishy as the soup.

Salted Egg Yolk and Cheese Crab

The Salted Egg Yolk and Cheese Crab was more flavourful and savoury. There wasn’t much of a cheese flavour, more of the saltiness from the salted egg. We enjoyed licking the sauce off the crab pieces. On the down side, this version of crab meat was rather dry and not as juicy as the claypot crab.

Cereal Prawns

Cereal Prawns

The Cereal Prawns weren’t too impressive. They were rather bland and not fragrant enough. It seems like the prawns weren’t thoroughly and adequately fried and infused with the cereal bits. The prawns were huge, but the meat tended towards the drier and less succulent side.

Claypot Tofu

Claypot Tofu

Claypot Tofu has got to be one of the more popular dishes for patrons of tze char stalls. Mellben Seafood’s version was pretty decent, with a slight tinge of spiciness. In fact, the prawns in the Claypot Tofu seems crunchier and juicier than the Cereal Prawns.
