Mellben Seafood @ Toa Payoh

Seafood in Singapore actually very popular among the people. But good seafood at a reasonable price, is really hard to come. In this review, i actually found a place that is quite reasonable and the seafood is very fresh. This place is well known for their crabs, you have people coming from different parts of Singapore just to eat their crabs. Their First branch was in Ang Mo Kio, then in Toa Payoh.

Happy birthday to Andy Fong and thanks for the dinner ( bit pai seh your birthday still, let you treat. Next outing on me!). We ordered longevity noodles which taste bit like lor mee, i did not really like this dish in terms of taste but it has significant of blessing.

When i was looking at the menu, i was quite amazed that there were close to 13 different ways that the crabs could be served. We ordered the pepper crab and the simmering crab as my girlfriend’s friend had craving. Pepper crab was quite normal, bit more to the spicy side, but still acceptable. The simmering crab was a mixture of butter , pepper and cereal and it was acutally quite a nice combination. The crabs are big in size yet juicy and tender. I prefer chilli crab and i heard that the store is famous for its crab bee hoon soup, i will go do a revisit soon. (Good excuse to go eat again maybe i go try the ang mo kio branch)

Next on the list was wasabi prawn, very nice fusion of chinese mix japanese. The sauce mixture was quite nice not too spicy just nice. The prawns are fresh and very crunchy , the meat when mixed with the wasabi mix, it really makes a heavenly pair. Lastly was the mongolian ribs, we just had guinness stout ribs sometime back hence a something different. The sauce was bit too spicy but the taste is quite nice. The ribs are tender yet juicy, overall not bad.

The bill came up to be around 150 for 5 person. It is a bit pricy but the quality of the food is not quite reasonable and we also order slight abit more. I will do a revisit soon to try other dishes, stay tune for more.
