Mellben Seafood at Ang Mo Kio
Filed in best chilli crab | July 02, 2018
Mellben Seafood has made its way from a humble stall along Alexandra Road to a largely well-known seafood place with three outlets in Singapore. Its menu features a wide selection of crab dishes such as chilli crab, black pepper crab, claypot crab vermicelli soup, butter crab, salted egg yolk crab and shimmering sand crab.
- Delicious chilli crab: Chilli crab at Mellben is one of the best in our Lion city. You can always get very big crabs in thick, spicy and slightly sweet chilli sauce. Just request for a less spicy plate if you cannot bear high level of spiciness.
- Best place to have claypot crab bee hoon: Claypot crab bee hoon (also known as claypot crab vermicelli soup) is basically a noodles soup dish, highlighted by milky broth, which is rich with the aroma and sweetness from crabs. For many locals, Mellben is the best place to enjoy claypot crab bee hoon - a crab dish that may be new to your culinary dictionary but can make you melt from the first spoon of soup.
- Outstanding butter crab: Close your eyes and imagine a big crab coated with thick, buttery, sweet and slightly spicy sauce. The combination of seafood and butter may not be something out of your world, but Mellben’s recipe is really out of this world. It is a dish to die for.
