Mellben Seafood @ Toa Payoh

The baking workshop ended at 530pm. My colleagues and I were very tired and hungrysmileys so we proceed to have an early dinner at Mellben Seafood. It was located at 211 Toa Payoh Lorong 8. I was told that they have another branch at 232 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. Mellben Seafood is well known for their crab dishes and you've got to try them ~ the crabs are fresh and tasty! We didn't make any reservation and were lucky to get seats. By the time at 6pm, it was long queue so be there early or else you'll be in the long queue. Anyway, good food worth queuing up, right? smileys

Scallop Yam Ring smileys A bit disappointed with this dish as the yam is quite dry.

Thumbs-up for this signature crab dish. The crabs were fresh and meaty smileys
The soup was so tasty and went well with bee hoon which was not overly cookedsmileys

smileys Thumbs up again for this crab dishsmileys
Must order the man tou (fried buns) and dipped with the creamy gravy ~ drooling!

Overall, I would go for Mellben Seafood's signature crab dishes and definitely return to try their chilli and pepper crabs. I'm not sure if the crabs taste better at Ang Mo Kio branch. Perhaps you can share your review with me smileys
