Mellben Seafood Pasir Ris

Have always wanted to try the famous Mellben Seafood in Toa Payoh but has never found the courage and time to brave the crowd. Fortunately, here in Pasir Ris, there is a branch of the famous seafood restaurant. And after moving here for over a year, finally found the time to go down and try the food.
We ordered Mom’s favourite, the cereal prawn.

Also, there house specialty, the tofu. It came with a nice thick sauce and plenty of chye poh. This was good.

And of course, what we came for. The crab. We had this curry black pepper crab which was super spicy. And the lady had asked whether we want normal spicy or extra spicy. Thank goodness, we went only for normal.

Everybody favourite – the crab noodle.

Personally, I didn’t think the food was great. Certainly the expectation was much higher considering its pedigree, but maybe because this was a “branch”, the standard is not the same and not as good. But price wise, for the 2 medium size crabs, the prawn, tofu and 1 vegetable, we paid just slightly over $120.00 which I think is pretty decent.
