Mellben Seafood, Singapore…butter crab is mouth-watering, finger-licking, must-check-out immediately GOOD!

Everyone in my family is a crab junkie and this is our all time favorite place to go for crabs.  The crabs here are big in size yet juicy, firm to the bite and succulent.

Their signature butter crabs is the recommended dishes that you have to try. If you have no clue what butter crabs are, picture this – whole Sri Lankan crustaceans deep fried with butter and more butter.  The butter taste was not overwhelming but it was sweet, thick, rich and creamy. In short: super nice!  It is best eaten with deep friend mini buns to soak up and savour the buttery sauce. The crab bee hoon (vermicelli)  is a white creamy soup-based dish but despite all the rave, it didn’t hit the spot for me.

Cospicuous long queue of hungry customers tend to formoutside it’s premises  during dinner time (as early as 6pm). Here’s the tip: avoid the waiting time by calling up to make a booking in advance. Alternatively I highly recommend going in early to avoid the crowd and really… the line outside is worth the hype and wait!

The butter crab here is mouth-watering, finger-licking, must-check-out-immediately GOOD! This is still the true truth and I still say it as it is…
