Mellben Seafood's first outlet in Ang Mo Kio has always been known to be very popular. They have been around for a long time, and I know of people who are willing to queue for hours for their food! However, there's one problem - they don't take in reservations during the weekends.

Well, here's good news to the Mellben fans! Mellben Signature is the other outlet that you can visit to avoid long queuing time for delectable dishes. Unlike the Mellben Seafood at Ang Mo Kio, Mellben Signature has decided to take in reservations! :D

Best thing is...... The Signature dishes we all love will be available at Mellben Signature as well!

Seafood Beancurd Broth with Real Crab Meat
Price: Small ($10), Medium ($20)

For starters, this seafood beancurd broth is a mix of crab meat, fish maw and tofu. The ingredients complimented each other well, which explained why it was so yummy. It was what I loved in broths - not very watery, yet not very gooey.

Crispy Beancurd
Price: Small ($8), Medium ($10)

This dish is crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. It has very little oil even though it's deep fried. Despite the simple ingredients, it was full of flavour! Dip it in the sauce you love and it'll be even better!

XO Sauce Asparagus with Scallops
Price: Small ($20), Medium ($30)

You know something's fresh when you taste it, and this was no exception. The XO sauce was not too strong and the asparagus was crunchy. Scallop was very 'Q' and bouncy too!

Salted Egg with Pork Ribs
Price: Small ($15), Medium ($20)

I am a sucker for anything with salted egg! This has got to be one of my favourite dishes ever! Did I also mention how much I love pork? The combination of both is like a match made in heaven. Every bite brought me closer to paradise, hahaha! :P

Even though I found it slightly greasy, it wasn't the nauseating kind. The meat was well cooked, the presence of the salted egg enhanced the taste. Some people might find it a tad salty for them though. I wish I could finish the entire thing. I am sold!

Dragon Fruit Fried Fish
Price: Dependent on size

Truth to be told, I don't usually eat fish... But the meat on this is tender that kept me going back for another bite! There was a good blend of sweetness from the fruits, saltiness from the fish, sourness and spiciness from the sauce.

Mushrom and “Bai Bai” Vegetables
Price: Small ($15), Medium ($20)

Yes, that fried brown thing is mushroom! It didn't taste like it though, I initially thought that it was beancurd skin. The vegetables were fresh and crunchy. This dish was the "forgettable" one though.

Salad Prawns
Price: Small ($35), Medium ($45)

When I first saw this dish, I was like: "Woah!"

Look at that decoration! You can see the hardwork and effort put in it. I am a sucker for prawns as well, so I loved this! The size of the prawns were generous, I loved how juiciliously fresh it was. Topped with the salad sauce, perfecto!

Chilli Crabs
Price: Market Rate

When in Singapore, one MUST have chilli crab. It is the national dish. Normally one won't go wrong when they order it, same goes for this dish! This is one of Mellben's signatures. The spiciness wasn't overwhelming, the meat was many many. Also, fried buns are a must to enhance the flavour!

Butter Crabs
Price: Market Rate

For those who can't take spicy food, this is the alternative for you.

The buttery texture made the crab more prone to slipping through the fingers. Not a fan of butter (fattening), but I found myself licking the buttery sauce off the crab. I'm sure many do that too, don't judge me!

Claypot Bee Hoon
Price: Market Rate

I am drooling as I type this. Another must order dish! The soup was wonderful, I had slurp a few more bowls of it.

Yam Paste
Price: Small ($18), Medium ($36)

What a better way to end the meal! The orh nee dessert is easy to do with simple ingredients, but to be able to let it taste delicious is another level by itself. Served warm, the thick texture and unmistakable aroma made me tell myself: "I will be back again for more."
