Melben Seafood @ Toa Payoh Lor 8

Treated my mom to a nice seafood dinner to celebrate her birthday as well as mother’s day. Went to Melben Seafood Restaurant @ Toa Payoh Lor 8 for the dinner. They have other branches but we chose the one at Toa Payoh since my mom wanna shop around Toa Payoh after the meal

Ordered their famous Crab Bee Hoon. The soup was very tasty. Cost of the crabs are charged by weight. We ordered 2 crabs and total cost is $83.

If you want more soup or bee hoon for your dish, you have to pay for the extras.


This is the other crab dish we ordered. It’s called Creamy Butter Crabs. I love to dipped the fried mantou into the buttery creamy sauce and eat it. Tasted heavenly


 Looks how meaty the crab’s claws are.


We also ordered a plate of longevity noodles since it’s mommy’s birthday. My dad said it’s very very delicious. And he polished off most of the noodles haha
the prawns are huge and crunchy. I did not ate them but my bro did.

Guinness Stout Pork Ribs. The meat was very very tender and it absorbed the taste of the sauces very well. But i can’t really taste the Guinness Stout.


Ah this is my dad’s fav. Brocolli with Sea Cucumber and Braised Mushrooms. Cost about $15.

Lastly we ordered a Steamed Fish done in Teochew style. Fish was very big and meat was very tender. But we found it a bit too salty as the chef uses too much salted veg. But overall this dish is good.


Total cost for all the above dishes ordered is $200. The lady rounded down the bill to $200 and do away with all the cents.
I find it a bit pricey but the food is good. The shop is opp a hawker centre and there were many stalls selling durians there. If you wish to have your dinner there, please make reservations in advance. Else you have to queue for a long time for a table.
I saw many people drinking red wine. Not sure if the shop sells wine to go with the food or they brought their own wine from home.
