Crab Bee Hoon

$55.00 ยท 30 Reviews

Chilli crab is also one of their signature dishes here at Mellben.

Decided to get a 1.4 to 1.5kg female crab to be cooked: Chilli style.

Female crab: lots of egg, roe. (BUT)Small claw

This crab today is full of roe. Crab meat here is very consistently good, consistently fresh.

The chilli is a little spicy, but I really enjoyed it.

Chilli crab > crab soup


Mellben seafood has been opened for along time here at AMK. The store is the main branch.

The crab bee hoon soup is Highly recommended dish here at mellben.

Crab confirm is fresh here, meat is so tasty.

Decided to go with a 1.1kg male crab for this dish.

Male crab = large claw, no roe.

Claw was huge.

The broth was also so flavourful, really like it, until we both decided to pay $5 just to top up the soup. Simply shiok.

Good for casual feasts with the fam is this foolproof zi char spot in the North. The bang-for-your-buck Crab beehoon ($70/kg) features a big portions of crab and white bee hoon soaked in tasty, creamy broth. Another popular dish is their succulent Chilli Crab (from $68.90) bathed in a slighty eggy spicy sauce.

AMK outlet: @mellbensignature is a long-standing & well-known place for crabs without the fuss of a fancy restaurant setting. They were really killin' it years back, but now it just doesn't have that satisfactory value attached to it. Still good though!

Rating: 8/10

Will i return/recommend: Yes/Yes

Pros: Really tasty ๐Ÿ˜ Love the crab bee hoon soup! Crab meat is very sweet. Green dragon veg yummy but overpriced @ $15 ๐Ÿ˜’ Sambal lala sauce nice, not very spicy - but i think true sambal lovers will be disappointed.

Cons: MSG is too much. Long queues during dinner time (only AMK). Standard is dropping & inconsistent among diff outlets. Taste-wise, AMK is my fav. Cannot stand the majority of their staffs attitude. "Seafood" restaurant, but only left with lala & crabs for shelled seafood?! ๐Ÿ˜… Lala isn't fresh. I'm pretty certain crab weight is less than what they claim (my uncle used to sell crabs so quite familiar), but as usual, just have to suck it up if iโ€™m gonna dine there ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Price: S$138.03

Melben's crab bee hoon soup is really unbeatable. Super satisfying meal. The quality of the crabs here is really excellent. Come early to get seats - it was empty at 5.45 on a Friday night but filled up quickly (and the famous queue started forming...)


This is Mellben Seafood's signature Claypot Crab Bee Hoon Soup. It is so popular that additional soup and bee Hoon is limited to one portion per table. Please read my review at

Excellent soup broth with slippery thick beehoon. Do call up and check about the size of the crab. Only worth coming if crabs are at least 1kg each.
