Crab Bee Hoon

33 Reviews

Actually, the signature dish of this restaurant is Crab Vermicelli but we decided to try Creamy Butter Crab instead. The waitress asked which crab do we want, male or female. Since I love crab roe, I picked female one. Then she suggested this crab which is really good according to her so we trusted her.
When the dishes came, I tried the sauce first. Creamy butter sauce has a taste similar to Salted Egg sauce. Not quite like I imagined but it tasted okay. The crab itself was really tasty. Full of meat and roe as well. The only downside was I was not good in holding and opening the shells so my fingers gor hurt by the spike 😭
Truffle Pork Loin was great. It has a little hint of sourness from the lime. And, of course, the truffle tasted nice.
Chinese Cabbage was perfectly cooked. I like that it still has the crunchyness. Favorite!

This restaurant is formerly TPT Mellben seafood according to the sign. But it's been so long since I went to the original Melben that I can't remember if this is the same one or not πŸ˜… Anyway their food is really great, so for me doesn't matter what were they before πŸ˜‰ .

Formerly Mellben Seafood TPY, they have rebranded themselves in 2017 to be known as Kelly Jie Seafood. Among their renowned signature dishes, one of which is the β€œClaypot Crab Vermicelli Soup” - vermicelli served in a luscious, savoury thick milky broth with pure natural essence of crab.
Guess how heavy is the crab that was cooked in creamy butter?

Read so many great reviews from other Burpplers about this place that I had to try it out for myself when I'm in the area! & I was definitely not disappointed! 😍 Super super rich & flavorful broth that soaked into the beehoon. Crab was big, juicy, fresh & fat! The meat slipped right out the shell without much effort. Serves as a great comfort rainy day meal. ❀️ Space here is limited but crowd moves relatively fast. A good spot for a family meal that satisfies both the young & old.

Still haven't gotten over the tasty, creamy Crab Bee Hoon Soup ($60+) slurping up the thick bee hoon with bits of crab roe in the delicate, sweet crabby soup. Other dishes (the filo pastry prawn was lit) were really good too, but this has gotta be the mvp for that night. Extremely proud of this sg tzi char πŸ‘πŸ»

Excellent broth

Reached before their opening hours at 5pm. Queued for 30mins before sitting down. Then another 1 hour to go sitting at the tables. Long wait but worth for the tenderness of crab meat and flavourful broth with hint of butter and pepper.

Crab beehoon served in a claypot ($60): the soup was milky & tasty, infused with the sweetness from the crab meat. I like how unique this dish, great for sharing!

Haven't been here in a really long time and finally back for dinner cause a friend was craving for this soup! Crabs were plump and freshly sweet, swimming in a milky, buttery and umami soup. Once you start slurping the bee hoon soaked in this luscious concoction, it's hard to stop. You can top up $5 for more soup and $3 for more noodles which I highly recommend (if you're in a group of ~4 onwards) to avoid a war breaking out haha! Mellben serves crabs in a variety of other styles as well, such as Butter, Salted Egg, Claypot Curry, with Braised Bee Hoon and etc.
