Curry Mussels

$16.00 · 35 Reviews

Undoubtedly the most popular dish in Scaled by Ah Hua Kelong is the Curry Mussels w Mantou ($16) & I can see why. Juicy plump mussels with a fresh seafood flavour paired with the curry which was full of spices and had a nice kick to it. Mopped the entire bowl clean that we ordered additional serving of mantous (3 for $2) Just simple food but done right 👍

Dined at Scaled some time back and have not stopped raving about it since. The curry mussels pasta ($18) is a bold dish that is best shared - the bowl is packed with with mussels and spaghetti, then filled to the brim with an asam curry sauce. The flavour was extremely strong, tangy with a lasting spicy kick! Definitely one of Scaled’s well known and best loved :-)

Came back for the second time with more companions.

Ordered the chili crab risotto which was good and so soul comforting when it's still hot.But by the 3rd spoon or when it's cold,the taste get very very Jelat and you rather wish you be eating Quaker oats instead.

The grilled prawns were good as usual as well the Fried calamari!- they changed the batter so it's definitely better than my first visit.

Also ordered the XL clams and the Curry Mussels which taste very fresh and invigorating!

The smoked fish pate were a stand out!Slap the pate on the toasted sourdough supplied from Nearby Motherdough - your tongue will dance in Heaven! It taste so damn good!

The boss as usual is very very hospitable as well his staff's.All of them were so friendly.Its a great joy eating here really!

We had 500g cockles $18, la-la $14, curry mussels with mantou $16 + extra 3 mantou $2, smoked fish pate with sourdough $16, sea bass nori pasta $22, and canto garoupa $26. My second time back at Scaled (without burpple beyond) and I will still come back! My family really enjoyed the food (my Uncle practically drank all the curry), atmosphere and service. Really worth a visit but remember to make a reservation!


The crew recommended the curry mussels with deep fried buns but due to my starving stomach I decided to order the mussels with spaghetti instead🍝 Thankfully, this was still a foodkinggood dish in my own humble opinion. From the al-dente spaghetti to the robust and flavourful curry that coats each strand of pasta to finally the fresh and plump mussels of the sea 🌊, every element comes together to form an amazing concoction 💯

🤩 And of course the best part is that... I got to use @burpple beyond at this restaurant! 🤩 (UPDATE: IT IS NO LONGER ON BURPPLE BEYOND ☹️)

Must try is the Curry Mussels!
Ordered extra Mantou to soak up the delicious rich gravy that is a mix between Chinese and Indian curry style.

I believe them when they claim their seafood is freshly farmed from the kelong, because I taste the freshness and “natural-ness” of the seafood.

Even though it is no longer on Burpple Beyond, I will come back to Scaled!

My fav dish of the night (we ordered 5). I don’t eat mussels/oysters/basically any shell seafood😂 but I ordered this because of the reviews as I love fried mantou with gravy😜. I enjoyed the mussels (I’m surprised too! although my friend -another shell seafood hater- didn’t). They are fresh, big, plump and tasty.

9 juicy plump mussels in a assam Indian fusion kind of curry with 3 deep fried mantou. Extra mantous are available at 3 for $2 - we ordered them with no hesitation. Mantous are hot, crispy and super soft on the inside and soaks up the curry very well. Delicious.

Will definitely order this again the next time I’m back. With additional mantous, of course.

This was the nicest and the most underrated food in this restaurant.Thr meat was tender.The shio kombu was well executed.Add in a dash of lemon,and you will be in Prawn Heaven.Also ordered the Curry mussels,Seabass pasta,black grouper,fried calamari.All is well presented and nice.Except the calamari batter which is a tad too oily.

Staff were super super attentive and tool great care to explain each dish and how to eat it! Would definitely come again!

Stop by this romantic hole-in-the-wall along Haji Lane for a dose of quality seafood. Order their Grilled River Prawns ($16) for well-grilled and deliciously sweet prawns that are seasoned with nori cilantro butter and housemade shio kelp. Also try their Curry Mussels With Mantou (from $16) that feature fresh and juicy mussels accompanied by crisp golden-brown buns — heavenly when dipped into the creamy curry. To share, get the nicely Roasted Black Grouper ($28) that sees a perfect balance between the sweet cream sauce and the sourness from the side of pickled mushrooms.

Had the curry mussels pasta ($18), seabass pasta ($20) and roasted prawns ($16) but as the first two have been extensively reviewed, will share about the prawns. Deliciously sweet and tender flesh of the crustaceans complemented by a very yummy japanese-inspired nori cilantro butter and housemade shio kelp. The smokey bbq flavour added the perfect finish to these prawns. Was told by the server that the prawns we had were a bit smaller than usual but found them still fresh and oh so yummy. Only regret is that there weren't more of them.

Overall a great experience with fresh farm-to-table seafood, inventive yet local/ comfortable taste palate, and friendly service!
