Crab Bee Hoon: Finding the best Crab Bee Hoon in Singapore at Mellben Signature

If locals think this is the best Crab Beehoon in Singapore, you will find us there! The place usually is buzzing and you usually might have to wait for 45 minutes, depending on the time you come. Since we visited in August 2020, the place wasn’t as full as usual.

We never have tried this dish until we were invited to come to eat here. We didn’t quite know how to navigate the menu, so we’ve let the pros do their job! Crab Behoon, Chinese Spinach with Three Eggs and Fried Chicken Wings were on the menu.

Mellben Signatures’ success is thanks to their commitment to selecting the best quality Sri Lankan Crabs. This ensures that only the biggest and freshest crabs end up in your Crab Beehoon, the must-try and reason to go at this restaurant! Mellben’s Chili Crab is also arguably one of the best in Singapore.

The Crab Beehoon, is known as Claypot Crab Vermicelli Soup (~S$90.00), serving just enough for 4, one bowl each (The normal portion of beehoon wouldn’t be enough for more than two people, so we topped up for extra beehoon ($4) and soup ($6), on top of the original S$80 pricetag). If that’s not enough, you might have to order two. One order of Crab Beehoon comes with one crab served with smooth thick glass noodles in a rich and aromatic milky broth. The crab was very fresh and sweet but I felt that there weren’t enough chunks of meat. The stock broth is very delicious and I could’ve gone for a second bowl refill.

The Three Eggs Chinese Spinach (S$15.80) is made of salted egg, century egg and chicken eggs combine together to make an aromatic gravy, perfect to ladle onto white rice, which we didn’t have personally. I was surprisingly happy with the dish and scooped everything!

To complete our appetite, we had some Deep Fried Crispy Chicken (S$15.80) is delicious and on the bigger side. A dish comes with 5 pieces.

The average cost per person is about S$50-60. Since price is based on the market price of the crab, they are not listed in the menu, so you may want to verify with the staff on the price before ordering and end up with a surprise!
