Feast of Crabs

Posted on Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Mm mm. You know how whenever you get the chance to eat crab that every single sliver of meat you dig out is so precious because you only get so much of it? Well, we decided that after graduating, WE DECIDED THAT WE GETS OUR OWN CRAB EACH!!! (Excuse the fuzzy iphone photos)

8 crabs for 8 people = 1 crab each! And the fun part was we got to P&C 4 flavours to get a little taste of everything! Personal favourite flavours were the Salted Egg Crab and the Butter Crab although one of the best dishes that Mellben is known for is the Crab Beehoon as seen below:

It's what the name says it is, crab and beehoon in a thick broth full of rich crab essence and goodness. Ok i'll put this as my third favourite, and pretty value for money since you get your carbs included in the price as well.

I'm not a big fan of their Chilli Crab for some reason. The chilli is more of the sour kind and I personally prefer the one that we normally eat at Ban Leong. Don't hate!

The real prize winners to me are these two of course - the Salted Egg Crab and Butter Crab. The zhap (sauce) in the butter crab is heavenly to dip your mantous into (of which we had 50 of them to play with), and i practically felt like eating the shell of the Salted Egg Crab because it was deep fried in the goodness. Just settled myself with nibbling the parts of instead.

Check out everyone's greedy faces!!! Eating crabs is really unglam but i kind of revel in the whole smashing, digging, sweat & glory chaos that it is.

We spent exactly $50.00 each on the dinner for about medium to biggish size crabs. Right on budget! Nubbad.
