Mellben Signature, Tanjong Pagar Plaza

I haven't eaten at Mellben for years. This particular outfit (#01-105, 7 Tanjong Pagar Plaza, tel : +65 6220 5512) was largely cze char though many people still come for their crabs. It's what they've always been known for. But there were no crabs in this dinner. 

There was sweet and sour pork with longan on ice though. Kinda similar to that one from Social Place. The cuts of pork here weren't as fatty. The ice kept the fried pork from getting soggy. Not bad.

Stir fried French beans with dried shrimps had a nice texture and was deliciously savoury. Bits of  thinly sliced chilli padi gave spikes of mild heat.

Their seafood fried rice needed salt. Or fish sauce. I don't think these guys are known for their fried rice.

Liked their home made fried bean curd with chicken floss. This had quite a bit of textures going on from the mushrooms, broccoli, bean curd and chicken floss. Not to mention it was both sweet and salty.

We had prawns in creamy butter sauce. Prawns were not bad. That creamy sweet sauce scented with curry leaves and some heat was addictively delicious.

That's the salted egg pork ribs. Meat was pretty tender. I think these ribs might have been boiled before they were deep fried and then stir fried with the sweet and salty salted egg sauce.
