I've been going to Mellben Seafood rather regularly since the Toa Payoh outlet is just opposite Ching Chong Boy's place. And everytime I tweet or check in via Foursquare, I tend to evoke certain responses from my BFF Jace.
"Wah so shiok!" "Bo jio!" "I also want :("
Ching Chong Boy and I decided to "jio" Jace and Boss (that's what she calls her bf!) to Mellben Seafood one weekend. We did not make any reservations but we reached rather early at 6pm as from previous experiences, it tends to get rather crowded from 6.30pm onwards.
Dear Jace brought me to Nakhon Kitchen recently! I've heard so much about the place but have never been there! Turns out they opened a branch in Bedok North and that's pretty near to where both Jace and I stay. (hahaha not that near la, but it's a few stops away!)
We waited say 15mins to get a seat. It isn't an air-conditioned place so be prepared to sweat it out. Luckily we managed to get a seat outside and it was rather cooling that day.
Pictures of us before we stuff our face!
BFF and her iced tea!
Me! I tried braiding my fringe but failed. LOL. I loved this dress from TheBlogShop but an unfortunate incident happened earlier that day and the hem got badly torn. 🙁
We ordered the Thai Mango Salad (S$5), one of my personal favourites. I really like mango salads, love how they tantalise my tastebuds with the different sensations, sour, spicy and sweet!
We shared a portion of the Pineapple rice (S$6). Hmmm, I thought it was comparable to other pineapple rice sold elsewhere. i.e. didn't think it was that special.
The Tom Yum Soup (S$6) is delish. Too spicy for both Jace and I though but we were sipping away despite our tummies burning. I loved that it was full of ingredients, definitely value for money! Go for this! (But you may wanna ask them to tone it down for you :p)
I wanted to try the Kangkong (S$6) as I'm a huge Sambal Kangkong fan. It was a bit disappointing as I expected it to be spicier. Not too bad but I guessed my expectations were set too high.
We tried the Deep Fried Squid (S$10). Jace and I both felt that the squid wasn't crispy enough. Would have given it full marks if it was!
