It is a very very long wait at Melben for our food. We had to queue for around 1 hour before we are finally seated and then wait another 20minutes before our food is finally served. That said, the staff will some around and ask you for your order when you are queuing, so our ordered are placed quite early in the queue. Of the 5 dishes that we ordered, my favourites are the Yam Ring and Salted Egg Crab.
The yam ring, although is quite commonly found in other places, I found that the yam ring here is really good. The yam is very very smooth to the taste as it is very well blended and mashed. The exterior of the yam ring is crisp and the batter is not greasy so there is no oily aftertaste. The yam is also well flavoured and the ingredients in the yam ring are also ample. There is a mix of bell peppers, prawns and more. The only slight thing to improve on is the cashew nuts as it is not crisp.
The salted egg crab is also very yummy. The balance of saltiness and sweet is just right and it is creamy even. The crab meat is also firm and fresh and it has managed to absorb the salted egg seasoning quite well too. However, the long wait is quite off-putting so it will make me think twice about coming.
