Best crab bee hoon in Singapore

If you are a fan of all things crab, then you’ve got to try crab bee hoon at least once in your life. Served with either white vermicelli noodles (bee hoon) or Chinese vermicelli (dong fen), crab bee hoon is usually cooked in two styles: braised and soupy. Find out where you can get a taste of both with our list of the 10 best crab bee hoon spots in Singapore!

1. Crab at Bay

2. Long Ji Zi Char

Avid fans of crab bee hoon would be well-acquainted with Long Ji Zi Char. Their signature Crab Bee Hoon (seasonal price) is on the slightly wetter side with thick oyster sauce, and features strong and flavourful wok hei notes with a slightly peppery taste. The crabs themselves are said to be fresh, juicy, and reasonably meaty. They tend to be on the pricier side, however, so you’ll have to be prepared to pay a hefty price for this excellent dish.

Address: 253 Outram Road, Singapore 169049
Opening hours: Daily 5pm to 10:30pm
Tel: 9790 5682

3. Chicken Pie Kitchen & Don Signature Crab

Chicken Pie Kitchen & Don Signature Crab is, as the name suggests, home to superb pies and crab dishes, with their crab bee hoon being a clear standout. Their crab Beehoon Soup (from $38.80+) is served in a broth which has a splash of Shaoxing Chinese White Wine, dang gui, and an aromatic hint of ginger. This is topped off with some milk cabbage, yam, and evaporated milk to give it some creaminess. The combination of these ingredients results in a really sweet and tasty soup dish.

4. Kelly Jie

Formerly known as Melben Seafood (Toa Payoh), Kelly Jie Seafood rebranded and named themselves after one of their vivacious managers. The famous Claypot Crab Vermicelli Soup (seasonal price) is highly recommended, but be patient with the long wait which is at least 45 minutes. A whole crab is cooked in a milky broth, giving it a rich, umami flavour. It’s not too jelak, and almost feels like you can drink it all day long.

Address: 211 Toa Payoh Lorong 8, #01-11/15,  Singapore 310221
Opening hours: Daily 12pm to 2:30pm, 4:30pm to 10:30pm

5. De Golden Spoon Seafood

De Golden Spoon Seafood is well known for their Golden Spoon Bee Hoon Crab (seasonal price). The crab sits in a thick, umami-rich gravy, which is best appreciated when slurped up with the accompanying al dente noodles. The huge crab is packed with succulent and sweet-tasting meat, with hints of wok hei notes that elevate the robust sauce. The Salted Egg Crab (seasonal price) here also comes highly recommended.

Address: 62 Seng Poh Lane, #01-11, Singapore 160062

Some consider Sin Huat Eating House one of the best places to get crab bee hoon in the country. However, the exorbitant prices they charge and long waiting times have made them highly controversial—it wasn’t too long ago that a food blogger’s $1,127 meal here sparked discussion about the place online. Their Crab Bee Hoon (seasonal price), features a fresh-tasting crab that is packed with meat. Each strand of springy bee hoon is said to be soft and springy, and well-coated in the wok hei-filled gravy.

Address: 659-661 Lorong 35 Geylang, Singapore 389589
Opening hours: Daily 6:30pm to 1am
Tel: 6744 9755

Keng Eng Kee Seafood is a legendary zi char restaurant that has achieved significant recognition over the course of its 50-year history, with a Michelin Plate award and a recommendation from the late Anthony Bourdain.
