Melaka Chicken Rice Ball

After 4 years, at last I set my foot on Melaka again. I always wanted to eat Melaka chicken rice ball. It seems only Melaka chicken rice vendor have the time to roll the rice into balls. Other place than Melaka, you can't find that kind of rice balls.


Melaka is a touristic town. Do you see me queuing up for it? The length of this Q is nothing comparing to other stall. We were so hungry, so we just settle for the first Q we saw.

Tips for traveling: Only eat at stalls packed with locals. If you see it is packed with foreigners, start doubting the taste of the food.


We ordered 3 set of set A.
Fried egg with tofu
This dish is very interesting and looks nice too. It is fried egg with tofu at the base. Deep fried and it is bad for the throat.


The steamed chicken is smooth and tender, with fat bean sprout. I enjoy the bean sprout because it does not have the bad smell.


Here is the main point of this meal. Chicken Rice Ball. Hmnnnn. They tasted like sticky rice. Rice sticks to each other to form a ball. Can't really eat this kind of rice ball too much. It cause stomach to bloat.


The most interesting about this stall is that seems like every kids that just finish their meal here.... walking out... making chicken sound!! Cock coc cockoo!

Nice pictures there! I love chicken rice balls. Not easy to roll them as you've got to roll them while they are hot!

Thank, Merryn. I used to love it too, but can't eat it too much and fed up of it very fast. No wonder not many people want to roll it.
