Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Ball,Melaka


Hainanese chicken rice has got to be a cuisine close to every Singaporean and Malaysian’s heart. If prepared properly, the chicken is very tender, with the flesh slightly translucent where it meets the bone and fully infused with a delicious flavour and fragrance. The rice is cooked with the chicken boiling stock, chicken fat, garlic, ginger and shallots. So you can imagine how yummy the rice will be...



What's the first thing you should do once you touch down at Melaka? Eat chicken rice balls, of course! Truthfully, chicken rice balls are just a novelty as you'll likely smash the rice ball and eat it like normal chicken rice..



A restaurant filled with lots of nostalgic feel like this is uniquely available in Melaka only.Within the restaurant is a spacious hall with more seats and an open roof.Anyway it was a battle between Hoe Kee and Chung Wah, two of the chicken rice ball powerhouse in Melaka. I decided to go with Hoe Kee as blog reviews revealed that they were very efficient with consistent quality whereas Chung Wah's service was a little slower, hence the never-ending long queue at its door.but i will visit Chung wah in my next trip to melaka .



The chicken rice balls were the size of a small orange and very compact. The rice had a lot more moisture compared to the usual plate of rice to ensure that the ball did not crumble .

Service was very fast, efficient and systematic and even when there was a queue, the line moved relatively quickly.


Hoe Kee Hainan Chicken Rice restaurant can be found at the start of Jonker Street (Jalan Hang Jebat), next to the new San Shu Gong shop which sells traditional biscuits, candies and stuff.
