Malacca Trip - Chicken Rice Balls

Last weekend, Hunny and I took the advantage of the long weekend holiday due to Divali to go to Malacca. We stayed at a hotel called Seri Costa Hotel near Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan, Malacca Megamall. Sorry no pictures!

We were there to chill out and enjoy the food but the traffic congestion was horrendus! Hunny's car overheated a few times because it was so sunshiny and hot there while being caught in the traffic congestion. Later, he found out that it was due to no water in his engine.

I wanted to eat the mille crepe from Nadeje, orh jien and chicken rice balls whilst in Malacca.

We had chicken rice balls at the Formosa Chicken Rice branch (near Renaissance) and Hoe Kee (in Jonker Street). What is chicken rice balls? It is simply chicken (roast or steamed) served with rice cooked in chicken stock and other ingredients (to make it fragrant and tasty) and then shaped into mini balls (ping pong sized in some places to golf ball size at other places).

We had this set at the Formosa Chicken Rice Ball shop. It was not good. The riceballs and the chicken weren't fresh. We had a side order of Chicken Feet Thai Salad but the taste wasn't as refreshing as we wanted it to be as it was too sour.

The saving grace to this meal was the roast pork. The skin was still crisp and the meat were an even distribution of fats and flesh.

Here is what we had at Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Ball shop in Jonker Street. Everything was nice except for the steam chicken as it was overcooked and the chicken lost its slipperly smooth flesh taste.

This was the queue at 11am...but the boss is very efficient in seating customers.

Next up is Mille Crepes!!!!
