Since we have been to Chong Wah so many times, decided to try this place, where the queues were just as long.
We ordered chicken and fish. The chicken was very nice and the fish a change from strick chicken menu. Interesting, was served by a young 10 year old - did fell a bit guilt as he carried 5 coconuts on one hand with a tray. Worth trying.
The building itself was nice and spacious and quite cool once we sat down.

One of the most popular food in Melaka is Chicken Rice Ball. It is a variation of Hainamese Chicken Rice, with the rice made like balls.

Along Jonker Street, there are several restaurants serving this food, and I recommend this restaurant to try. The queue is quite long during lunch time so maybe it's better to come here not during lunch hours.

They don't have many menus so basically you only order dishes for how many person, and whether you would like to order vegetables and drinks. The serving is quick and efficient with the lady in front taking your orders and directing you too your table.

Always go back for this. Fast service and the lady boss is loud but friendly. Their fried cabbage is delicious to eat with their tender chicken. Rice balls may run out fast but they do serve loose rice, which is equally yum.

1. long queue as expected
2.chicken meat- ok
3. rice---totally disappointed, coz people go there to eat the ball rice, and not the regular oily rice, however you cannot choose ball/regular. it is fixed. ball rice is so much nicer and aromatic. too bad they served lesser ball rice compared to regular rice. what for all the waiting, but less satisfied.
4. use "non-recycable" plates, bad for mother nature.

The standard of rice balls and chicken was pretty average but it was cheap. The portion of the meal was pretty large for its price. Good for those who just want to fill their belly.
