The rice ball is just good. Located in the Jonker street. Personally I will prefer foods on the street but I really want to try this place so yeah...

Unique, old and has a various delicious food with not too expensive price. Just try the fish ball menu, but reconsider the rice ball. :)

We made the big mistake of coming here to try the chicken rice balls. They were terrible and had no taste and were awfully dry. After coming here, you can understand why people were queuing at the other two more reputable chicken rice ball restaurants on the same street (I learned about these too late), and this one wasn't full. Even the other food we ordered was substandard, and the only decent thing was the coconut!

I always eat here as it is always the least crowded chicken rice ball restaurant (I don't love food so much that I have to queue up for hours for it). The chicken is just like the ones that you can find at just any chicken rice stalls (maybe it's just pricier here?). One thing I do notice though is that the rice balls are not getting any more affordable somehow they get smaller and smaller at each visit. hmmm... I guess rice is getting more expensive each year?

Not worth your time and money. Chicken rice balls lacked flavour and were tiny. Steamed chicken lacked flavour and texture was tough. Not even cheap.

Only tried this because Hoe Kee was closed. Never again.
