The kids were excited! We were going as a family on our 1st road trip to Malacca.
We were all packed into our little Toyota Wish and were ready for the drive up to Malaysia. Setting off at about 11am, and we reach Malacca at 130pm.
Upon reaching Malacca, we were very hungry, and the kids were excited about trying out the Chicken Rice Balls that are served in Malacca.
Rice in Singapore and in most parts of Asia is just served in a bowl practically.
However, Malacca is filled with shops that serve Chicken Rice Balls, instead of the normal manner. You can see the difference in the rice served by checking out my earlier post on a recommended chicken rice stall in Singapore.
The thing that I like about this restaurant is that it is air-conditioned and behind the Hotel Renaissance Melaka (This was a hotel that I stayed in previously). This made it easy for me to find my way there.
We ordered roasted chicken and steamed chicken, just to see which was better.
However, we were disappointed with the chicken, as it was rather “boney” and “dry”.
The rice balls were a hit with Nathan, as he has been a bit fussy with his food lately. He had only been eating fish balls at meal time…and therefore when he saw the rice balls, he instantly took a liking for them.
Daddy’s thoughts about the food?
Malacca seems to be filled with these chicken rice stalls at the moment, and the original hawker who sells the rice balls, still sells them in a dingy little coffee shop near Jonker Street.
However, Chicken Rice Balls are a must-try when you go to Malacca. It’s just like when you go to New York, U have got to go up the Empire State building, regardless of what u hear about it!
