Famosa Chicken Rice Ball
Sample Malacca's famed chicken rice balls in this festively decorated restaurant. Occupying a century-old former goldsmith shop, it marks an upmarket evolution of the popular home grown speciality food. The golf ball sized sticky rice balls are cooked in butter and ginger, perfectly complementing a plate of succulent steamed chicken. Despite stiff competition from long-running veterans of the trade in the Jonker Street vicinity, this newcomer appears to be pulling in the crowd with its chic decor and comfortable setting. Soft drinks, fresh juices as well as hot and cold beverages are available.
The huge restaurant was empty which should have warned us, but we had read good reviews so persevered. We ordered roasted chicken with chicken rice balls and steamed chicken with chicken rice balls, and two lime juices. We live in Singapore and eat in hacker centres every day so we can see past the 'look' of a restaurant. However, our food arrived in about one minute, and was stone cold. The rice balls were just a starchy lump with no flavour and the chicken was nasty. We sent it back - we have never had Asian food so bad. The miserable hostess microwaved it, but the plate took most of the heat. The lime juice was thick and salty- DISGUSTING. So far in Asia, the cheapest food has been often been the best, this was a huge disappointment.
ANY PUBLIC HOLIDAY THIS RESTAURANT FULL WITH CUSTOMERS FROM OPEN UNTIL CLOSE, NO KIDDING, SHOULD AWARD THIS RESTAURANT WITH WORLD RECORD.
BESIDE CHICKEN RICE BALL, TRY THIER BROWN COLOUR "YAM BALL", IT TASTE GOOD AND THE BALL LOOK SO CUTE.
