Chung Wah Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball (Jonker Street, Melaka, Malaysia)
It was also during the road trip that the realised that that the Chicken Rice Ball in Singapore is bigger than the ones at Chung Wah. During the car journey we were so hungry as we skipped breakfast so that we were at the Woodlands Causeway by 5.30am. This is to think of the sacrifices we are willing to make for good Chicken Rice Ball.
We were there by 10am. The queue was not that long, approximately 5 groups of people ahead of us. Took us around 30 minutes to reach our turn to savour the Hainanese Chicken Rice.
At first bite on the chicken rice, both Silver Chef and Bowling Ball like the taste. For me, it was a nostalgic moment since a long time.
The chicken did not appeal to us that much. It disappointed me as I am sure it tasted much better last time. Undaunted, I decided to take-away half a chicken and 10 chicken rice ball back.
We then went on to explore other parts of Jonker Street, Jonker Walk and parts of Malacca (Melaka).
I have to report that the chicken rice balls did not make it to Singapore. As this was only a day trip, we finished the chicken rice balls on our drive back. I must say that the chicken rice ball exhibited more tangy citrus flavour of lime when served cold
