Kedai Kopi Chung Wah, Melaka…chicken ball rice are good, but not worth the hassle

Got to say, not so impressed.

Melaka is well-known for its chicken rice ball, which is actually chicken rice pressed into a ball (when it is hot, to ensure it sticks together). The compact and flavourful rice balls were of a slight grainy texture, moist and slightly sticky but yet soft enough to swallow effortlessly; so much so you can eat it on its own.

For all that the rice balls are worth, I don’t get it.

The whole queueing thing here has gotten ridiculous! As early as 9.30am, the queue to even get into the shop is immense (that’s the time the photo below was taken). Moreover, the chicken was chopped in a haphazard manner….and it actually tastes the way it looks…not good. It was a monumental let-down.

I’m not sure I would queue again for that long while hungry. Good rice balls are available in many places. The rice balls here are good but certainly not worth any kind of hassle or special effort. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
