Malacca 2011 - Chicken Rice Balls

I’ve been to Malacca a few times before, but never had the chance to try the famous Chicken Rice Balls. This trip I told myself that no matter what I shouldn’t miss it.

Chicken Rice Ball is basically chicken rice that has been rolled into balls. I went to Formosa Chicken Rice Ball Restaurant in Jonker Walk - which is one of the most popular chicken rice ball restaurants in Malacca – highly recommended by many bloggers. It was around 7.00 p.m. but surprisingly the restaurant was a bit empty, and they were almost sold out of chicken. I made the order and the serving came in 2 minutes flat !

Now the verdict – the rice balls were a bit disappointing. Being rolled into balls, the rice has lost its fluffiness and instead was a bit gooey. Normal chicken rice is much better in my opinion. Good thing was the chicken was quite good – tender and juicy. I also ordered some char siew, and they were delicious. In fact I would go back for this rather then the chicken rice.

The fishball soup.

Nice char siew.

chicken rice ball is famous in Malacca but not at Formosa Chicken Rice Ball Restaurant. Hence explained why it was empty. The famous one is at Jonker street a red shop which u can see ppl queeing up for it.
