5 Must Eat Food in Melaka

1. Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Ball 和記雞粒飯

One of Melaka’s signature food is Chicken Rice Balls, the chicken rice is served as rice shaped into golf ball-sized ball rather than a bowl of rice.

Older chefs argue that the rice was originally shaped into balls because it needed to be kept warm from the time it was cooked (often earlier in the day) until mealtime. The rice balls, when stored in wooden containers, apparently stayed warm for a longer time.

  1. I am Malaccan , and i agree with this 5 must eat food in mk.
    ya, all this 5 is famous in mk.
    May i link this page to my blog to share with my friends?

    TQ ~

  2. 1, 3 & 4. Especially number 4, IT’S A MUST! I demand people to patronise Nadeje’s and don’t care how you gonna get there. It is a must. Do I sound serious enough? LOL.

  3. I have really learned newer and more effective things by your blog.
    One other thing I want to say is the fact newer computer system os’s often allow extra memory to
    get used, but they furthermore demand more memory space simply to perform.

    If people’s computer cannot handle more memory and also the newest software
    requires that memory increase, it could be the time to shop for a
    new Laptop or computer. Thanks http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/%2b/pandoracharmsjewelryshop.co.uk/en/SocialCare/Socialcarereform/Personalisation/index.htm,http://www.pandoraukstore.eu
