Best Chicken Rice in Melaka

Written by Updated ago

A local favourite, our rendition of the classic Hainanese chicken rice usually comes with either roasted or steamed chicken. Malacca specifically is a hotspot for anyone who would want to try Malaysia's take on this Hainanese dish. In this UNESCO Heritage site, the distinctive element of Malacca's chicken rice is in its rice or perhaps, in this case, rice balls. So look out for these restaurants with the best chicken rice!

    Old Town Chicken Rice BallNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    It is true that Melaka is filled with chicken rice balls. There's just so many that one might be confused at which is the best. Old Town Chicken Rice Balls on one hand, is probably one of the top few places to indulge yourself in some balls while on the other, still below the rank of other elites in Melaka. As expected, the chicken here is steamed quite beautifully - not too over nor under with just the right amount of chewiness. It is also really fresh, so tasting the essence of chicken will be lovely. On top of that, the rice balls are made quite smooth but powdery.

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Things to expect

    A casual dining place.

    If you're wondering where to get good chicken rice for you and your Muslim friends, head to Old Hainam. Insisting on no pork or lard in their dishes, they substitute it with chicken oil instead and has been pulling in customers without fail. Their meat is tender and the rice fluffy. The chilli sauce isn't that spicy, but its flavourful nonetheless.
