Melaka, a state rich in history and culture, is sure to have an abundance of different food items to try out. Whether its Nyonya food, Portuguese fusion food, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. One of the food items that’s unique to Melaka (and often synonymous with the state) is chicken rice balls. This dish is very much similar to the plate of chicken rice you’re likely to get in any Chinese restaurant in the country. The difference is in the name of course, the rice is drizzled in some soy sauce and formed into balls, which gives a new textural dimension to the local Chinese classic. One of the noteworthy stalls that prepares this unique dish is Restoran Nasi Ayam Heng Chicken Rice Balls, who specialise in this dish and have done so for many years.
At Restoran Nasi Ayam Heng Chicken Rice Balls, every diner is given the same set pretty much. The set consists of 4 items, namely the aforementioned rice balls, the obligatory plate of chicken, a plate of cabbage, and black bean soup. The sets can be changed slightly depending on the amount, and the number of people dining. The black bean soup is certainly a welcome change to the chicken and vegetable broth commonly served at most places that sell chicken rice. For other options, customers can also enjoy a portion of claypot fish curry to go along with their meal.
In short, if you’re looking for a place to enjoy some chicken rice balls, Restoran Nasi Ayam Heng Chicken Rice Balls is a good place to start.
