Hainanese chicken rice is my go to breakfast in SE Asia. In Melaka they gave several places that do it slightly differently. Instead of the rice the chicken is accompanied by rice balls. I’ve not seen this elsewhere in Malaysia though I’m assuming they have it in Singapore.
Last tine in Melaka I had chicken rice ball at Chung Wah. It was closed thus time so I opted for Famosa Chicken Rice. It’ s a much slicker place than Chung Wah but lacks Chung Wahs scruffy charm. It’s also more expensive. The chicken here was much more moist than in Chung Wah. However the texture on the rice balls was very poor, far too mushy though the taste was pretty good. I also added a tea egg, of course I did.
The all important chilli and ginger in vinegar. Pretty good.
Their signature Famosa coffer was expensive at 8RM a cup but very rich and delicious.
