On our visit to Malacca, our first stop was at Kedai Kopi Chung Wah, Jalan Hang Jebat. It serves chicken rice ball. This is the more recognized chicken rice ball shop despite some shops surrounding it does sell chicken rice ball. It is strategically located, and I bet one can’t miss it especially one is commuting with a car (since the road around there is mostly on a one way street). Customers actually have to queue out of the shop before proceeding to a seat (Well, not many people will know this procedure if they have not visited the shop). Once seated, they will come over to take orders. We went for 2 persons’ portion chicken breast meat. It was then served in 10 minutes. The waitress also brought the plates of rice balls. Each plate contains five rice balls. We only took one plate as we were going to try other food in that area.
After tasting the chicken and rice ball, I felt the chicken is really smooth. On the other hand, the rice balls is just average. I, personally, didn’t really like the texture of the rice after it is being rolled as a ball. The price of the lunch together with a glass of barley ice is RM10.60.
On service wise, I considered them average. At times, I find the man rude and did not really want to entertain us because we ordered a small portion.
The opening time of 7.30am to 3.00pm could be true, as this is one of the shops around the area that open in the early hours.
