Ku Loong Kee chicken rice.
I bet not many of you have heard of it.
When one gets on the topic of the “best chicken rice in Melaka“, names such as Chung Wah Chicken Rice Ball, Hoe Kee, Huang Chang Chicken Rice, Heng Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball and Wilson are tossed about.
For the halal community, Ee Ji Ban Chicken Ball Rice comes to mind.
If you’re not a fan of these rice balls, you can opt for regular rice.
Being locals my friends approved of Huang Chang in Taman Melaka Baru and I personally found Huang Chang to be acceptable.
But if it is just plain good old chicken rice you’re after, then let me introduce you to this exceptional delicious chicken rice in Melaka, which to some of my friends (local Malaccans) crowned it as one of the best in town.
The chicken is amazingly succulent and soft with all of its natural juices intact.
The chilli sauce packs a punch; thick and pungent with garlic and ginger.
Look at the meat.
Not a breast meat lover? Well, you might be after sampling this one, for the breast meat has a nice, resilient chew to it while still retaining its juiciness.
In fact the chicken is so good that you could eat it on its own.
That’s not to say that the rice was subpar, for I can assure you that it is not. Aromatic and fluffy, you will be tempted to “kai fun” (add rice)!
The glistening yellow skin was slippery soft and easily chewable as well.
Last but not least, service is brisk and attentive and the prices are amazingly fair.
Here’s our bill:
Half a chicken: RM12.50
Taugeh : RM5.00
Rice : RM1.20/plate.
