Ku Loong Kee chicken rice.

Ku Loong Kee chicken rice - best in melaka

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)!

    Sorry to burst your bubble but the shop has changed owner due to the past owner racking up debts from loan sharks.

    Now the food is sub-par and isnt as good as before.

      That sort of thing happens. Most hawkers has a weakness fr the bottle or the cards.
      MY friend already told me ” Cannot replicate it exactly. And worse of all, they slammed the chicken (as in smashed it flat) before chopping it into pieces. So it’s no longer the original Loong Kee version. No longer value for $$”

      Another one: “Last time price for half chicken is 12.50 right? Now it’s 17 ringgit for half. The chili sauce used to be very kao but the new one is watery. Chicken size shrunk. New name is Lou Foo Kee.”
