中華餐室海南雞飯 Chop Chung Wah Hainanese Chicken Rice ........ Melaka - Malaysia

The first stop of our Melaka trip was a visit to 中華餐室海南雞飯 Chop Chung Wah Hainanese Chicken Rice. This Hainanese chicken rice shop is very popular. There is always going to be a queue no matter rain or shine. It was one of the must-try food places in Melaka. Do prepare to wait 30~60mins to get a table.

The chicken rice was rolled into bite size balls, the size of golf balls. Though fragrant, I thought it was a bit too sticky.

Chop Chung Wah's chicken was tasty from the sauce that was drizzled over it. The chicken was tender but not the most tender of Hainanese chicken that I've eaten. The savory sauce was the highlight for their chicken. It was good enough that 8 of us polished off 2 chickens.

Chop Chung Wah's chicken rice is located at the start of Jonker street, beside the river. As we walk into Jonker street, there were so many chicken rice shops, unlike Chop Chung Wah, they were all too commercialised by one look of their shop fronts. All of them definitely didn't have Chop Chung Wah's queue that was consistent no matter rain or shine.

Melaka, Malaysia

No Jess. Saw the most persistent queue wit Chop Chung Wah so we joined the queue. I'll try 和记 when I drive up to Melaka the next time. Thanks for the recommendation. Cheers!
