Wanted to try because Melaka is famous for its chicken rice ball but was rather disappointing. The riceball is small, dry n tasteless but the chicken made up for it. Nothing fantastic about the rice ball though

Rice is Made into balls and charged per piece. Order different roast meat and chicken meat. As there are chains of the same restaurant. There is no queue.
