Hainanese Chicken Rice is one of the most iconic street foods you’ll find in any big city of South East Asia.

In Malaysia, one of the areas with incredible and unique food is Melaka. While you’re there, check out one restaurant that’s always high on any list of local recommendations – the name is ‘Kedai Kopi Chung Wah.’

They make the most amazing rice balls, and when pairing a plate of these with the great local-style Hainanese chicken recipe – its food worth traveling for.

来自亚洲的人们,即使是欧洲的一路,都是从15世纪中叶开始访问Melaka的大量数字!

它独特的地理位置是在这里的第一(马六甲的直线)带来的东西,谢天谢地,当来自中国的海洋终于在这里制作时,他们是在对当地食物的影响方面带来最多的人。

And oh, what beautiful food it is.

**Hainanese chicken rice is not Peranakan* food, but it is something the Chinese have brought to South East Asia.

Note:* While chicken rice is from Hainan, Melaka (and Malaysia as a whole) is home to many other foods worth traveling for. Be sure to check out the uniquePeranakanNyonya文化和烹饪用品,您可以使用这些其他文章来了解他们的食物(点击上面的链接)。威廉希尔网站

显然,它非常平淡,看起来这不是人们所知吃米饭的常规方式。

Investigating a new food is one of life’s biggest treats, and for this reason alone I was so happy to visit Kedai Kopi Chung Wah.

然而,除此之外,所有人都被我们的食物联系在一起,我总是喜欢看到世界主食烹饪的方式 - 这米对我来说是一个新的。

不仅它坚定,而且它甚至能够握住球形,以便服务器可以将它们滚到一块板上。虽然这米是白色的,但实际上甚至白色的颜色也不同于我从家里知道的白米。

最后,谷物本身甚至很难挑选出来,如果我不太了解,我就会假设它用糯或糯米米制成。

如何订购

Walking into the restaurant, the ordering process is wonderfully simple.

Count how many people are in your party, and this determines the number of plates of rice balls.

Next, decide how many chickens you want, and whether you want half-chicken sizes, or whole (there are only these two choices).

您将在那些您可以找到一张桌子以及携带食物板的服务器的桌子,以及 - 如果您无法从门口讲述 - 这个地方非常受欢迎。这是一家游客参观的优秀餐厅,但它不是您可以坐几个小时的地方。

Behind the Scenes

虽然海南鸡肉米似乎是一个相当简单的饭菜,但这个终极和标志性的盘子都在整个东南亚都发现了一个严重的准备时间。

As those who love chicken rice have learned along the way, this is a perfect dish to prove the saying, ‘its the little things that count.’

Skipping steps here just won’t do, and this Melaka-born family of Chinese-Malay are working hard to continue their family traditions. They are making stellar plates of chicken rice and rice balls here, but let me take a few moments to give you some details, before we move to the food itself.

  1. Using a large frying pan to cook大蒜,厨师用只使用盐,通过干煎炸蒜味制成一层纯烟熏味。这也不是一个快速的过程。
  2. 这些浓郁的吸烟大蒜然后进入制作鸡汤,然后曾经用来制作米饭的米饭,并在餐馆打开门之前慢慢煮掉一些其他物品(几个小时)。
  3. 我会猜到这些厨师的精彩风味深处,这些厨师在这些过程的某些部分使用木炭 - 无论是烹饪米饭本身,还是提供煮沸的火,煮鸡(及其器官,以及血液,separately) – and finally only after these hours of prep time does the food you will order come up to the chopping block (where the customer can finally see this ‘simple food,’ food that takes so long to prepare).

The Chicken

回到食物。

厨师正在快速砍掉他们的鸡,足以搭配匆忙。当另一个朋友填写订单时,您可能希望有一位朋友找到表格。

当你坐下来,品尝鸡肉,而它仍然蒸熟。每件件的皮肤都是柔软的,它真的来自我之前提到的大蒜和烟雾过程中的大量味道。

酱汁

我不能说鸡是一个自己的“令人难以置信”的菜,但只要等到你品尝到它的酱汁。现在这是一种爆炸​​的味道。

Vinegar based, and heavy on the garlic side as well, I just love this slightly spicy, tangy, beautifully local flavor pairing. In my opinion, this is what is elevating the chicken meal from good, to great.

所有这一切的最美丽的一部分对我来说,这是我从中国那么了解的菜肴,而是他们在这里与酱汁配对,这是如此纯粹而完美的马来语。

If the restaurant wasn’t so busy, I was actually thinking of asking them to maybe even teach me a few secrets (so I could make it at home myself), I couldn’t get enough of that dipping sauce.

米饭

Finally, the famous item at Kedai Kopi Chung Wah, the thing that draws the customers in – the chicken rice balls.

This rice is just incredible, unique in both appearance and flavor, and wow does it smell great.

起初的气味有点烟,而且我从来没有过,老实说,我的第一次思想是他们用更常见的米饭的更古老的米饭,似乎仍然坚持我的米饭锅底。这是与盘子上的米饭球相同的纹理(最好的部分!)。

当然,他们与你的鸡配对,我忍不住认为这也是我第一次看到一道菜的中国食物,这将适合背包 - 野餐和徒步旅行,亚洲风格!

注意:*在在线进行一系列研究后,您可以了解这些是希望在山上野餐的海南家庭制作。和你的朋友和家人共度时光很棒,但当然它总是更好的食物。这些稻竹是完美的小吃零食,我很感谢海南人与我们所有人分享他们的想法,将这种美妙的食物带到马来西亚。

Generations of tradition in a single superb meal.

The Restaurant

Like the name (‘kopi,’ which means ‘coffee’ in Bahasa Malay language), you might notice that the shop closely resembles a cafe.

It is very popular here to order ice coffee with a meal, but of course being Chinese, the tea is also great.

The amount of visitors here can vary, but its always going to be high. You will be quite lucky to not have to stand in a line for at least a few minutes, so try to get here as early as possible (the restaurant does open promptly at 9am).

他们的位置是堆满了花填充的桥梁,位于乔克斯街的角落,最着名的街道,散步在马六甲。即便如此,我会说这对Kedai Kopi Chung Wah非常值得一开始,他们的独特和美味的鸡肉米饭球的饭是值得的。

Just be careful if you try to park nearby, because the lines on the road (in our experience) do not actually make things clear. (On that note, here is another article from a有趣的时间租车in Asia)

Although a busy place, popular with walking tour groups, this restaurant is still worth the visit, as they have a wonderful and unique meal, a food worth traveling for
