Hoe Kee 4,6, & 8 Jalan Hang Jebat (06 283 4751/012 623 8431).
Massively popular Hoe Kee is where it’s at, if you’re looking for chicken rice balls (chicken rice moulded into pingpong sized balls, the state’s unofficial signature dish). Endure the long wait (bring an umbrella!) and you’ll be ushered into the spacious interior, designed like a traditional Chinese house. Service is brisk and the chicken rice balls are some of the best you’ll find in Malacca. Child friendly. Mon–Fri, 9.30am– 5.30pm; Sat & Sun, 9.30am–7pm. $
