Malacca and Jonker Food Blogging Trip With Video

On Deepavali Day, I went with bowlingball (of course) and my fellow food blogger, wine kaki on a drive up the causeway to the town of Malacca, Malaysia.

The purpose was obviously to savor the culinary delights of this famous place where it is most well known for it's chicken rice balls and iced chendol.

At the same time, we also wanted to document this trip on video, as we felt it would be more immersive to show you more than just static photos.

Throughout this day trip, we visited a number of well-known establishments, chief among them is the legendary Chung Wah Chicken Rice Ball place, which as expected, meant a queue of at least half an hour before we could get a table.

The video below will also show some of the other places we visited, including Jonker Street and Walk, and we also went to this basement megamall where we discovered a very delightful doughnut and coffee cafe called Big Apple Doughnuts and Coffee.

Famosa Chicken

We also visited Famosa Chicken and found a chendol that surpassed anything we have here in Singapore (and yes, better than my previous post on Jonker's Nyonya Deli in Thomson Plaza). And had more rice balls there too!

We tried to go to Nancy's Kitchen as recommended by The Dirty Stall, but unfortunately we went a bit late as we were not allowed in. Funny enough, maybe because of that, we found a roadside nyonya stall that served up a delightful po piah, rojak and nyonya laksa combo that pleased us no end!

San Su Gong

Opposite Chung Wah was also a well-furnished retail shop called San Su Gong, which is fully decked out with local delicacies and snacks like lau po bing and biscuit kai chai etc. 

In the coming week or so, I will be posting individual blogs on all these wonderful eateries, but for now, I will leave you with a video we shot and compiled for the entire trip, so enjoy! Hope it will whet your taste buds for what is to come ...
