Its a fish ball ... no, its a rice ball!

It's December, with loads of holidays and lots of time to kill, roads trips are a definite must. And roadtrips have to have food involved ...

Took a trip down to Malacca ... the historical town
 of Malaysia. It feels awesome just being a tourist in your own country. There is so much to explore, so much to see, enjoy and experience. I love the heritage sights .. and if you know Malaysian history well, you'll enjoy it even more. Sad to say, those spots have now been commercialized and there are dozens of peddlers there... 

Enough about that ... what's a trip to Melaka without Chicken Rice Balls? Perhaps I didn't know where to go .. but for the place I went to, deco was awesome ... in fact they decorated it to be more like a museum than a restaurant. Honestly, the chicken was pretty much tasteless, the taugeh was a wee bit too salty and the herbal tea tasted like iced syrup.

What is this doing in a chicken rice shop?

The only thing to shout about must be the rice ball itself. Unique in its own right, I don't think it can be found anywhere else in Malaysia, or perhaps the world! The rice ball has its own flavor ... good enough to eat as a snack alone. There is a tinge of ginger and margarine in it ... ooh! The fragrance!! Food can indeed become art.
