MPOV: Kedai Makanan dan Minuman Hong Kee

We were in Malacca recently and had a late lunch here. Not crowded but was buzzing with customers. The coffeeshop was also neat and approachable.

One thing's for sure, you must be able to speak Mandarin in order to survive in Malacca. Everywhere we go, the first dialect the locals speak is Mandarin. If you can't verse in Mandarin then there'll be difficulty in ordering your food right.

Thankfully, our order turned out right but we had trouble ordering our soup. Another point to note, there's no soup accompanying the chicken rice in Malacca, unlike in KL. So don't expect free soups here ya... if you want soup, you need to pay for it.
Missed out the photo of our simple vege and pork soup
The coffeeshop's facade
Truth be told, the chicken meat was so juicy tender, the 'siu yoke' skin was so crunchy yummy and the 'char siu' was tastefully made. A worthy and fulfilling lunch albeit some communication breakdown LOL! In fact, I think this is the best chicken rice I've had so far in Malacca! A unassuming coffeeshop which the locals prefer to frequent is always the best bet as opposed to those famous and expensive ones at Jonker Walk.

Our total bill was RM38, inclusive of 2 glasses of iced Chinese tea and 2 plates of rice, which is averagely priced for such a meal. It was appetizing, fulfilling and affordable to boot for such coffeeshop ambiance.

My rating: 4/5
Location: No.8, Jalan TKL 3/7, Sek 3, Taman Kota Laksamana, 75200 Melaka
Type: non-halal
