Malacca: Chicken rice balls

We joined the ever-present queues to get into Chung Wah restaurant for its famous chicken rice balls - essentially cooked Hainanese-style chicken rice shaped into ping pong-sized balls, served with poached chicken (flavored with ginger, garlic & sesame oil) and a spicy chilli-lime juice dip.

The rice balls were mushy but quite tasty, and gets quite addictive after you get past the half-dozen mark. Not too enamoured with the poached chicken though - tasty but seemed a bit tough, especially the breast-meat.
