Chill ‘n’ Chat at Hoe Kee Chicken Rice, Jonker Street

Last Friday, I was invited to visit Malacca by YB Wong Nai Chee, the Member of Parliament for Kota Melaka, for a food review and to chat a little about politics. It was a nice breezy trip down (drizzling along the way) to the cultural state of Malaysia. We started our journey from Puchong at 10.30am and arrived at Melaka Raya almost past 12.30pm.

Upon arrival I gave Wong a buzz and the ever friendly politician quickly agreed to meet up at the Mahkota Parade. I told him about my food excursion and he suggested chicken rice ball at Jonker Street.

We headed to Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Restaurant to try out the Hainanese chicken rice. My elder brother was excited at the opportunity. It was his first visit to Malacca and he had wanted to try out the famous chicken rice.

The lunch was marvelous and the host, YB Wong, was warm and friendly. We would like to thank him again for showing us around.

Chill ‘n’ Chat at Chef Loong Restaurant

Guess who is my special guest in this segment?

Yes, it is DAP’s rising star and economic adviser to its Secretary-General. But to me, Tony is a friend first. I met him when he was still a CEO of his company, Cyber Village Sdn Bhd. It never crossed my mind that Tony the CEO will one day take a plunge into politics.

We were looking for a restaurant to do a food review and stumbled upon a restaurant in SS2, the Chef Loong Restaurant. It offers a wide range of mouth watering desert and ‘tong sui’.

Want to know more about Tony and our food review? Take a look at this video.

Next week, there is another personality (a ruling government MP) on the show. Watch this space! We will introduce you to another highly regarded restaurant.
