The weekend crowds that swarmed and queued to eat boiled Chicken and rice balls in Jonker Street is
a hot and sweaty affairs and too touristy.
I would not do that even if, it's for free !
We found a quieter and not too crowdy place (nearby our hotel) to savor both farmed boiled chicken/roast chicken with 30 pieces of firm, round and fluffy rice balls and a good red chillies sauce for dip.
Plus another three side dishes i.e. nutritious black bean/chicken feet soup, stir fried crunchy Chinese round cabbage and a clay pot of spicy and sourish Assam Senangin (Threadfin) chunks with assorted vegetables.
A great and wholesome meal and reasonably priced.
Parking is ample.
