The day time view of Jonker Street is a bit different compare to the night. There are few antique shops, souvenir shops, traditional biscuit shops, Chinese herbals tea shop and etc. If you came to Jonker Street during the day time you must try the famous hainan chicken rice shop – Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Balls and Chop Chung Wah. The chicken rice they serve here is a bit special, it’s in ball shape and the chicken they served here is smooth and slippery! Every time i go to Malaka, i must visit Jonker Street to have one of this Hainan Chicken Rice! If you didnt try this i’m sure you will regret!
