Delicious Yam Rice Pork Soup Melaka You Should Try

Have you try the delicious yam rice pork soup Melaka at Jalan Kampung Pantai?

When you visit the historic city of Melaka or Malacca the next time, don’t just follow those clueless tourists (both local and foreign) flocking to that same few eateries at Jonker Street area.

There are a lot more varieties of delicious and cheap food available in Melaka town area, than just Jonker Street Delights or Chung Wah Chicken Rice Balls.

If you really want to eat the authentic fragrant Hainanese chicken rice ball, then hop over to Muar or Bandar Maharani, which is an hour drive away from Melaka.

You get the real deal; the rice balls are much bigger and freshly oozing with fragrant chicken taste.

When you are in the historic Melaka town, be adventurous.

Walk away from the main Joker Street Walk or Jalan Hang Jebat.

Stroll around the narrow roads and explore their equally narrow five-foot ways and discover many other local delicacies enjoyed by actual Melaka people.

For a start, walk over to Jalan Kampung Pantai.

It is very nearby to Jonker Street.

This is where Singapore MediaCorp TV crew shot their blockbuster 36-episode TV drama series “Together” (当我们同在一起).

They used this quaint area right in the heart of Malacca lined with old heritage Chinese shop-houses, as the location for its main outdoor scenes.

They used this area as the busy North Bridge Road of Singapore back in the Sixties.

Yam Rice Pork Soup Melaka

Restoran Kok Keong Melaka
Right on this popular location in Jalan Kampung Pantai, there is this corner shop called Restoran Kok Keong (板底街芋饭肉羹汤).

This is where you can enjoy the delicious Melaka yam rice pork soup.

The pork meat soup is filled with slices of pork belly, pork intestine, pork liver, lean meat and tofu (bean curd).

The broth or soup is brewed with herbs and soya sauce.

The herbal taste is similar but milder than the Bak Kut Teh soup from Kuala Lumpur or Klang.

Yam Rice Pork Soup Melaka

It is accompanied with either the plain rice or the yam rice.

My recommendation is you should go for the yam rice.

The pork soup tastes goes well with the yam rice, rather than the usual white rice.

Back ten years ago, this yam rice pork soup stall Kok Keong was patronized by mostly the local Malacca Chinese folks.

But over time, this place has been widely promoted by the local food bloggers, and now it is usually packed with tourists as well.

It is opens as early as 8 in the morning till 2 p.m. only.

The restaurant is closed on every Wednesday.

You should check this popular yam rice pork soup Melaka stall on your next trip to the historic city of Melaka or Malacca.
