Restoran Kok Keong Melaka Famous Yam Rice

Restoran Kok Keong has been around for over 80 years in Melaka and they are famous for their yam rice. Located at the corner shop, they are next to Aw Hai Thian Chinese Temple at Jalan Kampung Pantai.

Restoran Kok Keong Melaka opens from 9 am to 2.30 pm daily and they are closed on Sundays. The challenge is to get a parking space here and you probably find a few if walk around a couple of minutes.

We read that Restoran Kok Keong has been around for almost 80 years. Their specialty is yam rice as well as their pork dishes.

The restaurant is old style kopitiam, no aircon and simple looking place with just tables and chairs. Most times, simple is good as fancy means you have to pay more.

What they offer is yam rice with their unique soup and different ingredients like tofu, lean pork, pork ribs, pork liver and pork intestines.

Their soup is herbal soup and it has similarities with bakuteh. Their version is lighter in taste so it taste similar but actually different.

The tofu is soft and the kids loved it. Personally, I love the lean pork meat and the pork ribs.

For the pricing, it is still value for money compare to Kuala Lumpur prices and for the taste, it is pretty good. We wish that there are more yam in their yam rice but understanding the increase of food prices, we understand. The tofu is addictive while soup is light and enjoyable.

Restoran Kok Keong Melaka Famous Yam Rice will not burn a hole in your wallet and this is a nice place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. You can also walk around this place to check out the old buildings of Melaka.
