The birth place of Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball ?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As a Muarian, I knew Hainan chicken rice ball was footed and invented in Muar, not Melaka. In other word, Melaka is hijacking Muar for the original birth place of Hainan chicken rice ball.

Tribute should go to the Hainanese

SINGAPORE and Malaysia’s claim to Hainanese chicken rice and Malacca’s claim to chicken rice balls (The Star, Sept 24) all lack historical perspective.

If there is anyone who has a moral legitimacy to stake a claim for this dish, they must surely be the people in the Wenchang district of Hainan Island, China.
