For those who may not be familiar with chicken rice balls, it is basically chicken rice that is slightly stickier rolled up in balls, giving it a unique texture when consumed with the meat dishes.

While it is undoubtedly a specialty in the state of Melaka, today, we’re going to check out one of the chicken rice shops in Klang that also offers chicken rice balls at Yew Pin Chicken Rice.

Yew Pin Chicken Rice is situated along Jalan Meru by Station Jalan Meru of LRT3, a stone’s throw away from Klang Parade. Parking is usually an uncomplicated exercise as this isn’t a very busy area of Klang.

The interior is simple, clean, and thankfully, air conditioned for your comfort.

Choices of meat here are chicken, roast pork, or chasiu (bbq pork) to go with rice that’s served in rice balls, or the usual style.

The steamed chicken here is as competent as any in Klang, but the star would be their roast pork, with crispy skin, proper amount of fat vs meat layering and just the right aroma of 5 spice. The chasiu is pretty middle of the road, I’ll always go to Spring Golden for that instead.

Together with those rice ball and their generous (basically unlimited) amount of minced ginger and spicy home-made chili sauce, lunch was always a very satisfying affair for us there.

Try it! Klang isn’t only about bak kut teh.

    There was an old man selling chicken rice balls in Kuching in the 70’s long before I knew of such a thing in Malacca. I used to buy from him. The steamed chicken is wrapped inside the balls which of course, was quite big. It was so very nice!
    Yes, the roast pork here does look more impressive…than the chicken.

    I love how you’ve described the atmosphere of the place Рsimple, clean, and air-conditioned. That’s definitely a big plus, especially when you’re enjoying a good meal. And speaking of good meals, the roast pork with its crispy skin and perfect balance of fat and meat has got me sold! ? I might have to make a trip to Spring Golden for their chasiu though, as you suggested.

    But what really caught my attention is the generous serving of minced ginger and spicy homemade chili sauce. ? Those little touches can really take a dish to the next level. I can imagine myself piling on the ginger and chili sauce, adding that extra kick of flavor to every bite.
