Anyone coming to Melaka town, and especially to the area of Jonker Walk will know that it is an absolute pain to have lunch in any one of the Chicken Rice Ball shops here.

Since we did not want to bother, and did not mind having regular Chicken Rice (instead of the balled variety) we headed out of town to a small suburban area where we read rave reviews about its dishes.

no where does it say 'Wilson'

right?

Funny enough, the signboard does not say what the name of the shop is except for the capital “W”. It was much later that we found out the W stands for Wilson, and that this is just one of many Wilson Chicken Rice branches found in Melaka. In fact, there was one Wilson restaurant which was quite near our budget hotel. Sheesh!

The rave reviews were not without merit, and we thoroughly enjoyed the roasted chicken that Wilson had to offer, and its rice was cooked to perfection as well. From the perspective of the everyday food for the everyday man, Wilson definitely fits the bill.
