Frog Porridge and Oyster Omelette

My favourite place to eat frog legs porridge and oyster omelette! No need to go Geylang and sweat over parallel car-parking!

My colleague had a craving for these today, and hence, we were there AGAIN! HAHA! The only bad thing is that the tables are small – can only fit 6 people at most! Our table is always filled to the sides. And the place is super crowded and a little dirty.

Frog leg porridge: 1 for $8, 2 for $16 and 3 for $22.

The 宫煲 (gong bao) flavour one is the best! Spicy and fragrant! The frog is not the mini small ones, but quite large ones, which are meaty and their meat is so irresistably chewy! The gravy that comes with it matches the plain white porridge perfectly. The plain porridge comes in small, medium and large sizes. They also have it in ginger-onion (姜葱) flavour, which is more suitable for those that cannot take spicy stuff. Seriously, why is it that so many people not be able to take spicy stuff?!?! They are missing out so much food! Next time I will post on spicy steamboat (麻辣火锅).

There is also this stall that sells carrot cake, oyster omelette and Hokkien mee. All of these mentioned are FANTASTIC! The Hokkien mee is not too dry, nor too soggy. And the mee has that prawn flavour all infused! The oyster omelette ($5 or $8) is crispy  and  do not miss out their chilli sauce!!! I usually don’t dip chilli while eating oyster omelette. But this one is super good that I can’t resist! The carrot cake has a lot of egg with it, and almost every bite of it is with egg. YUMMY!

      Hi Ivy, the recipe for spring onion-ginger frog: Click Here

      I have never tried to cook this on my own. The taste of “gong-bao” is difficult to imitate. But I guess the seasonings are oyster sauce, dried chilli, sugar and soya sauce.

      Where are you from? ^^
