Spicy Frog With Broth

The other night my friends took me to this shop, somewhere near Tesco, Ipoh Garden South... Their speciality is claypot porridge taken with claypot ginger, dry chillies cooked with frogs...... frogs?.... FROGS?? yes, no kidding ... u heard me right... (in chinese teen kai)

Do not be alarmed.. these special type of frogs can be eaten, grandmothers alike will tell you that they are good for our skin, especially cooked with porridge for toddlers to eat... dare to try?


very smoothly cooked porridge, I love it...


nah, this is the cooked Frogs...
not yucky, right?
in fact they are so tasty..
yumm yummmm


ok, if u don't like frogs,
u can take this grilled spicy fish
sprinkled with some lime juice...

  2. well.. frankly..u wouldnt taste much of the meat but with the dried chillies and ginger, it is delicious.. the flesh must not be overcooked.. anyway, after cutting up, u dont know which part is which.. just eat it up!

  4. hi dear, this is very common in SG. Can have it in many places. There is also a wide range of cooking style in the claypot. Can have ginger with spring onion, dried chilly, or cooked with the porridge. The frogs here are also slaughter live before cooking, so the meat is nice and fresh.

  10. The flesh is very smooth if it is just nicely cooked, and it is more expensive than chicken meat.. :)

  19. My parents (or grandparents?? cant remember exactly) said to me that if one has skin problems, rashes etc, he should eat frogs to cure it. I guess, there must be some truth in it ya?

    I think I tried fried frogs when I was a kid. It was cooked with dark soy sauce, a bit of lemon juice, sprinkles of chopped spring onion...it was delicious! :)
