New Recipe Frog Porridge ; Penang Food


Is porridge always for sick people? Well… judge by yourself at the end of this post after you read what I ate with my porridge.

The porridge was served in a claypot so that the heat can be well maintained. You can slowly enjoy the porridge until the last drop and it’s still warm.

The porridge is smooth and fragrant with glutinous rice taste. The porridge is thicker and slightly stickier compare to Sin Geylang. I guess it’s due to glutinous rice.

The Kung Po Frog was also served in a claypot. It tasted spicy and fragrant too. It’s spiciness is slightly higher than average, so for those who can’t take spicy, you may want to make it a note to the person who take order.
The only drawback of this dish is the gravy tend to be too little, as I like to mix the gravy with my porridge. The spicy gravy goes so well with the plain porridge.

Other than frog, eel is also served in this restaurant. We ordered Ginger and Spring Onion Eel. The dish is fragrant with ginger taste while the eel was tender and smooth.

    Foodbin,
    I guess it’s farmed ones as I don’t think they are able to catch so much wild one. :P
