I've always heard the superb frog porridge somewhere in Geylang, but never managed to drop by. but this time with large families coming together for a holiday, we had 2 big tables to fill at 10PM!Of course, we ordered the frogs - spicy and non-spicy for the little kids, porridge, and other dishes of vegetables, tofu, and steamed fish.It took quite a while with lots of people still laughing and eating their hearts out around - what a way to spend such diet late at night!

It took quite a while with lots of people still laughing and eating their hearts out around - what a way to spend such diet late at night! But anyhow, when it came, I didn't know that the porridge was in a pot and dishes on the other - I've always thought it's a portion that comes together.
It was served in a claypot similar to Mr.Curry's bowl.
And so, the food:
Porridge was indeed, different than many. It's more watery, as the rice is much more 'crushed' and although there isn't much difference, it does have a different taste to it.
Frog was AWESOME. ACTUALLY, THE sauce is. the meat can be anything, but in this case the frogs legs were soft and thick in its meat. The sauce was cooked with chopped chilli so it's spicy but it was just awesome. Pour over the sauce over the porridge and it'll be delicious.
Vegetables are a pass, the fish was fresh so the meat was pure white but not recommended as it was over $100! It doesn't just apply here, from my experience, fresh steamed fish are commonly charged at a very high price. Never ever order this at most restaurants!
Rest of the dish was good enough like any Chinese restaurants, and the chopped grilled pork is addictive with its crispy skin compared to roasted chicken chops.
I ate too much for supper but whoa, i couldn't stop, the dishes were really pulling my appetite away! Even when the porridge was long gone, we ordered more frogs (and in the end another pot of porridge). The chilli sauce mantau was also interesting, everyone should try!
