Geylang is famous (as well as notorious hehe) for a couple of things. In terms of food, Frog Porridge is one of the popular food around here that is greatly enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. So it isn’t surprising that this food managed to venture into neighboring countries. One of the them – Geylang Lor 9 has taken advantage on the food’s popularity and now they have chained restaurants in Indonesia, China, Taiwan and also at SS2, Petaling Jaya.
OK before you go “ewwww, frog legs. yucks” on me, let me just say that frog leg is an absolute delicacy if they are well-prepared to remove any bad smell. Once you get over the mental factor you would certainly appreciate it. The flesh is smooth, tastes sweet and contrary to popular beliefs, no it doesn’t taste like chicken at all.

porridge

The plain porridge is available in three sizes S/M/L priced at RM3/4/5 respectively. Taste wise it was nothing really different from any other porridges – plain and regular. You could add some sesame oil or white pepper for extra seasoning if you want but I recommend using the gravy from the frog legs arriving later.
Also, do note the porridge has a very thick texture to the extent of being quite lumpy and gluey. So if this is not the kind of porridge you fancy then you should very well know what to do lah.

The frog porridge I had in Geylang only had porridge, frog legs and maybe a few vegetable dishes. But since Geylang Lor 9 is a chained restaurant, they needed to have more dishes to cater to a larger group of customers. So besides the oh-so commonly eaten Kung Pao (dried chilies style) and Kiong Chong (ginger and scallion style) there are also some fried chicken and omelette.
Just for comparison, the spiciness of the Kung Pao style here is much milder than the one I had in Singapore. I was tearing up (literally) the last time but then the spicy kick was so enjoyable. Anyway, this might be because they are a chained restaurants hence need to adjust the seasoning to appeal to the public. But if you ask me, I prefer Singapore’s original level of spiciness, with loads of bird’s eyes chilies thrown in.

I wouldn’t recommend the Ginger and Scallion Frog Legs, unless you really cannot handle any spicy food at all. We find it to be salty, or maybe you prefer how my friend phrased it “wow so salty, good ah! It’s like drinking light soy sauce!”

Maybe it’s due to lack of competition here, the frog legs are not cheap. It won’t cost you an arm and a leg but it would be RM12 for every frog ordered. Well, at least the frogs are slaughtered live before cooked so the freshness is top notch. The meatiness is just right too, since skinny frogs have no meat while big frogs have tough meat.

Three claypots of frog legs, a large porridge, and six cups of Chinese tea brought the bill to a total of RM81.80 with the frog legs alone costing RM72, kinda crazy eh? Like I have said before, if you can handle spicy food just forget about the Kiong Chong frog legs and just order the Kung Pao ones. Trust me it will make your experience far better than ours, because we ordered two Kiong Chong ones, big mistake ah!

    我来这家田鸡粥吃,在吃啊吃,当吃到很爽,突然来了十多个客人,客人又要做在两个壁的桌位,我们刚好就在他们的中间,在我吃着一口又辣有香的田鸡,我的桌子好像有轮子的那样离我而去有一尺半,我的心情突然变的好像很酸,又要站起来把我的椅子向前移,让那后面的顾客可以两桌在一起,我就觉得我们好像不是他们的顾客被歧视的感觉。在也吃不下那顿饭了。喝也喝不下了。我就叫他们收钱。
    在怎么好吃,服务态度真的很重要。谢谢中国报把我的信息转给这家店。这家店是在KSL city 旁边的店铺。

    Had the worst Mother’s day dinner ever!

    As for my mum condition, she only can take porridge so I decided to bring her here for Mother’s day dinner.

    Reached and sat down and waited for 15 mins for the waitress to clean the table and leave us with menu. Saw a woman who had dinner there walked to the kitchen- glass counter and shout at them – rice and vege dishes on table more than 20 mins and other food not out yet.

    Ordered 1 plate of tofu, 1 plate of mix chicken chop, 1 plate of kailan and 1 pot of frog porridge for 1 pax from an unfriendly waitress, waited for 15 mins the frog porridge arrived following by other dishes after every 5 – 10 mins. All the dishes are on table and waited 20 mins for 2 plate of rice! Even they served us the wrong chiecken chop which is to be mix chicken chop- 2 flavor lemon and thai chilly instead of lemon flavour only! DOnt bother much on this issue.

    Informed waitress and they served 2 plate of rice with their sour face. Mum dont eat much(hardly eat) thus, we asked the balance (more than half pot with plenty of pieces of frog) of the frog porridge to be pack to take away.

    Asked for bill after 10 mins and ask where is the pack food..being informed by the kitchen boy already thrown away and only a word of “sorry” by the waitress without any optional choice given to us. We are not being calculative of the remaining of the food but at least give an optional choice like pack half of the frog porridge to customer as customer no need to pay extra buying another food for someone to have it at home later.

    Due to its a Mother’s day we dont want to argue much and just walked off but I will surely wont come here again.vv
