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.
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.
