It was only this year that I’d learnt to not only consume frog, but also learn to appreciate it. Pre-2019 me would’ve never imagined a present-day me requesting a visit to a frog porridge stall when the weather threatens with thundery showers.
Which is probably very apt that my visit to S7 Live Frog Porridge came at an impeccable timing, when the skies relentlessly poured. Geylang is known for its late-night operations, in both seedy operations and supper staples. Prior to this, the only landmark I would deem worth my time is 126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi; I can’t get enough of their chicken feet!
Now, I’m so proud to say, I’ve found another supper haunt that’ll soon become one of your favourites as well.
The immediate stand-out quality of their Claypot Frog Porridge (S$10 for one to two pax, S$16 for three to four pax) was the smooth consistency of the porridge itself. To say it resembled mush would sound like an insult, but its velvety and thick consistency was one of the reasons I grew fond of it almost instantly.
The frogs were served in a claypot, teeming with spring onions, and completely immersed in thick gravy.
