EMINENT FROG PORRIDGE AT LRG 19 – Singapore Geylang Unique Gourmet

Mum doesn’t like it and doesn’t eat it but I do, it’s awesome, it is soft, tender, sweet and taste awesome delicous, just perfectly done like we do with chicken fillet. I usually have them in dried chilly stir fry or even with pan fried slice fresh ginger and fresh sping onions. While my stay in Singapore, I got the chance to indulge into dishing it at Geylang, Singapore. Me and Jak got ourself into the taxi heading toward Geylang for this awesome gourmet, the claypot frog porridge. While in the taxi, the friendliness of our driver (truely singapore) had recommended us to this restaurant called eminent frog porridge at “lorong 19″ lane 19. You want to know why? We were informed that the restaurant offers buying two frogs, get one free . . . . sounds like a fanatastic bargain, and we truly agreed without any negotiation.

We were back again at Entranze for a full lunch, this time we make sure we ordered our food from their menu so that we were able to taste those spoke about dishes.

DSCN6272

The first thing I ordered was their Grilled Salmon Fish Head with Teriyaki Sauce. I loved this particular part of the fish especially those, Salmon and Garupa. The Salmon fish head served was awesome, no fishy smell, and yet the texture of the meat was firm and went well to my liking. The grilling was perfectly done and sure able to taste the present of sake and black pepper, so well marinated. While pricking into the fish with the pair of chopstick and dipping it into the terriyaki was such an awesome experience, it just melted in my mouth with the unique taste of the terriyaki.

Next came this dish called Gyu Shoga Yaki (Pan Fried Beef with ginger sauce with japanese onions). The beef was thinly sliced and stir fried. The taste was good, simple and with an influence of Chinese.

We also had pan fried chicken with chef’s special made sauce. It was gorgeous but I got to say I was so into their side salad as it was very awesome delicious.

Here came the lamb shank, it was tasty, crispy on the outside and meat is so tender and delicious. It came with homemade mashed potato which was smashingly delicious and not from those dried potato flakes which taste horrified. There were also cherry tomatoes, green beans and cauliflower.

Strangely came a huge plate fill with a variety of pan fried sausages. There were chicken and turkey filled with garlic, herbs and black pepper. It was tasty but I prefer to have thicker ones.

I thought we were going to have deep fried spring chicken but this devil looks rather smaller, oh! It was the “Sar Thin Kai” brought from Perak. It was nice, the meat was tender and the skin was crispy.

"Jiao Bai Sun" with XO sauce

“Jiao Bai Sun” or “Kao Pak Sung” is a very interesting type of vegetable and it is an imported seasonal vegetable from china. It looks like bamboo shoots but they are not. I was told that this vegetable grows on water. It has a very unique taste, I would say it taste a mild bitter like petai, really unique.


I have them cut into pieces and pan fried them with XO sauce…. a very unique dish.
