Geylang Lor9 Fresh Frog Porridge 芽龙九巷活田鸡粥 @ Farlim, Penang.

*** This eatery has ceased its operation. ***

Craving for porridge at late night for supper ? A fan of Frog Porridge ? There is this restaurant near Air Itam that sells fresh frog porridge which I have found recently when I was patronizing the area, according to the name card given to me, they are a branch from Singapore (main branch). Other than the branch here, there is also another branch in Tanjung Tokong Food Court. Selection wise, was rather limited, aside of their main selling dish-fresh frog porridge, they do serve fried egg with preserved vegetables (菜脯), stir fried vegetables etc, which most of them could work well with porridge. Price ranging from Rm6 to Rm10, which is very affordable and economical to me. The business hour of this restaurant makes it a very suitable place for supper. Recommend this place to night owls whom always hunt for  porridge/supper at late night.

Plain Porridge (Rm2). Customers can mix and match freely with any dishes they preferred. I was quite surprised to see the portion of the porridge since it was just Rm2. Nevertheless, the porridge was still very tasty even though there are nothing inside and was sizzling hot the time it was served. 

Stir Fried Frog With Spring Onions (姜葱田鸡, Rm10 for one frog, Rm20 for two, and Rm28 for three frogs). It works well with the plain porridge, the sauce was perfect and possessed a very strong alcoholic flavor. The sauce complements well with the plain porridge and the texture of the frog was very tender. You can actually taste the freshness and juiciness in the frog well.

Frog Porridge (田鸡粥,Rm10 for one frog, Rm20 for two, and Rm28 for three frogs). If you prefer something light, then you should go for this instead of the Stir Fried Frog With Spring Onions. The taste was still very good indeed and the texture of the porridge was very smooth. The freshness and sweetness of the frogs have blended well into the porridge, ideally for supper.
