G7 Sinma Live Bull Frog Claypot Porridge

I was on full steam last week with a few Malaysian friends heading back to their hometown for reunion dinners so we had ours earlier. No doubt Lo Hei was served earlier this year, too! Well, after one particular Lo Hei lunch, I went on to karaoke and then a photography outing to Chinatown to shoot some of the festive mood in Chinatown Singapore. After that, I had supper with my photography kakis, frog porridge! Now, don’t jump (pun intended) at that. It’s yummilicious and you’ll see in my next post 😀

Next is here! Gribbit! 😉

I wasn’t really hungry as I had had a scrumptious huge lunch and lots of alcohol earlier in the day but I was being greedy. I needed to satisfy my cravings for something like porridge or dim sum. The boys who were with me didn’t want to eat either but I always go out with nice people so they relented and went supper with me.

Most places were closed by now since it could be 11pm or past midnight, we didn’t even check our time even though it was a Wednesday with most of us having to work the next day.

I said, “How about porridge from the famous corner shop?” Desmond said he got tired of waiting for table at Chang Cheng so he went to the next shop (during his past few visits and has been eating there since) and the porridge was not too bad. We went there to check the place out. Upon reaching, I realised it was another famous cze char place in Geylang branching out and they are also well known for their porridge, in particular the kungpao style frog porridge!

“Oh, G7 Sinma. They have buy 4 get 3 free frogs menu!” I was happy. It only cost SGD30 and comes with a claypot of piping hot flavoursome congee.

Apparently, they have a few branches across the island now.

We waited quite a long time for our food to arrive and that’s understandable. The porridge needed time to be simmered further to a rich grainless consistency, like thickened congee.

I said further simmered because the porridge is already cooked.
They had to further cook it like reduction?
You get what I mean. I was just being irritating, hahaha 😀

Whenever someone asks how a foreign or exotic food tastes like, the common meat association tends to be, “It tastes like chicken.” It’s so cliche but I’m telling you these bull frogs really do but they were sweeter and more tender than chicken!

Deep-fried Pig’s Intestines was done very nicely with no offensive smell.
Chitterling is usually the small intestines but sometimes, they use the term even for the big intestines.
I guess it is less gross (to some) than to call it deep-fried pig’s big intestines which means sh*t tube.
