Another round table dinner after our 12 km from Redhill to Kallang. We rewarded ourselves with a bull frog porridge dinner at this restaurant. We ordered 8 frogs (S$60). Since 4 frogs free 3, we got a total of 14 frogs cooked into 4 pots, 2 spicy and 2 non-spicy. Then we also order a very expensive fried egg (S$10), deep fried squid (can’t remember how much), and lastly fried sea fish (S$58+). I’m not sure if I was very hungry or it is really that nice but I find the frog porridge very good. The sauce tastes well with the porridge and their porridge is very thick and smooth. I prefer the non-spicy to the spicy one because I don’t like the chili smell it has in the sauce instead I prefer the ginger smell and taste of the non-spicy sauce. All in all it’s great. I had so many bowl of porridge.
However their other dishes is not that nice and definitely very expensive. I can get a much nicer fish of the same size in Clementi for only around 20 bucks but it costs us like S$60 for fish there. Even that bit of fried egg cost 10 bucks. A total ripped off. So in conclusion, it’s a good place to go for frog porridge but maybe not other dishes.

Comment: I only liked the frog porridge among all the things we ordered.
After returning from my CNY holiday at home, I had some gathering with some old friends. We met up for dinner at Raffle City. Initially, we supposed to go for Sakae Sushi but the queue was so damn long so we decided to go somewhere. It was Friday night evening so every was packed. Then we came across this restaurant with no queue. And that how I got to try this restaurant.
We ordered 1 Yu Sheng (S$38.80), Deep Fried Fish In Sweet & Sour Sauce (S$17), Braised Pork Trotters (S$ 27.90), Sweet & Sour Pork Ribs (S$ 17.50), and Radish and Egg Pancake (S$11). The food was not bad. In fact, I think it’s quite good. I don’t often eat Yu Sheng, so I’m not really sure what’s the standard but find this Yu Sheng is nice. The sauce taste good and sashimi was quite fresh too. The Radish and Egg Pancake is something new. Taste is awesome. However, both the sweet and sour dishes were bad considering the price. Lastly, the Braise Pig Trotter was something we order by mistake. It looks kinda disgusting but taste good. The pork is very tender and well cooked. The taste of sauce is not too strong. Overall, I think the foods here are not bad, the ambient, and interior is nice.
