The famous Geylang Lor 9 frog porridge is here in Malaysia, right at Jalan SS2/61 in PJ!
The small shoplot is located in the same row as Red Island cafe. Space-wise, it isn’t very big, with probably 15 tables and could seat 40 people comfortably at any one time. The interior is very clean, with an open kitchen where you could view your pots of porridge being prep up. Sadly though, there wasn’t any frog chopping action 😉
You can have your frogs prepared 3 ways; with Spring Onions, Dry Chilli or cooked in your porridge.
Then add to your order, sides such as vegetables, tofu or even chicken if you wish. But FROGS are the main thing here, obviously.
I added an order of Fried HongKong cabbage, (though I seriously wondered if it’s any different from the normal “kailan”) (RM12).
Anyhow, it was surprisingly VERY good! Sweet & crunchy & cooked to the right degree, the vegetables was lightly tossed with some soy and oil. The top pile is deep fried leaves, and the bottom are the blanched ones; with both leaves and stalks. Non – fibrious & extremely pleasant to eat!
Service was pretty fast, we got our orders approximately 10mins after & every dish came freshly prepared. Our order of a SMALL pot (RM12) of porridge could easily feed 2.
There is DEFINITELY 1 WHOLE medium sized frog in our pot. Legs, breast, back, ass, front legs..check check check. All accounted for!
Even the drinks and condiments on the tables were of quality. (Singaporean owned perhaps? 😉 ) For example the sesame oil was fragrant and thick. Our herbal tea tasted freshly brewed & wasn’t watered down horribly. Certainly can’t complain for the price at RM1.60.
Though I’m not a fan of porridge, I wouldn’t mind going there again. This place gets packed pretty quick too. We were there for dinner at 630+ and by 730pm almost all tables were taken up & most were families.
