Frogs at Geylang

*Just remembering my meals in Singapore

A trip to Singapore isn't complete without a trip to Geylang. No, not for chickens but for frogs. Seriously. Geylang is well known for its frog porridge and at almost every street corners, you'll find restaurants serving frogs. We meet a friend who had just started working in Singapore and was recommended to try the frog porridge on Geylang Street 3. 

We ordered a Fried Mango Chicken as I do not eat frog. Yes, I find them disgusting, even more so after watching the Japanese video on eating live raw frogs. Ewwww... 

The chicken did not have much mango taste but was fried to perfection - crispy and juicy. 

We ordered 2 types of frog - 1 spicy, 1 non spicy. According to the guys, the frogs were really good. They both find it tasty especially for the spicier version. 

Total meal came up to 16sgd per pax for 3 person. 

Besides frogs, as mentioned in my previous blog post, I had lunch at the Arthur Center Food Court. 2.50 sgd for a big bowl of fish ball noodles. 

 While waiting for our friend, Rockstar and I also had a snack. Old-style crackers sandwich with butter slices. Super yummy. Have to buy crackers and butter for my breakfast now. Tea and biscuits for 2.80 sgd. 

And to end this post and my trip to Singapore - a sight Rockstar spotted along the highway and had to wake me up to snap a picture of - Cows on a lorry. Something you don't see everyday... :)
