Singapore Eat: Bukit Timah Live Bull Frog Claypot Porridge (武吉知马砂煲活田鸡粥) @ Cheong Chin Nam Road

Bukit Timah Live Bull Frog Claypot Porridge (武吉知马砂煲活田鸡粥) is located among a row of restaurants along Cheong Chin Nam Road in Bukit Timah, very near to Beauty World MRT Station. As the name implies, the 2-storey restaurant is popular for its claypot frog porridge cooked using live bull frogs.

The restaurant has two cooking styles for the claypot frog meat: the spicy dried chilli style (宫保田鸡) and the non-spicy ginger spring onion style (姜葱田鸡). The claypot frog meats are best to go with porridge that is cooked in claypot too. Note that it will be cheaper to go for more frogs, so gather a group of 4 (due to their small tables) to dine at the restaurant.



There were 5 of us and we went for a claypot of ginger spring onion bull frogs and two claypots of dried chilli bull frogs with porridge in another claypot.

The dried chilli style claypot frog is super spicy where chilli padi are added in addition to the dried chillies but the taste is very good — do inform the staff to reduce the spiciness level if you are not into too-spicy stuff. Regardless of the cooking-style, the frog meats are very tender and the dark sauce is great to go with the white porridge.

We also ordered other cooked dishes such as sambal kang kong (spicy too) and fried eggs with prawns...

And fried pork ribs too to complete the meal.

Overall, I like the claypot frog porridge at Bukit Timah Live Bull Frog Claypot Porridge as the tastes are good and not too-salty but I will tone down the spiciness level next time.
