Fatty Frog porridge, Taman OUG

One of the perks of maintaining a food blog, I'd say, is friends introducing food haunts to me :). And I'm lucky to have many foodies friends, always bringing me to try some yummies frequently.

Few days ago, we planned to cook dinner at my place; supposedly buying some wagyu to grill. And within a few minutes of discussion, Gary & Candy suggested for us to have dinner at Taman OUG instead.

Since I'm ok with anything, I let them do the ordering :).
It's always exciting to anticipate what you'll get for dinner right? hehehe
The wait was short and soon, I was presented with this..
Century egg with pork porridge in claypot.
The porridge was velvety and gooey, the century egg was chunky, giving the porridge a range of texture. The sliced pork was Gary's favourite, he said it's tender and very smooth.
The next claypot came soon after- I cant believe I'm having so many pots of porridge that night...
Took a glimpse and hey...not porridge after all..
It's frogs cooked ala kung pou style. Piping hot and lots of gravy, we're suppose to have it with porridge.
The frog's flesh was springy and had absorbed the flavours from it's ingredients. There's plenty of kung pou sauce for you to mix into the porridge- giving the porridge a spicy kick; and with the very hot temperature from the claypot- we were sweating buckets by the time we finished our first bowl. Unlike the usual kung pou, which has it's sauce cooked till dry and clinging to the meat, the kung pou here is more gravy like- hence we could add as much sauce as we like to enhance the flavour of a plain porridge. Very satisfying I'd say, especially on a rainy day.
Gary- lover of fish, cant help but to order a side of steamed fish head..
He ordered the ginger garlic steamed fish. The fish was fresh, the flesh was firm and sweet. One extra recipe in this steamed fish was the addition of chilli padi in it's steamed sauce (not as garnishing, but steamed with). So, when you take a bite of the fish, you'll first enjoy the freshness of the fish meat...and then the heat from the chilli seeps into your taste buds. And you'll wonder why the fish get spicier with each bite, even though it looks so harmless! :p
The bill was RM51 for these 3 dishes- I'm not sure of the breakdown though.
This is the picture of the stall- I dont have the English name of this stall..
The kung pou frog porridge stall is located at 2, Jalan Hujan Rahmat 2, Taman OUG, KL. It's a corner shop, the same row as Steven's Corner.

this is one of singapore's favourite supper staples! so far, i've not come across any with century eggs, so this is very cool. prices are very reasonable too for that amount of food. another gem in OUG!
