Frog porridge in Singapore can be divided into two types. The first is as the name suggests, frogs cooked in porridge.

The second and more widely-known type are frogs cooked in a rich, flavour-packed sauce, usually in a claypot, and served alongside plain Cantonese-style porridge.

Plain congee is necessary as it doesn't compete but instead accentuates the rich flavours of the sauce, making the overall meal a hearty, satisfying one.

And for those who haven't tried frog meat, it really does taste like chicken thighs and isn't as scary as it seems.

Here are the 10 best places to get frog porridges in Singapore:
