Frog Leg 3pcs ($16, good for 3-5 if you order other dishes) and Plain Porridge (Small is $2, Big is $3).

Found the frog leg gravy a little too salty; adding just a little bit was good enough, but if you add another piece of frog halfway through your porridge, it ruins the balance of saltiness pretty easily :( Aside from that, love the combination of smooth porridge and tender frog legs with the ginger//spring onion gravy. (Ps if you never tried frog, the meat is like chicken, just much more tender. Though the mini bones will remind you that it's frog you're eating)

Favourite sambal stingray because the meat seems thicker and pretty tender compared to some others I've tried (where the layer of chili is almost as thick as the layer of meat below...)

Aside from the typical zichar veg dishes like kangkong and sweet potato leaves, they have this random combo where you can choose to mix from these three vegetables (e.g. Have them alone, mix two, or mix three). Petai (aka smelly bean 臭豆) is smelly as hell when you put it in your mouth. One of those things the older generation likes and you might suddenly grow to love as well when age catches up. Thankfully the stink did not affect the lady finger and long bean, which were decently good. You can choose to have it with sambal, or non-spicy with garlic. Go with the non-spicy to save yourself from the must-order sambal stingray.

This came with the sides of the omelette overflowing from the plate! Good for $5, but wished that there were more liao in the omelette for some variety in the bite.

Hong Chang Frog Porridge has an array of seafood dishes in addition to the main thing. We always order the sambal stingray (very good) and gong-gong. Unfortunately the gong-gong this time wasn't very meaty. If this is your first time trying, be warned that it's kinda tasteless. Dip just a bit of their chili, which really packs a punch in the spice level and a good hint of sourness.

Our favorite sambal stingray place...

Their stingray is meaty compared to others; every bite is so succulent & together with the fiery sambal chili, this is a damn shiok dish!

The broth was pretty good especially when I grew up eating the one from Queensway. They were pretty similar except this was slightly less spicy! Pretty generous amount of the prawns as well, can do with or without crayfish though. I went for it as I was in the "treat yoself" mood.

This spaghetti prawn pasta aglio olio is really worth having. $19 with chunks of dory fish slices along with prawns? Wow it's a steal. On top of that the dried prawn paste is makes the dish really flavourful with the right balance of spiciness and a distinct prawn taste.

Hits and misses with this dish. The pistachio lava cake was really nutty, strong pistachio flavour and cake was a little crispy on the outside with fluffy inside. I had issue with the fact that the lava gave way from the bottom instead of the side when we attempted to cut through. I also didn't like the lukewarm temperature of the cake. The cold gelato totally overwhelmed the lukewarm cake. Still it's a very good experience having only tried molten chocolate lava cakes previously.

Soup was not as rich and flavourful, would be better if it was less oily. Pork ribs were tender but portion of both prawns and pork ribs were small. Still, was thankful for a comfortingly hot bowl of prawn noodles on a rainy day

A bowl of medium sized freshwater prawns will set you back about $5.50 while the ngoh hiang is appx $10. They have pork ribs, pig's tails etc too. Place was bustling with activities when we reached around 12:30pm, just in time for lunch.

I went for bee hoon which is slightly thicker than those thin version others are offering. Personally felt the soup was underwhelming and slightly oily but then there are those who might prefer this. Thoughtful gesture on their part as they have handmade paper bowls for one to throw away prawn shells.
