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 different dissonant flavours that some may describe as pungent or even repulsive somehow come together as something so addictive, that one is simply not enough!

From mao shan wang to super black gold (former is slightly sweeter), I had my fill of quality and fresh durians at The Durian Story and that absolutely made my night!

It was an awesome evening of durian tasting. We started from the durian of the lightest flavour - Mao Shan Wang, then moved upwards to Wang Zhong Wang, Black Gold and ended with Super Black Gold.

Gosh. I've never tasted so many premium durians in a single seating before. This is taken during an invited tasting.

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.

But to (almost) all locals, this is the bomb, especially during durian season! Such is my love for fresh, quality durians at The Durian Story. Tried 4 different types and this black gold (pictured) is my favourite of the night!

Its flesh is custardy, soft, creamy and has a slightly more bitter aftertaste than the more familiar cousin mao shan wang. If you prefer less sweet, this is definitely for you!
