New Secret Restaurant 阿南砂煲活田鸡粥

2 weeks ago, hubby and I ran some errands in Butterworth. After that, we drove around that area to hunt for food. Of course, we admit we are not good hunters. We lacked of idea on what to eat, cuz we are not familiar with that area. Furthermore, it was a rainny day. We were not in a good mood to consume heavy meal. Ended up we dropped by this restaurant called New Secret Restaurant 阿南砂煲活田鸡粥. It's located at Jalan Ong Yi How.

Looking at the menu, basically we can choose either claypot field frog porridge, or a plain claypot porridge with either one type of field frog stuff. So, you will not waste much time on the menu.

This is the clay pot porridge. Just plain porridge. To our surprise, it's very smooth and a little bit sticky. It must be cooked under long hours for sure.

Without a veggie dish, the meal is not considered as satisfying. Hence, we ordered a plate of Lettuce with oyster sauce and meat floss. Although it is just a simple dish, but it goes well with porridge.

Between the "kung poh" clay pot and "ginger-spring onion" clay pot, we decided to choose the later - field frog with ginger and spring onion (姜葱田鸡). The meat is fresh, smooth and tender. Hmm...taste wise, although it's no bad, but there's still space for improvement. Hopefully for my next visit, I will be able to taste the difference.

Address: 6172, Ground Floor, Jalan Ong Yi How,
Kawasan Perindustrian Ringan Teras Jaya,
13400 Butterworth.

Wah ..... when porridge is served in a claypot, it is undeniable will be very tasty and smooth !!

I will go and test it out and compare it against the famous Jln Alor & Singapore Eminent frog porridge.

I get crazy over frog porridges. lol ...

email2me, hey, welcome here! The porridge is too sticky. I prefer the watery and smooth porridge more than this.

Hey, i've tried this too. It's quite near my house. Not much biz and not much variety. The food is not bad but dunno why hubby kept saying the food is not well cooked.

Our Journey, I see, you stay at that area. Hmm...To me, the porridge is too sticky lor, and the field frog dish that I order was not really flavorful.
