Hong Chang Eating House – BBQ Stingray and Frog Porridge For Supper
Located along Braddell Road, Hong Chang Eating House serves prata in the morning, economic rice in the afternoon and BBQ seafood and frog porridge for dinner. After working late night, my friends brought me to Hong Chang Eating House for supper. When I shared it with a friend, she said,”Don’t post about this place on your blog! Else later so crowded I cannot get a seat anymore.” Come on, I don’t think it will be that bad lahhhhh…..
MUST TRY their sambal stingray! Smothered generously all over the stingray, their spicy sambal is the killer. The stringray is BBQ-ed till it is crisp on the outside, yet moist flesh from within. Lime is squeezed in right before eating. The sambal is so shiok till I keep eating more of it even though I am already having Angelina Jolie’s sexy red lips. It is served with cincalok (fermented krill) and a squeeze of calamansi lime.
We also ordered a porridge with kong pao frog leg. The umami dark sauce has a nice smokiness to it. Even though it was a little spicy (but not as bad as the sambal of course), it lacks that numbing sensation – which is not a bad thing for me. There were a few options on how you can have the frog cooked, you can also have it with ginger and spring onion. Frog prices start from $8 (1 pc), $13 (2 pcs), $16 (3 pcs) and $22 (4 pcs). Plain porridge costs $2 (small) and $3 (big).
Honestly, when you have good sambal, half the battle is won. Because you can just fry it with sweet potato leaves or sotong, and the dish will speak for itself. Want to buy a bottle of sambal home? Sorry, they don’t do it because it is just too much work.
I think I have enticed you for this because even for myself, I am feeling my stomach growling as I am typing this post. A friend saw my photos and drove all the way there just to packet home their sambal stingray! If you are driving, not to worry, they have a small carpark space right in front of the eatery. It’s time to jio your friends down for supper!
