Vietnam used to be French colony, so the frog leg dish was brought to Vietnam since then. The taste and texture of frog meat is about between chicken and fish, and it can be eaten as main dish in a meal. It is a very popular dish on all restaurant menus in Vietnam because frog meat taste best when eating with hot cooked rice or in hot-pot with all variety of herbs. Fortunately for me that I don’t have to catch alive frogs and prepare the dish from scratch, I just have to buy the frozen one in plastic packages at all Asian supermarkets. If you ever have chance to travel to Saigon, Vietnam – make sure to drop by Ben Thanh market where people sell the alive ones.
