Yes…..you read the title right…..we ate frog legs. Being chinese, you would think I would have eaten a lot of weird stuff already. Wrong!
I have never had frog legs before. Let alone frog lets in a hotpot.
So the story goes, we were walking down the streets of Hanoi feeling adventurous. We didn’t really have a goal in mind, nor did we have planned to go a specific restaurant in advance. We just hopped onto a cab, and got off the street that had a lot of restaurants.
A lot of local restaurants. Meaning there were no english menu, and talking to the staff would be a time waster.
We settled on a local restaurant that had hotpot.
We sat down, and was confused. The staff stared at us like we were idiots. I then randomly pointed to a the table next to us, which had a bowl of “meat”.
Little did I know we ordered frog legs. Was it good? Yeah…it tasted like chicken…but don’t think I will have it again next time haha….
