Barbecued Frog – Shanghai street food

This was a first. I’ve eaten at countless street food stalls and eaten a lot, but never come across any frogs till yesterday. There is a very popular and constantly busy street food stall on Zhenning Lu (cross road is Yuyuan Lu) and yesterday they had freshly skewered frog on display, next to the usual oysters, scallops, squid, fish, chicken, lamb, mushrooms, greens, tofu, etc. I just had to get one. These tasted great – tender and way way better than chicken! Fresh, succulent and dripping with flavour that is typical of Shanghai’s street food.
Good thing is, it’s right next to home, so hoping to go back again and finding these.
