Whoa! It's my first time to eat fried frog legs, that oh so loved cuisine of the French and the Vietnamese! And the verdict? Well, as the cliché goes...it "tastes like chicken." Hehe. Well, wikipedia has an explanation for the cliché (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tastes_like_chicken): that chicken, in truth, has a bland taste because of its lower levels of glutamates or that which makes food savory. Hence, anything that tastes bland would be referred to as tasting like chicken.
In any case, I finished two frog legs that evening. (My dear friends Myra and Amiya helped me eat the rest, of course. And thank you Ms. Bubbles for this treat!)
