Crispy Frog Legs & Foie Gras Ice Cream at VOX Table

June 11, 2015

VOX Table

I don’t eat frog legs. They’re one of the few things on my small list of things I do not eat. One, frog legs are dry (they do taste like chicken), and two, it’s gross. So when I saw Crispy Frog Legs on the menu at VOX Table, I ordered them for the sake of taking a picture of them for the blog. I took a tiny bite, and was surprised that the frog legs were incredibly tender, juicy, and crispy with the light quinoa breading. The wildfire bleu cheese and herb noisette really elevates the dish!
