I’m not one to join bandwagons. For example, I could not get into:
1) Olympics (except for the Ryan Lochte mystery—I want to know the truth!!)
2) Pokemon Go
3) Stranger Things
When every Filipino was hoarding Cookie Butter, I was not impressed.
Basically, if there’s a bandwagon, I’m not interested. That’s why I was in doubt when everybody started posting Irvin’s salted egg chips on Instagram.
I had tasted the local version from Salcedo Market and found it greasy.
Then my friend Grace went to Singapore for a business trip. I asked her to buy for me and my dad. When I finally tried the real thing this afternoon, I couldn’t stop raving about it, like this deserves a blog entry.
They are truly addictive!
Some people say the fish skin version is deadlier than the potato chips, while Grace thinks it’s too greasy. As for the potato chips, I had 1/3 of the bag at the office and 1/3 for dinner (I know, I’m unhealthy).
The last 1/3 I am saving for tomorrow.
How I wish I could import these to Manila, but they are being rationed in Singapore, so I think it’s kind of impossible for now.
If salted egg is your thing, you could always try Jonas’s Salted Egg Fried Chicken at BGC. Not bad, though I wish they would serve it with plain rice, with more skin, and use other chicken parts.
