Sure, it's not really such a new thing for us but here, salted egg sauce is dished on to almost every imaginable thing. It's made its appearance in paos, McDonald's burgers, and, my personal fave, Breadtalk croissants, among others.
Why is it so popular? In the right hands, salted egg sauce provides the perfect combination of sweet and salty, making it a tasty accompaniment to various dishes.
One of the more famous egg salted covered eats to come out of this fad is the salted egg yolk potato chip. And here in Singapore, one of more well-know brands is by The Golden Duck.
|The Golden Duck's Gourmet Salted Egg Yolk Potato Chips|
Baked potato chips coated with salted egg powder. Sounds delicious, right? But you have to prepare to pay the price. At S$7 (approx Php238) a bag, it does not come cheap!
But the temptation was so strong that we finally threw our hands up and and bought a bag for the family to share.
Too oily making the chips a bit soggy. And I had such high hopes! I hate oil drenched chips. It is a bit salty and sweet, with a tad bit of spice for a bit of kick.
Is it addictive, as the bag states? Not for me, though. Even the junk food lovin' Hubby had to pass. Not sure if we got a bag from a bad batch as reviews for this product bordered on Outstanding...
But I guess it is an experience, good for a first try. Maybe next time, we'll get luckier. :)
