Posts Tagged ‘fried taro’

This photo was taken on a random street in Bangkok on our search for Chote Chitr restaurant (reviewed on NPR and NY Times – story on that later), it was very near to the restaurant on the main road.  Although the weather was scorching hot and humid, I just couldn’t pass by these hot treats because they invoke a lot of childhood memories for me.  I have actually never had taro chips “hot off the fryer” and it was amazing to me that they had this type of set-up outdoors (but then again, they cook anything by the side of the street in Bangkok).  I bought two bags for the total of about $1.30USD.  The woman tossing the chips was very grumpy and unfriendly but who cares, it was all part of the experience!

Mmmm...hot oil
