I know it was so last year, but recently I just tasted a local salted egg potato chips and I was blown away, that I started looking for ways to get hold of the original, the Irvin’s from Singapore.
Then hubby decided to join a Porsche racing lesson in Sepang, Malaysia and I wanted to come along solely because I wanted to go to SG for the Irvin’s. So anyway, after our trip in Sepang, we stayed for a night in Concorde Hotel near Plaza Singapura, where an Irvin’s and Sephora are located. They were my targeted to-go places on this trip, aside from a lunch at Marché Somerset.
I was disappointed with Irvin’s. It was just a little past lunch time and they ran out of potato chips already. There were only about 20 big packs of salted fish skins left. The big packs cost SGD16, and the small packs were sold at SGD8. I’ve tried the fish skins before and I loved it so I bought a couple of packs. The guy from the Irvin’s said that even the other outlets had ran out of stocks, and I’m guessing after just a few more customers he will closed down too. How I wish they produce more potato skins. I personally think that they limit the production so the fad won’t go away soon.
Luckily that day, I browsed thru their IG and found out they just opened a #dangerouslymasarap box deliveries to the PH! The minimum order is 1 box, consists of 30 small packs however you mix them, or 15 big packs. A 35 SGD delivery fee is added straight to any PH address.
I immediately ordered mine and received the box 10 days later. I finally got to have my first taste of THE Irvin’s salted egg potato chips after great lengths of finding it!
Now my feedback: I know they are the original, but those that say they are the best definitely hasn’t tasted Tamagochips before. It is for me, still the holy grail of the salted egg chips. It is locally produced and sorry to say that Irvin’s doesn’t even come close to its taste. 😛
Tamagochips still rules!
