Good things must be shared!
A few months ago, my colleague introduced me to this website: Irvin’s Salted Eggs.
They specialise in making delicious potato chips and deep fried salmon skin, seasoned in delicious salted egg sauce!
The very thought of it sounds so good. As it is, salted egg sauce is already delicious. Add that to potato chips and fried salmon skin? It’s the perfect combination! And for SGD$15 per bottle, why not? It’s about the same price as a bottle of Chinese New Year snacks!
The first time I bought it, it was from their temporary pop-up booth at Harbourfront Centre. The taste was amazing! In fact, since the first bite, I was hooked!
I had to get more!
It turns out that they do free deliveries for orders above SGD$100. So I got a bunch of friends, and together, we ordered SGD$500 worth of salted egg goodies.
I had it delivered to my office.
Unfortunately for me, my colleagues tried it, and loved it so much that they pleaded to buy over my own stock. So, that one time, I couldn’t enjoy a whole bottle to myself.
This led me to make another order.
This time, together with my colleagues and friends, we were legion! We ordered SGD$1200+ worth of salted egg goodies!
I’ll probably place another order again. My colleagues and people from neighbouring offices are asking for more!
You’re probably wondering, which tastes better? The salmon skin or the potato chips?
BOTH!!! I LOVE THEM BOTH!!!
If I had to choose one, I’d go for the potato chips because it is with the chips that you really get to enjoy the fullness of the salted egg flavours.
There’s a whole host of flavours going on. There’s a note of sweetness, a tinge of spiciness, and of course, the amazing taste of salted egg sauce. Mmmm… The curry leaves are, in my opinion, the reason why everything tastes so amazing.
But the salmon skin is amazing as well!
If you like fish, you really have to go for this!
What makes their salmon skin really good is that when you eat it immediately upon delivery, you really can taste the amazing freshness of the salmon! I don’t think I’ve ever had a fried salmon skin snack that was ever that fresh. It’s amazing. The salted egg flavour is there, but it is not as strong as the chips. It’s probably due to the taste of the salmon that makes the salted egg flavour more subdued.
Oh, before I forget, they also have salted egg sauce!
You can use it for ANYTHING! Just add to to your stir fry and you get delicious salted egg goodies.
Here’s some photos of delicious salted egg goodies cooked by my friend’s mother.
Not only do these dishes look good, I’m told the sauce makes it all taste so good.
Anyway, once again, here’s the website: Irvin’s Salted Eggs
They do free deliveries for orders above SGD$100, which comes up to at least 7 bottles of salted egg chips and/or salmon skin. But their demand is very high, so you’ll have to wait about 4-5 weeks before they can deliver to you. I strongly recommend placing mass orders.
