Tasty and expensive30 April, 2010 by Yan
This is a sister pack of Japanese snacks that I bought together with the Konbu Snacks that I have written previously. Forgive me for my slow posting on the roasted pressed scallop snacks but here I’ll finally present a small review of its taste.
Stretching almost 3/4 the size of the bag, the scallops give the impression that it is quite a huge snack. In reality though, because of its pressed nature, it feels like you are eating a piece of paper. I really could tell that the scallops used were actually quite small, just that they are pressed very thinly to make the surface area huge.
Seasoned with a just a little bit of salt, you could taste the flavor of the sea in the scallops…at least that is what I wish I could say. Alas, other than its unusual shape and slightly different texture, the snack tastes almost exactly like dried cuttlefish. Bear in mind that in Singapore, one could get a huge packet of dried cuttlefish for only $2. Each $10 bag of this snack only contained 4 pieces of pressed scallops.
