I never saw this one coming.
This KFC Original Recipe surprised me. After the Chef’s Signature series and then the 25th anniversary flavor retrospective, I wasn’t expecting this KFC x Lays Thailand collaboration.
My spicy frog curry tasted especially good today as I reflected on the latest development in this tale. When I left off last time, I’d been wondering if spending a little more for the premium rat glue might be a good idea.
Lays Thailand continues to celebrate the flavors of the past 25 years. I’d had both of these before, but I don’t believe I wrote about them.
There was the nam phrik phao flavor—something like an open flame chili paste in the translation.
I took a long train ride across 6 degrees of latitude. Bangkok is about 13 degrees north, so I’ll call this a narrow road to the slightly north.
When I got to Bangkok, I went straight to the snack aisle.
On the Fourth of July weekend, I might normally have a barbeque. Perhaps some potato chips too. This year I decided to mix up the menu a bit, so I skipped the potato chips and went for snacks with a higher protein content.
The fruit vendor at the market has five varieties of mango this time of year. Yesterday at the grocery store there were seven varieties on sale. My neighbor’s mango tree is an early one; it flowered in December, I’ve watched from the balcony as the the fruits grew, and I saw them all get picked over the past two weeks.
A lot has happened since my last post about a surprising “Chef’s Signature” flavor.
That includes my purchase and careful happy hour tasting session of a Devil barbecue chip, retasting the signature salted egg and trying a new signature roasted chili flavor.
