It's crunch time ~ Munching down on crispy crunchy delights
In Japan crooked teeth are known as yaeba, and are considered kind of cute. However these babies needed some braces work over the past year to keep my munching methods happy. Now the time is coming close for them to come off and my pearlies to glisten - and a return to the world of crispy, crunchy braces breaking food.
Some of my tortures - I had to suck the meat off these crunchy quail at Lao Village and leave behind the crunchy little bones.
This uber crispy pork from Home nearly broke a bracket.
Thank goodness for the soft boned chicken at ATL Maranatha, it was a metal mouth's delight.
I've had to dance around ikan bilis (peanuts are too fiddly and the anchovies are crisp), detour on crisp and crunchy chinese broccoli and chop most things into baby sized portions. I even avoided kang kong as the long lengths of green would get wrapped around the pointy bits and cause me grief. Don't even mention munching on the pork crackling at Porteno. Ever wondered why I eat so much soup?
So to celebrate the lifting of the metal veil, I'm looking for suggestions of super crunchy, super tasty street food. Shawn has suggested the toffee coated sweet potato at Yee King Noodles as a starter - so where else can I take my newly smooth choppers and what should I eat?
