The Golden Duck Gourmet Salted Egg Review
The salted egg chips craze in Singapore started two years ago and we reviewed the famous Irvins Salted Egg last year and you can read it here. Then, we went to check out the other brand from Singapore, the Golden Duck Gourmet Salted Egg. Currently, these two are the biggest brands in Salted Egg Chips and Fish Skins.
Irvins Salted Egg is available in selected kiosks and often sold out. The Golden Duck Gourmet Salted Egg on the other hand is available in some 7 Eleven stores (we found it in Orchard Road) and other major supermarkets like Marketplace by Jason (in Orchard Road).
For pricing, it is very competitive and not much difference as Irvins is priced at S$8 (for small size) while Golden Duck Gourmet Salted Egg is priced at S$7.30.
For the review, you can watch our video and remember to subscribe to our channel yeah. We enjoyed this as much as we enjoyed Irvins Salted Egg. We tasted the Golden Duck Gourmet Salted Egg Fish Skin. The fish skin is crispy and coated with the salted egg and you can spot the crispy curry leaves. The salted egg taste is not that heavy and this comes with hints of spiciness aftertaste. Probably it comes from the curry leaves and it is the significant difference of Golden Duck Gourmet Salted Egg with other brands (including Malaysian brands).
When it comes to taste, it all depends on personal preferences. You can either love it or hate it, there is no right or wrong. Even for food tasting and review, we often take consideration of the origin of the food as well as understanding the taste of the food. Coming from Malaysia, our taste bud is very strong so we might find other food in other countries bland.
For Golden Duck Gourmet Salted Egg, it is tasty for sure and as we mentioned earlier, it comes with a hint of spiciness aftertaste. We love both products so we buy both of them.
Golden Duck Gourmet Salted Egg is available in some 7 Eleven Stores and most supermarkets.
