Gotta Gets – Okra Crisps

DSCN1703

 

When it comes to crispy snacks in Japan, I tend to pick up Calbee potato chips. Calbee changes up its line-up frequently and it gives me a good excuse to buy something to snack on.  When we saw these okra crisps at our local Tomizawa Shōten shop we were so curious. What would okra, which is so slippery and slimy when cooked, be like when fried up? It was a hit in our house. We went back to the store and bought several more packs the next day. They are crispy, the seeds inside the pods are crunchy, and it is well seasoned with salt. Great with beer, sake, or shōchū. Something so good for you must still be good for you, even when deep-fried, right?

Tomizawa Shōten has shops throughout the city including Shinjuku Keio, Yurakucho Lumine, and Shibuya Seibu.
