Salak - "Snakeskin fruit" in Toronto??
Hi, all. I was fairly recently in Bali and fell in love with this Indinesian fruit called "salak," which translates to "snakeskin fruit."
So yummy...like a mix between a nut and an apple.
So, any idea if I can find these in Toronto? I've tried my Asian grocer on Burnhamthorpe but no luck.
Hi! I have not found unpeeled Salak in Toronto yet. However, I buy it pre-peeled every year at the CNE (I am eating some as I type this. Crunchy and moist) from the Indonesian snack vendor in the International Pavilion. Unfortunately, the CNE/Ex is only open through Monday (Labour Day). (I am also unsure which variety of Salak it is.)
(I also stock up on various snacks like emping and the like while there.)
