Shrimp Chips in Koreatown

popoki321 Mar 5, 2010 11:10 AM

Can anyone tell me if the bakeries or markets in Koreatown sell bags of Shrimp Chips? I usually buy them in the bakery on Mott Street in Chinatown but I will only be in the city for a few hours and I'll be closer to Koreatown. I'm looking for the already cooked chips that are in a clear plastic bag . They are usually white, pink and pale geen.

    the korean grocery store han ah reum on 32nd st has them in the snack section. Not homemade but in mass-produced bags like any other snack. But more delicious in my opinion. I like the white bag with the big shrimp chip photo on the front.

      I haven't seen kropek for sale in K-Town, but you can get Calbee shrimp chips instead. They come in pink bags filled with what appear to be shrimp-flavored french fries. The flavor is also more pronounced.

        H-Mart also sells "Sae Woo Kkang" (excuse my terrible romanization) which is pretty much the same thing as Calbee shrimp chips.
