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.

    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.

      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.
