TL;DR – Singapore’s national snack.

If there is something we should be proud of as Singaporeans, it should be salted egg yolk. You see salted egg yolk everything these days, from buns, croissants to crabs, prawns and even salted egg waffles and ice cream! But the best way to indulge in this golden goodness has definitely to be with potato chips. 

Here are some of our favourite places to get them:

1. The Golden Duck
The Golden Duck, Salted Egg Yolk via

Our verdict? 5/5 

Very addictive. Kudos to their original Taiwanese-inspired recipe with its signature creamy salted egg yolk magic.

Price: $7/125g

2. Irvins Salted Egg
Irvins, Salted Egg Yolk via

Our verdict? 4.5/5

#DangerouslyAddictive indeed. Some may prefer it to be less sweet or the skin to be thinner but overall, we like the bits of red chilli and curry leaves for that added spiciness.

Price: $8/105g (small), $16/230g (big)

3. Aunty Esther’s
Aunty Esthers, Salted Egg Yolk via

Our verdict? 3/5

Some of us think that this has a good balance of flavours, with the right amount of sweet and saltiness. There is also a small ball of salted egg yolk inside.

Price: $8.80/100g packet

5. Snacky & Crisps
Snacky & Crisps, Salted Egg Yolk via

Our verdict? 4/5 

The chips are generously coated with a creamy layer of salted egg yolk and there is a tinge of ‘wok hei’.

(Psst.. we prefer their Singapore Laksa chips that come with aromatic scents of coconut, shrimps, spices and even bits of taupok!)

Price: $7.50/105g (small), $16/230g (big)

6. Yolkalicious
Yolkalicious, Salted Egg Yolk via

Our verdict? 3/5

These chips look and almost taste like regular potato chips but they have a good crisp. It is also one of the few Muslim-owned brands.

Price: $4.50 for 65g


8. Tiny Red Dot


Our verdict? 3/5

Light, subtle flavours but still tasty.

Price: $9.50 for 90g
