波的多紅燒牛肉麵薯片 Beef Noodle Soup flavored potato chips
If there are "beef and potatoes in butter" flavored potato chips from Hokkaido, shoyu ramen potato chips as limited offerings in Japan, why not Taiwanese style spicy beef noodle soup potato chips?
Available at most local Taiwanese supermarkets, including Welcome (24 hours), some convenience stores.
Look for 波的多紅燒牛肉麵. The chips I recall are kind of like American Ruffles in texture, but it's the flavoring/seasoning. Perhaps it is the kind used in instant beef noodle soup packages, but hell it tastes good, all the way down to the spice!
There is also a 蚵仔煎 (oyster omlette) flavor that's also quite surreal in flavor. And strangely does taste almost like the real thing (including the nori powder that elevates the flavor)!
The company that makes these chips is located in Taichung.
