Tao Kae Noi

The voting has ended! I hope I can be one of the 5 winners. Thanks to everyone that had voted for Catscity.

This is one of my favourite snacks. I know… I know… You don’t have to tell me that a female Singporean blogger had blogged about it ages ago. I got addicted to this even before she got hooked with it. Just that I didn’t blog about it.

How I came across this snack? Actually my bro bought it from a Supermarket here. I’ve tried the hot & spicy and wasabi flavoured. That day I was craving for it, so went to buy it at Watsons as they have offer for it, summore it’s bigger packet than the one that we used to buy.


One packet cost RM6+ and two packets were only RM9+. So I took one orignal and one hot & spicy. When it’s time to pay the money, %#@$&()^ There’s no offer at all! GOSH! I felt so cheated. I found out that the offer only applied to 2 packets of the same flavour. Damn expensive! Supposed to save money but ended up spent more than I expected. So not worth it! What to do… Sigh…


Put that aside, now let’s the how it looks like. It’s not like the usual seaweed snacks that you usually see in the market. The texture is different too. First few sheets tasted kinda odd but after that you could get hook! Really don’t know how to describe. I can only tell you that I like it hahaha…

For your information, the product is made in Thailand not Japan. Hahaha…

    I love it… I surprisingly love seaweed… in my next life I’d like to be re-born as a turtle… or a ravenous sabretooth tiger, if they ever come back into fashion. 😉

    […] Carving for Tao Kae Noi and went to buy but then I saw Hhun Film next to it which is cheaper by few cents. So I decided to try this out. Not as good as Tao Kae Noi. Tao Kae Noi has bigger pieces and lightly flavoured but Hhun Film got lots of small pieces and heavily flavoured. Don’t like, don’t like. I still prefer Tao Kae Noi Hehehe… […]
