Chili Crisp is all the buzz with American food lovers. I have been at the center of this newly found obsession, as evidenced by the bounty of Chili Crisp jars in my fridge that I regularly incorporate into my noodles, fried rice and egg dishes. So, when I came across Kari Kari Chili Crisp, there was no question that I would try it. Now, I may never buy another brand again.
Kari Kari is the Japanese word for crispy. The name bolsters what so many crisps promise, but never deliver – serious crunch! Every jar is packed with thin slivers of garlic and shallots, fried to perfection. They are the crunchiest crisps I have ever had. The flavor is a tongue-tingling, smoky umami with balanced heat that won’t overwhelm a dish. Kari Kari simply must be tasted to be believed. And it’s now available in all Market of Choice Specialty Cheese shops.
