Snack a Day 2008, Snack #14: Kai ping

Another day brought with it another new snack. Sort of. More on that in a minute. Today's snack is Kai ping, or roasted eggs. They're a cheap way to get some needed calories, and a new way to enjoy eggs.

This vendor wanders the streets carrying his coals and eggs with him. I was excited to buy some eggs,

and was also more than happy to buy some sticky rice in a banana leaf.

I passed on the dried squids.

A couple weeks ago a vendor tried to pass off boiled eggs as grilled eggs. The sure give away was the color. It was all wrong, and so was the flavor.

These looked a bit like Saturn. They're gorgeous, and with a bit of soy sauce, an egg has never tasted so good. Often, the simplest food really is the best.
