For him who do not eat this type of snack(typical American) said it's good,then it's must be good!! lol!

my mum loves this snack! I've never tried it before all these years in singapore, because I get very disturbed by the idea of eating the shrimps with the shells. now i realise they actually can be eaten and add crunch and calcium! maybe i'll try this next time i go back to singapore (:

I like this type of fritters too but the small Asian store here don't carry taro often. I have to go all the way to Philly to get it.
