Saporito Gourmet Salted Egg Potato Crisps
The coating on this one is made from high-grade fresh organic salted duck egg! If you're a fan of all foods organic, then this one is for you. The salted egg flavor is more subtle and the chips are sliced thicker, so it's the flavor of the potato chips that stands out.
Available at The Clean Plate, UP Town Center, Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City; Tub: P390
Little Miss OC's Kitchen Salted Egg Chips
A tad crisper and this would be higher on our list. Although the generous coating of salted egg gives it that strong, rich flavor you're looking for, they weigh down the chips, sacrificing the crunchiness. For this particular brand, the flavor is the real MVP.
Available at the Baker's Dozen Weekend Bazaar, Power Plant Mall; Tub: P290
Chips That Feel
Thanks to the ridged potato chips, the salted egg coating clings to the chips a little more thickly. Get this if you prefer yours extra heavy on the salted egg or if you're a fan of ridged potato chips. We would suggest you eat just a handful at a time or share the golden bounty with your friends; it may be a little too rich to eat solo. P.S. We love the hugot lines on the packaging! You can choose from I Deserve Happiness, Tama Na, and Stressed Ako among many others.

The Blue Kitchen Addicting Salted Egg Potato Chips
These chips have just the right amount of coating-enough that it feels indulgent, but not too much that it ends up being too rich. The flavors are both on point, but the chips could be a little more crisp. Nevertheless, they are as addictive as the other brands higher on this list. It's also great that these chips are conveniently available in any Blue Kitchen outlet. No need to text or message to order, you just grab a bag when you visit one of their stores.

Kettle Kitchen Premium Salted Egg Potato Chips
This one is also full-flavored and registers high on the crisp meter. It is generous with the curry leaves, liberal with the salted egg coating, and has just the right amount of heat, so there's a nice balance of flavors. It is also quite addictive, but we caution against finishing the entire tub since these chips are a little on the rich side.

Andy's Good Eats
Slightly on the spicy side, these chips have just the right balance of crisp and flavor-and excellent restraint. The salted egg is definitely there, but you could eat a whole tub without getting sick of it-still, you'd want to share if only to be able to enjoy the feeling of introducing something so instantly addictive to a friend. Just make sure to get more than one tub!

What we love most about this one is that it showcases the salted egg potato chips' unmistakable flavor profile without going overboard with the salted egg coating. Salted egg potato chips in general are pretty rich, but this one manages to taste just as good without being too heavy. Plus, it's sold at a very affordable price!

House of Crisps
This is the gold standard for salted egg potato chips in Manila. You can tell they didn't scrimp on the good stuff-each and every chip is coated generously in that golden salted-egg goodness, the heat is just right, and the curry leaf flavor is subtle but distinct. When you bite into each chip, you get hit with a pretty powerful punch of that distinct salted egg potato chip flavor. Another feat is that, despite the thick coating of salted egg, the chips stay crisp. Extremely addictive, you can't just have one chip or even just a handful. Chances are you'll finish an entire tub before you know it. These truly are "irresistibly irresistible."
