Oleh-oleh Bandung: Keripik Tempe

Literally translated, "oleh-oleh" means souvernirs or gift that one brings home from a trip. It can be in the form of food or souvenirs. Keripik tempe can be literally translated as tempe chips.

Kiripik tempe is a popular oleh-oleh from Bandung.



It can be found in small road-side shops like this one in many different parts of the city, such as Pasar Baru, Cihampelas, Stasion Bandung, and Kosambi.



This is how they fry it: in a huge wok.



And this is how it looks when cooked and ready to be packaged.

Aha, something new for me - I only know tempe as dark brown (tasty though - my mother was a great cook)
