A Crunchy Good Time In Kuching

Also known as prawn fritters, this snack is made out of small prawns embedded in tasty batter before being deep-fried, which makes for an addictive crunch each time you take a bite.

Of course, prawn fritters aren’t at all an exclusive dish to the state of Sarawak but Kuching does have a decent selection of the crunchy albeit oily snack.
