Gamja Gamja Garlic Potato

Note: This establishment is already closed.

I hate passing by this mall's basement because I never fail in buying these yummy garlic potatoes.

Gamja means "potato" in Korean.

Gamja Gamja Garlic Potatoes are deep-fried diced potatoes then glazed with secret ingredients and sesame seeds on top. What I love about Gamja Gamja (aside from the potatoes) is the packaging. The cup (as shown above) has a lid with a hole big enough for you to get one piece at a time (they are not using toothpicks but a two-prong stick).

This is what Gamja Gamja Garlic Potato looks like:

You can buy Gamja Gamja in three sizes: Potpot size (Php 39), Jaja size (Php 49) and Garlee size (Php 59). Gamja garlic potato is a bit sweet and a little salty. You would also notice that there are grated carrots in the glaze mixture.

Overall, Gamja garlic potato is a good alternative especially if you're having a craving for potatoes but don't want to get messy by eating fries. It's also less expensive than Potato Corner.

It's a nice treat while waiting for a shuttle or bus ride.

  1. A great alternative for fries. Might try this one although Korean food is not on my list.
