Best Remixed Snack Food

Siamese Peanuts at Hawker Fare

James Syhabout's Siamese peanuts will make you forget Cracker Jack ever existed, and, possibly, that other food ever existed. They're salty-sticky-sweet-savory all at once, roasted and tossed with sugar, chili, spices, and shrimp paste for a flavor that's fishy and funky and pungent and like nothing you've ever tasted. This is Hawker Fare doing what Hawker Fare does best: flavorful, layered, occasionally unexpected Asian street food, served in an unpretentious setting and with a premium on intense flavor and unfussy preparations. Also, and very importantly: these peanuts are only $3. Run, don't walk.
