Ling Kee Beef Jerky: Around the corner from the East Broadway subway stop on the edge of Manhattan's Chinatown is a small shop called Ling Kee Beef Jerkey (sic). The shop sells pork, chicken, and beef jerky by 1/4, 1/2, or lb sizes, each laid out in stacks under a bright heatlamp. The shop specializes in Malaysian Jerky, which I hadn't had before but remind me a lot of Taiwanese beef jerky, which is nothing like American packaged jerky. Typically, asian jerky is moist, with a glistening, sweet glaze rather th... (read more) 4.5/5.0

Bricolage Crunchy coconut curry beef chips: On principle, I typically don’t write reviews of snacks at sit-down restaurants (my current working definition of a snack is an item that by itself is not a full meal and can be eaten with one hand on the go - I know it doesn’t work for everything I review here, but that’s the best I’ve been able to come up with). But the crunchy coconut curry beef chips from Park Slope-based Vietnamese gastropub Bricolage are too special not to review. Razor-thin slices of beef come in a fun resealable pack...

Trader Joe's sweet Sriracha uncured bacon jerky: This distinctive snack has a great crispy exterior and is sliced thin, so it's just chewy enough. The flavor is complex and surprisingly potent; more spicy than sweet, but well balanced. Unfortunately, it's very salty, but it's great in small doses. 4.0/5.0

Perky Jerky original turkey jerky: A solid jerky snack with moist pieces of marinated turkey. On the sweet side overall, though it's balanced out to an extent by cracked black pepper. Each bag has 2 servings, making it a relatively pricy snack at almost $5 a bag. Still, it's high protein content makes it more filling than other savory alternatives from the Leanbox. 3.5/5.0

Golden Island Korean barbecue pork jerky: Like most Asian jerky (this one originated in Taiwan) the meat is covered in a sticky glaze, unlike American jerky, which tends to be dry seasoned. I expected some strong and spicy gochujang-like flavoring but instead got something more sweet than savory, almost like a meek teriyaki sauce. The pieces are also sprinkled with sesame seeds. Ultimately, not as authentic as I hoped it would be. 2.5/5.0
