Potato Crisps in Dedza
A must-try when visiting or passing through Dedza are Potato Crisps.
The Crisps, which are nowadays also found in Lilongwe, were originally popularised as a Dedza speciality.
This is because Dedza is famous for its Irish potatoes.
Available in salted, garlic and spicy chilli flavours, they are thicker than potato crisps sold in supermarkets and have a very addictive crunchy texture.
They are reasonably priced at MK200 a bag, but once you try them, you’ll be addicted and won’t be satisfied with just a bag.
On the way from Lilongwe to Blantyre, past Dedza Boma, around the Puma Filling Station at Dedza Road Block, young boys are walking vendors.
