Origin Story: Lu Rou Fan, a braised pork over rice dish, is considered one of Taiwan’s comfort foods, making it a natural fit to try to cram into a potato chip. For this version, Lay’s has teamed up with Formosa Chang, a restaurant famous for its lu rou fan that has grown from its humble origins as a food stall into a chain with dozens of locations in Taiwan and Japan.
