a window to food

Ever got yourself confused with some food looking similar to your favorite, appetizer or snack? Well that happened to me in the country of Taiwan, hhaa. tell what it is as some of you may be Hispanic or from other countries like Peru, Bolivia , Guatemala , Mexico or even Belize you may know that chicharones are considered a favorite snack in our countries. If you don't know what is chicharones actually it is usually pork rind = pigskin that is firstly seasoned and deep fried. So to tell you I got confused with the Tofu skin in Taiwan one day I thought that was Chicharones and then was told by someone that I was wrong.  I don't have the details on how this is prepared but when I first tried it tasted like chicken skin, no smell so I thought it is okay to eat. Let me show you how it looks like   :
