I used to think I was a beef jerky connoisseur because I pulled over at Woody's Smokehouse on I-45 halfway to Dallas and tried a different variety of jerky every time I took a trip north. I also thought turkey jerky was pretty adventurous. That was before I visited the store in Hong Kong City Mall called Kho Bo Houston. Kho bo means beef jerky in Vietnamese. I had no idea the Vietnamese were such jerky enthusiasts. Beyond dried meat and fish products, the store seems to sell all kinds of dried fruits, nuts and candies. I saw dried papaya, dried jackfruit and more than a dozen varieties of dried plums in various seasonings.

Dad's Day Gift Idea: Gourmet Jerky Assortment

There were several truly amazing flavors available, like spicy lemongrass beef jerky and ginger beef jerky, and then there were some truly weird jerkies -- how about some fish jerky with sesame seeds? Or maybe some anchovy jerky? It's a jerky store like none you've ever seen.

If Dad is a jerky guy, this is a great place to get him a gift basket for Father's Day.
