Bubblewrap aka the place which allows us to take some of the most Instagram worth food pics!
With the winter season coming up, most of us are most likely switching up from ice cream to hot chocolates. We however find that switch hard, just because it’s cold, does it mean that we should give up that sweet gooey luxurious dessert? Definitely not. Picture this, ice cream wrapped in a warm waffle wrap. Not just any kind of waffle though, but egg waffles. The dissimilarities in the taste and texture of both these elements while are big, actually perfectly compliment each other. In addition to that, all you social media fans would love it due to it being extremely Instagram flattering. Bubblewrap, located in the heart of Chinatown offers the most amazing, fluffy egg waffles, complimented with decadent ice cream as well as toppings ie.Oreos, Nougat, Strawberries etc of your choice.
Back in the early 1950’s, egg waffles (雞蛋仔) were introduced in Hong Kong and up to this day, it plays an influential role in terms of food culture in Hong Kong. Currently, it’s found everywhere and is known to be a must-have street food. There are many tales to how egg waffles originated. The most classic tale though, derived from thew 1950’s was that some street hawkers/shop owners who did not want to waste broken eggs, and so came up with the concoction of mixing up eggs, flour, butter, milk etc, baked it in a mold and ended up with a crispy yet soft textured golden coloured waffle.
