It’s all about this unique all-time favorite food from Hong Kong.
The egg waffle is shaped like an egg, in Chinese it’s called 雞蛋仔 (literally meaning little eggs), and it is one of the long standing popular street foods in Hong Kong. It’s one of the favorite childhood foods for Hong Kong people.
The Hong Kong style Egg Waffle is a unique street hawker food. Piece by piece they come in a golden coloured honeycomb shape and gives out a rich aroma of cake flavour. It is in fact hollow in shape … it gives an extraordinary experience when bitten as it has a distinct crispy texture but soft on the inside.
It is originated in the 1950s, in an effort to make use of some cracked eggs, an Asian grocery shop’s owner made an attempt of developing this egg batter. Sugar, flour and evaporated milk were added to an egg batter and was poured into a honey-comb metal plate to cook into a waffle.
Traditionally, the Hong Kong Egg Waffles are made over charcoal flames. It was a long process and took time, average 10 mins but really worth the wait. However, most people nowadays use electric stove tops due to cost efficiency and safety reasons.
