Nostalgic EggettesYou haven’t tasted Hong Kong until you’ve sampled a treat from the side of the street.
There's always a crowd waiting in line for fresh waffles and eggettes at Yi Heung Yuen, located on the street behind Sogo department store in Causeway Bay. But the final piping hot paper bag of delicious treats is well worth the wait. Loved by kids and reminding adults of their childhoods, each batch of waffle-like “gaai dan jai,” or eggettes, gives off a sweet, buttery aroma. When done right, the outside is crisp while the spongey filling provides an affordable, addictive bite. Nowadays, eggettes also come in chocolate, black sesame, or black & white (half chocolate, half plain).
