What is an egg waffle?

Egg Waffle

In Hong Kong, people call egg waffle gai dan jai (雞蛋仔). Sometimes it is called egg puff, eggette, bubble waffle or egg puff.

It is said that the owner of a grocery store originally tried to add flour, oil and other ingredients to broken eggs in order not to waste them, and then poured into a mold and cooked it.

Later, the mold was improved and designed into a small egg shape. This happy accident became the most classic and authentic street food in Hong Kong.
