You thought my Hong Kong coverage was over? NO WAY, SON. This is a Hong Kong flashback Fly&Dine-style. That photo up there? It’s an egg waffle (aka eggette or gai daan jai) at Lee Keung Kee. I had no idea what Lee Keung Kee was, but when I was trekking back and forth to that mediocre tailor I saw a long line and when I’m overseas and see a line for food, I wait in it.
I’m glad I did. As it turns out, Lee Keung Kee is all sorts of famous and their egg waffle was so so so good. Super light and airy with a subtle crunch as you bite into each little egg pocket. In terms of flavor, the coconut-tinged sweetness was perfect right out of the fryer. For around $2, you get a massive rolled-up waffle that would be hard for any one person to finish on their own. My only regret is that there wasn’t some sort of whipped cream or jam to spread on it. That might just be the fat American in me talking, though.
