Located in Chinatown, Eggloo was a big novelty last year, being omnipresent on instagram. This place that sells ice cream in Hong Kong egg waffles is still popular. No wonder: these waffle cones are fantastic, light and addictive, and their ice cream delightfully creamy. For people like me used to the classic cones that the Ben & Jerry's or Coldstones of this world offer, it is fun to go there and try the various combinations you can make, combining the egg waffle (original, green tea or chocolate, the later being my favorite) with various ice creams (vanilla, cookies and cream, etc) and with unlimited toppings (on that one, I wonder how it would look if you ask for all of them). Original ice cream, besides the monsters that can be served in restaurants like Bagatelle, is now a trend with other ventures like Wu Kong or Taiyaki, all different. But I feel that Eggloo has its place and will continue to indulge there.
Here is what I tried:
Vanilla ice cream and regular egg waffle with condensed milk and graham crackers:
Cookies and cream ice cream and chocolate waffle with condensed milk and Oreo cookie:
Enjoy (I did)!
