I met up with fellow blogging BBC, Sophia, at long last and after brunch and a spot of antique window shopping in Sheung Wan, we caught the MTR and walked the short distance to Oddies on Wan Chai Street.
Oddies is a Western fusion dessert destination, serving up the infamous, traditional Hong Kong egglet waffles (雞蛋仔) with ice creams and other typically ‘Western’ sweet treats to create insanely photogenic and tasty concoctions. I went for the classic Night Wolf (HKD52) and Sophia opted for the kitsch Dr. Oddies which came with its’ very own caramel sauce injection.
Night Wolf would be a good choice if you want something with classic flavours and a modern mix. It has a chocolate chip filled Hong Kong egglet waffle popped on top of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, with a base of banana(?) cheesecake. Literally the best. Sophia’s choice was a delectable fusion of traditional Chinese flavours – think ginger and chrysanthemum – with chocolate and caramel to sweeten things up. Incorporating jelly and sauces, hers was definitely one for all senses.
Oddies also offers savoury and sweet fusion egglet waffles on their own, as well as an extensive menu of other desserts and frozen yoghurts.
