Hong Kong is one of the most bustling island countries of the world attracting a lot of international business, tourism, and backpackers like me. For that purpose, it’s bound to have have some amazing desserts, and in large quantities too!
Right in the center of the city is Oddies Foodies where you can order delicious ice cream and egg waffle parfaits. Egg waffles are a huge dessert meme in Hong Kong, and are gradually spreading to other parts of Asia. They are softer and have more of a milky taste compared to regular waffles. I ordered the cookie dough flavor and was very impressed with how mouthwatering it was! The chocolate syrup they drizzled over it made it taste even better. The best part is, you could eat egg waffles for breakfast and dessert!
While I was exploring the night market near Jordan Station, I found a small food stall that was selling coconut jelly out of a real coconut. I can’t remember the exact name of the stall, but you can find these all over the country if you walk along the streets of the markets. Compared to jello found in America, this coconut jello was a lot creamier and tasted more like pudding. In Hong Kong-styled cooking eggs are often used but the taste is never overpowering. I thought all of the street food I tried was extremely delicious (yet sadly caloric).
My last meal in Hong Kong was a lunch set at Hello Kitty Secret Garden. I ordered toast, strawberry ice cream waffles, and a cute milk latte:
This was another caloric meal, but it was extremely satisfying. All of the portion sizes in Hong Kong are much larger than in Japan! The food is a bit more expensive, but you really can’t go wrong with it because it’s all delicious. If you are on a budget, I would check the street stalls because they have a lot of variety as well.
