The day was gloomy and the smell of rain hung in the air but I was too excited to care. I was going to have some Hong Kong- style waffles and that was what mattered. Also, I was going to see my darlings so everything was alright. It wasn’t everyday that you could eat eggettes (for free) in the company of some of your favorite people in the world.
We almost got lost in Kapitolyo because of the many shops that lined the streets as we wandered and took in everything. And to be completely honest, it was fun. The “getting lost” part, I mean. It’s always fun to get lost in a place with your friends but not so much when you’re on your own. Usually.
In our defense, the shop was quite small so it was kind of hard to find. Also, we were all “directionally- challenged” so that was another factor.
Really though, it was only because we suck at directions. It was actually easy to find since it sat at the corner of the street 😛 Anyway, the size of the shop added to the cuteness factor of the place and it felt really homey, like you’d want to come back again just to sit down, stare at the occasional passing vehicle and maybe eat some eggettes.
I’ve never heard of these supposedly famous snacks before.
Gawd, how uncultured! Egg waffles are basically waffles shaped like little eggs, hence the name. There was nothing much special about the batter but the toppings and the extra ingredients made all the difference. Egg- it had a whole line of waffles with different toppings on them, sometimes wedged within the batter, so all of them had something special to offer.
For some reason, this waffle reminded me of the Universe. It’s so beautiful, isn’t it? Also, bring it on, cavities!
Fresh mangoes!! Day= MADE.
My beautiful babies. I miss them so much.
After having gone through a whirlwind of delicious egg waffles, we left in such high spirits that we didn’t even mind when the rain poured down at last.
