Egg Waffles on Lantau

with one comment

Walking through the commercial village between the cable car station and the foot of the Tan Tian Buddha, you encounter a variety of shops welcome you selling everything from souvenirs, chopsticks, ice cream, Buddhist trinkets, along with a 7-11 and a Starbucks. One shop offers an array of local snacks, including freshly made egg waffles. With both original and chocolate varieties, the snack is warm and crisp once the cashier hands it over straight from the cooling rack. Essentially, it’s waffle batter that cooked into these bubbles that are light and flavorful.

If making your way back from the temple and the big Buddha, the shop is a tiny stroll back to the cable car station, and a quick step to the side offers a view of the beautiful landscape, along with Buddha in the distance, of Lantau Island; a veritable escape from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.

While egg waffles are available all over town, Lantau Island offers a different landscape to accompany the delicious snack.
