This local street food could be found anywhere on the busy street in Hong Kong, aside from the famous Lee Keung Kee North Point Egg Waffles that is recommended in the Michelin street food guide, there are other stalls in town that should not be missed too.
Master Low-Key Food Shop
Situated right outside of the crowded central Hong Kong at a neighborhood area in Shau Kei Wan. This stall has been gaining lots of popularity among the locals and tourists who will make a trip over just to have the Egg Puff. It lives up to its name even though it is not “low key” anymore but it is indeed a master of making good egg puff.

What did we order?
The best egg puff
Waffle with toppings of peanut butter, condensed milk, and sugar.
**By default it would have 4 toppings (Margarine, Peanut Butter, Condensed Milk, and Sugar)
Now we know what is all this crave about. The egg puff is so perfectly done with the crispy outer layer and creamy, chewy taste on the inside, which will make you addicted to the taste and it is not too sweet. Hence, you will not get sick of it after savoring too much.
The egg waffle is to die for too. Initially, we were curious why there are so many different toppings in the waffle, wouldn’t taste of the waffle be too overwhelming? Well, we were wrong the toppings blend together perfectly and with every bite, you can taste the different topping in the waffle. Thumbs up for making such a delicious snack and it is definitely worth queuing for.
