Egg-It Hong Kong Style Waffles at Kapitolyo, Pasig

If you’ve ever been to Hong Kong, chances are you’ve seen or even tasted one of their more popular street foods, the eggette.

These spherical waffles have now found their way to the Philippines via Egg-It (a play on the word “eggette”) Hong Kong Style Waffles, a hole-in-the-wall diner at Sta. Rosa St. corner San Roque St., Kapitolyo, Pasig.

At Egg-It, they’ve adopted the popular Chinese snack to Filipino taste, incorporating sweet or savory elements to the waffles, which are usually eaten plain in Hong Kong.

This is my order of Black Pepper Spam with Cheese Waffle – the savory spam plays well against the subtly sweet waffle and the rich creaminess of the cheese. Every bite ends with a hint of heat from the black pepper present in the Spam. They have several sweet flavors like Reese’s, cookies and cream, etc. But, so far, this is their only savory variant, although they told me that they will be adding more in the future.

Jollibee Spaghetti

I’m not a food expert. I just love food. Street food. Fine dining. And everything in between.

This blog will be all about the food that my partner and I have tasted. The good, the bad, and the ugly…

And remember, YMMV – your mileage may vary. Food I like may not be your cup of tea. So take everything I say with a grain of salt.

Okay, enough with the food metaphors. Let’s all enjoy this ride while it lasts.

P.S. I like sweet spaghetti. You have been warned.
