Eggette Lab

Eggette Lab Hong Kong Snacks (蛋仔工坊香港小吃) is located on the Level 7 of Gurney Plaza. The kiosk is right next to Max Gourmet (美食之家) and is across the atrium from Golden Screen Cinemas.
Egg waffle (鸡蛋仔) is the specialty snack here. Hailing from Hong Kong, this popular street food is made using a special waffle iron with spherical molds. The novelty here is that each "bubble" on the waffle can be plucked off piece by piece.
Eggette Lab uses a special mixture of batter made from flour, eggs and sugar. The Original Flavor Egg Waffle (RM4.80) gives the closest match to the actual recipe. The waffle has reasonably soft texture with light crisp between bubbles.
A different type of batter is used for each flavor. This is best illustrated by the Tricolor Egg Waffle (RM7.80). The 3 types of batter (Original, Charcoal Cheese and Chocolate) are not truly mixed together. Instead, they are poured into separate sections of the waffle iron. Among the 3 flavors, Charcoal Cheese is my personal favorite.
Overall, Eggette Lab's snack is alright but I see it more of a novelty. In most cases, such food businesses have to innovate continuously in order to keep the hype going. On a separate note, I feel that the Eggette Lab's staff is somewhat slow in preparing egg waffles. This is despite having many waffle irons at its disposal.
