Bubble waffles are one of the most popular Hong Kong "street snacks" and they have been a beloved street snack over there since their emergence in 1950s. At that time they were made with coal fire heating and sold from street kiosks. They are made of sweet batter that is cooked on a hot griddle, a special frying pan with small round "wells" set on hot coals in the fire, or more commonly, on an electrical heat generator. The egg batter is poured over the special frying pan and heated; the small ovals of eggettes are thus formed. In addition to the conventional "egg taste" they are also available in a variety of flavors such as chocolate, green-tea and ginger, etc.
