Street Food: Egg Waffles

Street Food: Egg Waffles

Location: Chinaton Center, 222 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON

$3.00 CDN or 2 for $5.00 CDN

Review: These little tidbits of crispy, soft, chewy heaven are a chinese version of the waffle. Literally translated, they are "little chicken eggs". It is the Torontonian answer to the Dutch Waffel-truck. They come hot off the specially designed iron and onto a rack for several seconds of cooling. The maker rolls up the waffle and deposits it into a paper bag for you to carry along the street. The proper way of eating them, is to pull off individual pieces to pop in your mouth. The outside should be crispy, while the inside soft, warm and sweet. A sniff into the bag should send out clouds of vanilla and egg. They should be made with a high amount of egg to give the inside a slight chewiness. These are not near the best I have ever had, but who can say no to a hot waffle on the street?

Rating: 4.5/5
