Lee Keung Kee (利強記)
Gai Daan Jai

If you visit this tiny kiosk in North Point, there’s a high chance you’ll find it surrounded by a crowd of people. Why? Because they’re all waiting for fresh batches of Gai Daan Jai, one of the most popular street snacks in Hong Kong over the past half century. Literally translating to “little chicken egg,” Gai Daan Jai egg puffs are made in a way similar to waffles, but using a special iron skillet rather than the traditional checked waffle press. This results in a crispy eggshell-like surface while partially hollow and partially soft inside – yet another great example of Western food interpreted by Eastern culture. Pro tip: There are eight branches including one in TST (178 Nathan Road) but the home branch at North Point is by far the best.
