Milk Trade - Steamed Milk and Waffles!

Written By clapalisoc on Tuesday 18 October 2016 | 16:17

The first time I saw Milk Trade in Hole in The Wall, I knew needed to try it. I've been attracted to and have been liking eggettes that have been sprouting like mushrooms in our market lately. Being one of the popular street food in HK, these HK Style Waffles are pretty good canvass for sweet or savory sides and toppings.

From the same brains behind Le Petit SoufflĂ©, the concept was very simple - steamed milk and HK Style Waffles or Eggettes, that's it!

We've tried a couple of combinations during our numerous visits since my children love munching on these.

Chocolate Steamed Milk

The eggette was served warm - crispy outside, pillowy soft inside. The chilled chocolate steamed milk was smooth and was like a custard but a little more firmer but was very soft. It wasn't super chocolatey but had the right sweetness. Nothing so special but my kids loved this. They loved dipping and even soaking each eggette bubble into the steamed milk.

We also got to try the Matcha Waffle. Paired this with a Chilled Yolk Steamed Milk which I liked better than the chocolate flavored one. It was flan like since they added egg yolks into the milk, soft and very smooth! It kinda reminded me of the custard in an egg tart too.

Now onto the Matcha Waffle, if you've tried anything matcha from Le Petit Souffle and/or Scout's Honor, you'll get the same type of Matcha here. The Matcha wasn't the super bitter and grassy type. It was more flowery and mild but nonetheless, still great! Same waffle quality - crisp outside and soft inside. We also tried pairing this with Chilled Chocolate Steamed Milk and they also went perfectly together!

Then there was Black Sesame. One popular ingredient that proved to be oddly delicious! Ice cream, cake, bread, custard and now, waffle! The Eggette had a nice crunch from the outside but it was soft and warm inside. It had black sesame flecks but didn't taste like black sesame at all.

Maybe they should add more black sesame into their waffle batter.

HK Milk Tea from Milk Trade

The HK Milk Tea was just okay. For a small glass of brewed tea with milk and ice - nothing special.

Not so thrilled to try their Plain Steamed Milk but I'll go back for the new item in their menu that has mangoes in it. I'm also hoping that they'll add more waffle flavors as well as steamed milk variants!

4 out of 5 Stars for Milk Trade!
