Hong Kong Street Food in Toronto

There are these things sold on the street in HK, which taste like waffles, but they look like an upside down egg carton. I have no idea what they are called. I tried looking at Pacific Mall today with no luck...all they have are fried doughnut sticks. Does anyone know what these are or where to find them?

  1. they do have them in pacific mall. I have seen (smelt them) on the second floor at the entrance to the food court but I haven't been there for a couple years. They also have them in the Market Villiage mall just north of Pacific Mall. You will be able to smell them!

    1. szw is totally correct. the one in market village is located in the food court beside the stage. apparently it's called Tung Tung Dan Quen King.

      the one in pacific mall is beside the 2nd floor food court (the one beside the 2nd floor stage) inside a store that sells snacks. u can tell by all the jars of preserved goods.

      1. readily available and the Cantonese name is "gai dan chai", literal translation "little chicken egg".

        1. Yes, those are "Gai dan chai".

          There is also a Tung Tung on the 2nd floor of Pacific mall, which is located near the center inside the ethnic village. The other one on the left side(which is mentioned in szw and blitz'spost) on the 2nd floor of Pacific mall is more popular, and is better. However, they are not the same as the better one in HK. Both of them do not have a crispy outer layer with a soft egg pulp layer inside.

          1. There's also a stand just inside the entrance of Dragon Mall at Dundas and Spadina. I've been meaning to try to make them with a regular waffle iron and see what happens!
