Hong Kong- 雞蛋仔/eggette/Hong Kong egg waffle/ gai daan zai pan?

chaseshadows May 9, 2011 10:24 AM

I have friends going back to Hong Kong and I was wondering if anyone knew where to buy such a pan in Hong Kong. A store here in the US is selling them for $50 USD, which, in my opinion, is a lot of money.

My parents are from HK and I was born in the US but I go back regularly. The 雞蛋仔 here cannot even begin to compare to the best I've had in Hong Kong (in North Point). I'd love to be able to make them myself.

    There are lots of restaurant supply stores on Shanghai Street between Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok. I don't remember specifically seeing egg waffle pans (and therefore prices) there but if you are looking for one that'd be a good area to check.

      Thanks so much! My uncle managed to find one awhile ago and he doesn't remember where to find it, just that there's one street where he was able to find it. Shanghai St may be the street!

      I have not been to HK for a long time. But, this is what I keep on my bookmarks for my next trip. My friend tried those in HK East and found shau kei wan one the best.

        My friend was able to find it for around $110 HKD on Shanghai St. It is a small one, around the size of a ping pong paddle, with 14 wells. I think this size will work well for my gas stove at home.
