Note: Oddies has now moved from Wan Chai to Central, full address below.
This is a dessert shop which bring Cantonese dessert and upgrading them with Western inspiration. It is popular for their egg waffle ice-cream dessert and there are two to try – Night Wolf (HK$52) and The Mob(HK$55).
The dessert is like a sundae and can be shared between two. We ordered The Mob which was black sesame mochi eggettes served with Italian low-fat milk gelato, apple yuzu jelly, matcha ice cream, citrus crunchy flakes and drizzled with matcha sauce.
There were different texture and flavour from the different layers. But it worked as one dessert.
It is a great concept to upgrade the traditional Hong Kong egg waffle to become a modern dessert. It bring back a dying street food to become popular again.
The Wan Chai shop is really small with no seating, so we had to eat on the street which is some thing typical in Hong Kong. Just shortly after my visit it closed their Wan Chai branch and moved to a new shop in Central which does have a limited number of bar seating.
