The Bubble Waffle: winning us over one delicious ice-cream packed cone at a time.
Around the world this delicious dessert has a variety of different names: it has been called the Egg Waffle, Egg Puff or Eggette, this popular street food comes all the way from Hong Kong.
Today, the locals in Barcelona know these strangely shaped waffles as Bubble Waffles, thanks to the brilliant guys behind Fortune Bubble Waffle who brought this trend to life.
Fortune Bubble Waffle opened its doors in September of 2018 when they became the first place in the city solely dedicated to the making of the Bubble Waffle. There are other café´s and ice cream shops which offer the Bubble Waffles, but our locals (as well as Hong Kong locals´) swear by the authentic taste of Fortune Bubble Waffle.
With a store located in the heart of the El Born district of Barcelona, a Bubble Waffle is a perfect snack to get on a warm day when you´re strolling through exploring our footprints! Though traditionally Bubble Waffles did not exactly serve as ice cream cones, Fortune Bubble Waffle has innovated the recipe of the old favourite to include new flavours.
Let’s start with a base: There is something for everyone. They have you covered if you´re into vanilla, or ore of a chocolate fiend. They have a gluten-free option, as well as a Bubble Cheese (which pays homage to Brazil´s “Pao de Queijo”- a cheesy bread that once you get a taste of, truly becomes addictive – warning to all cheese lovers).
Next, you can pick from an extensive menu of fillings and toppings. In order to help those who are a bit overwhelmed by the extensive choices, the staff have created a menu at Fortune Bubble Waffle, highlighting the classic nine flavours and always adding in a flavour of the month, either created by customers or the in-store staff.
My Local Pick: The Bubble Cheese! – with a side of Sriracha to dip (absolutely scrumptious, but if you´re wary of the spice then go for an Aoli side dip).
If you´re more into milkshake on a hot day these guys also have you covered! With a huge variety of milkshakes (each matching their respective waffle), there is something for everyone. The next time you find yourself wondering where to grab a quick snack to fuel your exploration of Barcelona´s street: look no further open our app to find Fortune Bubble Waffle.
