What to do on your week off (at the end of March)? Eat ice cream and Chinese style waffles is one answer. 😅
Bubblewrap is based on the Hong Kong style egg waffles but with added ice cream, sauce and toppings. For some reason it's gained a lot of popularity. Reason: Not known. Constantly long queues too.
I tried to get there as early as possible but there was already a queue! There was only 10 minutes left till opening time... And I already had to wait. 😮 If you notice before queuing, there's a sign of where the two hour wait starts from. SIGH. Thankfully I didn't have to wait two hours!!
Just before opening, I was given a leaflet with the menu.
At this point I was nearing the front after 15 to 20 minutes.
And finally I got in! I texted Miss Money during my queuing time as it was nearing her lunch break. Tried to get her to come out from work early but I think her boss is quite strict with time. 🙄 Anyway, she asked me to get her one, the matcha tea one, unfortunately they had run out of that flavour. Oh well, sorry Miss Money.
Anyway. I ordered two (Miss Money thought it was only one wrap per person to order, uh no).
After 45 to 50 minutes of waiting, I got my two Bubblewraps. An incredibly long time...
To be honest, it wasn't very exciting, just taking the pictures of the food was more exciting than eating it. 😅 My chocolate flavoured egg waffle tasted normal with a tiny hint of chocolate. Found it a little hard to eat just scooping out the ice cream and picking at the egg waffles. Miss Money and one of her co-workers weren't very excited. Weren't pleased with the pricing too. They said to me, that the bakery opposite sold Japanese taiyaki and green tea ice cream for £2 or £3 something, and had a similar taste to the egg waffle... Oh dear.
So a total cost of £12.98... Not worth the wait methinks.
My geeky rating: 3.5/5
