Bubble-wrap waffles were originated in Hong Kong in 1950s and it has been my favourite street food since my childhood. Bubblewrap reforms this local Hong Kong street snack with various innovative features and concepts. A freshly homemade bubble-wrap waffle is made right after you order, served with your chosen flavour of ice-cream and personalized toppings. Although I love the traditional version of bubble-wrap waffle, it is always a good idea to try something new. The first bite of it was really impressive, the cold ice-cream and the warm waffle gave me an interesting stimulation to my taste buds. Later on, the waffles were less crispy because of the melted ice-cream. Nonethless, Bubblewrap does a great job to combine both customary and contemporary elements and bring a revolutionary style of Hong Kong street munchies to London.

ZUC.CCH.ERO is Italian word for “sugar”. It aims to make use of basic ingredients and science to bring a wholly groundbreaking concept of desserts in Hong Kong. You can notice that all the courses are accompanied by a unique name and unusual appearance that you can barely find the same in other places. The one I tried is called Break The Tear (Gorgonzola ice-cream with celery ice, port wine sauce, walnut & Hazelnut). The blue tear shell is made with blown sugar. It is required to use a spoon to break it in order to taste the things inside and adjust its sweetness. What a spectacular way to enjoy a dessert. The flavour is unconventional and distinctive and I think you should go there have a try.
