Oddies Foodies - Eggettes with Gelato?!
I had to come here to check it out for myself after hearing about their desserts that combines eggettes with gelato. I love both dearly so naturally it would be awesome to kill 2 birds with one stone! The dessert menu seems to change often with special promotions like the Cold Whispers for Halloween as an example. What's interesting is that they also have unique flavors for eggettes such as kimochi, ham & cheese and rice pudding! I decided to get the Night Wolf so I can try their gelato and eggettes as well.
The shop itself was pretty tiny with no seats and standing room for about 3 people. It's definitely a takeaway shop.
Night Wolf ($49) - Italian low fat soft gelato twisted with 66% dark chocolate served with butter crumbs, caramelized banana ice cream, passion fruit panna cotta, brownie, chocolate chip eggettes and crunchy flakes. It may sound like a lot at first, but the many layers of flavors and textures all worked together superbly! I especially loved the dark chocolate gelato that was velvety rich while the tartness of the passion fruit panna cotta was able to balanced out the sweetness of the gelato. The chocolate chip eggettes were well-made too with a crispy shell and chewy interior. [4.5/5]
Another look at the many layers of ingredients!
Mont Blanc (HK$55) - Italian low fat gelato served with crunchy meringue, candied chestnut, chestnut vanilla ice cream, butter crumbs, black currant compote, rose champagne espuma and handcrafted Christmas tree. Loved this festive dessert especially the fragrant rose champagne espuma and the crunchy meringue although I wished the chestnut flavor in the ice cream could be stronger. The candied chestnuts were also a bit too heavy for me. [4/5]
A closer look at the meringue!
Verdict - I love the creative desserts here and can't wait to go back to try them all.
