It has been awhile since I visited what once a go to place for a food adventure, here at Hole In The Wall. This spot that features dishes unavailable elsewhere could have just sparked the abundant food parks we see today. We were craving for dessert and spotted this unusual stall marketing milk.

Milk Trade sells desserts made of mostly two bases, milk and eggs. We got to try their specialties and we just found it normal and nothing too spectacular. First on our laps was a set of Steamed Milk + Eggette. Steamed Milk is actually custard and has egg yolk, egg whites and your choice of flavor (we got chocolate). Eggette, on the other hand, is bubble waffle, crisp on the outside and soft on its inside. We got the bitter sweet Japanese flavor, matcha.

We also tried the one with toppings which I found really expensive at Php 250. The Espresso Peanut variety is plain steamed milk filled with caramelized peanut, mochi, coffee jelly and lots of really sweet coffee syrup. This was overwhelming to have with all the flavors and quite messy to eat. I suggest skipping this and just going for the simpler ones.

Finally tried this place out during a recent visit to Hole in the Wall! 128522

They have eggettes, steamed milk and milk tea. Price range is 100-150 PHP each item. As per the lady at the counter's recommendation, I got their plain steamed milk (yolk) and the chocolate eggette. Meh = my first thoughts upon sampling the food. It was ayt ayt. The eggette had a hint of chocolate and was a little crisp and fluffy. The steamed milk wasn't that flavorful. I probs wouldn't come back haha.

I thought the steamed milk is sweet but it's not. It's just like taho but the eggette is just normal. I didn't taste the green tea all.

Located at the hippest food hub "Hole in the Wall" at Century Mall. The stall design takes you back to old asia with its tiled wall and classic chinaware plating. Pay as you order. The Set Menu with a pair of warm waffle and chilled milk is priced at P150.

HITS:
Milk Tea
Classic or Green Tea Eggette (aka Bubble Waffle)

MISS:
Chilled yolk failed to impress. In pinoy terms, its like a leche flan with thin layers of flavor.

Had a Plain Steamed Milk and Matcha Eggette. We felt both were too sweet and overpriced.

I’ve always wanted to try an eggette or an egg/bubble waffle because of all the review it’s receiving. So when I saw Milk Trade in Hole in the Wall, I just had to get one.

Got their Set Menu (Php 150) which already includes steamed milk and eggette (your choice of flavor). They have four flavors for the eggette (plain, matcha, dark chocolate and black sesame) and three for the steamed milk (egg yolk, egg white, chocolate flavor). My friend and I got the plain eggette + egg white milk and matcha eggette + dark chocolate milk. The eggettes were not so hot so you can easily eat with your hands. The plain one was plain but okay and the matcha flavor was not overwhelming. The milk was interesting! The egg white tasted like normal fresh milk but a notch higher and it was a good complement to both eggette flavors. The dark chocolate milk was also tasted delicious too but I prefer the egg white better.

Tried the MATCHA EGGETTE and CHOCOLATE STEAMED MILK (150php). Hmmm, I can't say I liked and enjoyed them but they were not that bad, either. There's just nothing too special or extraordinary that will make me want to buy them again.

We tried their matcha and dark chocolate eggette. Didn't realise that we had to order the steamed milk separately so in the end we didn't try that. 128517 Anyway, the egg waffles were really yummy. I'm currently in a matcha phase so I really enjoyed their matcha egg waffle and it's definitely something that I'd come back and order again. The dark chocolate one was quite good too, and it wasn't too sweet.

Tried their matcha eggette with chilled steamed milk. The milk/pudding was delicious! It had just-right sweetness. For the eggette, I expected stronger matcha taste but I still liked it. It was crispy on the outside and soft inside. Oks na for 150! 128512128154

Once upon a time, there was a sudden craze for egg waffles. Instagram, Facebook and food apps were bombarded by these delectable bubble waffles in different shapes and sizes. One particular shop that I wanted to visit was Milk Trade. But its location was not attractive at all. I do not want to brave the Makati traffic just for it. Hence when I was able to visit Century City Mall a month back, I made sure that I get to stop by this popular egg waffle place.

Hello, Milk Trade!

R and I rushed to Century City Mall right after a big feast and headed straight to Hole in the Wall. We were so worried that we would be greeted by a closed sign as we got there a couple of minutes before 10 p.m. and a few sites noted that Milk Trade closes that time.

Luckily, it was still open and the friendly staff of Milk Trade entertained us. She also didn’t turn into a grumpy lady while R and I discussed which waffle goes best with which steamed pudding. After 5 minutes or so, we went with the staff’s recommendation—Matcha Egg Waffle with Chocolate Steamed Milk (PHP150).

While waiting, we went crazy with the relatively new Instagram-worthy areas of the pretty food hall and soon, our number buzzed.

The matcha egg waffle had nice crisp edges and the bubbles were soft and fragrant. However, it lacked matcha taste. To be fair, it was not just a green waffle. It did have a faint taste of green tea. It’s just that I was expecting a stronger taste of it.

The Chocolate Steamed Milk was just like your typical chocolate pudding. It was served warm complementing the waffle. It would have been nicer if it had a more chocolate-y taste or more syrup to give it a sharper contrast against the light flavored waffle.

I hate to say this but it was just a so-so experience. I’m not sure if I expected too much from a simple dish or if I’m just not really into egg waffles. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t bad at all. But it was nothing spectacular as well for me to go back for more.

Who doesnt love milk?

Milk trade serves steamed milk for dessert! Their main and one of the few food that they offer is "shuang pi nai" or in language that we understand -- "milk pudding" or milk custard. It may sound minimal, but they are one of the few restaurants to pull off this kind of business. It was said that its because of their experience with the technique on how to do it! 🙂

Milk trade only has three things on their menu. Steamed Milk (white or chocolate), eggetes (matcha, chocolate) and milk tea.

I had their combo, (Chilled Steamed Milk with Matcha Eggetes) costs only Php150.00.

The steamed milk is delicious! not so creamy, not so sweet. It was one of the best thing! Its lightness made me eat more and more. And then, match it with matcha eggetes! The eggetes are crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. It was the real partner for the steamed milk! I got full because of these combo! I am more than willing to try their other flavors!

I wished that they'll open a branch near Ortigas!
Milk, milk, milk. Its good for the bones! Haha 128514

The first time I saw Milk Trade in Hole in The Wall, I knew needed to try it. I've been attracted to and have been liking eggettes that have been sprouting like mushrooms in our market lately. Being one of the popular street food in HK, these HK Style Waffles are pretty good canvass for sweet or savory sides and toppings.

From the same brains behind Le Petit Soufflé, the concept was very simple - steamed milk and HK Style Waffles or Eggettes, that's it! We've tried a couple of combinations during our numerous visits since my children love munching on these.

I got the chance to try the Matcha Waffle recently. Paired this with their Chilled Yolk Steamed Milk which I like better than the chocolate flavored one. It was flan like since they added egg yolks into the milk, soft and very smooth! It kinda reminded me of the custard in an egg tart.

Now onto the Matcha Waffle, if you've tried anything matcha from Le Petit Souffle and/or Scout's Honor, you'll get the same type of Matcha here. The Matcha wasn't the super bitter and grassy type. It was more flowery and mild but nonetheless, still great! Same waffle quality - crisp outside and soft inside. I also tried pairing this with Chilled Chocolate Steamed Milk during another visit and they also went perfectly together!

Not so thrilled to try their Plain Steamed Milk but I'll go back for the new item in their menu that has mangoes in it. I'm also hoping that they'll add more waffle flavors as well as steamed milk variants!

I'm obsessed with anything milk. When I saw Milk Trade in HITW I immediately forgot the pizza that I was eyeing for on the first stall. This is really good, texture like chilled taho that you can find in FamilyMart. I got the chocolate and eggette filled with dard chocolate. I'm gonna come back soon.

Milktrade is a staple when I go to HITW with my kids. They love their waffles and steamed milk! Classic, chocolate and matcha flavors - yep we've tried them together with the chocolate steamed milk.

Right after our Pepita's Kitchen stint, I decided to check what's new in Milktrade. I tried their Black Sesame Eggette and paired this with their Chilled Plain Yolk Steamed Milk.

The Yolk Steamed Milk was delicious! Loved the smooth texture and the custardy - egg tart-y flavor. It wasn't too sweet at all and was kinda bordering to leche flan taste. SARAP! The Eggette had a nice crunch from the outside but it was soft and warm inside. It had black sesame flecks but didn't taste like black sesame at all 128563 Maybe they should add more black sesame into their waffle batter.

I loved how this wasn't that sweet. Not sure how authentic this is but some say it is. I just know that I don't have to look that far if I want some good eggettes or steamed milk! Price wasn't bad too. Pretty affordable for something oh-so-yummy 128523

Then i tasted their goods. The once i thought na nilalangaw eh masarap naman pala.

128204128525matcha eggette
Matcha lovers will surely like this. Unlike other matcha goods, this eggette's flavor is strong. Hindi nakakaumay.

128204128525 chocolate pudding
Ah. Panna cotta chocolate. Chocolate gets darker at the bottom (chocolate residue)

One good stand at HITW. Good for snacks only.

Milk Trade.  One of the new players at HITW.  I've had plans of trying 'em before,  say a couple of days after they opened.  Plans didn't pan out as procrastination got in the way. 

This time around,  what prompted me to swing by HITW is the horrendous traffic along J. P. Rizal.   I decided to wait it out whilst the Shaman performs some voodoo thingy to eliminate traffic. 

Delusions aside,  i got the Matcha Eggette and the Mango infused steamed milk.  Yes,  my decision was solely based on Marjorie G 's review and my undying love for matcha.   This is my first time to try ze HK specialty,  the bubble wrap waffles or Eggettes in layman's terms.  I liked it.  The crispy non-puffed sides is so good,  and the bubble wrap part is weally fun to eat.  For some weird reason,  i kept on hearing a popping sound everytime i take a bite. 

Steamed milk is foreign to me,  at first glance it doesn't look appetizing.  It's like a blob of yellow goo on the bowl.  Texture wise,  it reminds me of bean curd.  As for the taste,  it's creme brulee x custard.  Think of the filling inside a tart.  It's not too sweet,  not cloying and goes well with the bubble wrap. 

Overall,  i liked Milk Trade.  Perfect snack while waiting for the traffic to slowly die and wither away.  Wishful thinking,  i know.  A girl can dream after all.

My first reaction was, "What are those and why do they look weird?" But it's one of those cases when you really shouldn't judge the book by its cover because the moment I took a bite, I was sold. These flavored eggettes are delicious, whether you eat them alone or with the flavored steamed milk. It's like a waffle with bloated holes, it really looks weird, but they're really good. I particularly liked the matcha flavor. For the steamed milk, I loved the mango flavor. It's like a hybrid of a pudding and a creme brulee. It was so good I ate it more than the eggettes 128514.

But really guys, you should try the eggettes at Milk Trade. You will like it too.
