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.

Back to regular |ooloo programming, back to my backlogs 128517 My reviewing can't keep up with my eating!

Visited Hole in the Wall one weekend with the family and I decided to try Milk Trade as a "side snack" for my Liberation Shawarma dinner. Don't expect much from this store coz they literally sell steamed milk and HK Style Waffles or Eggettes. That's it.

Got a Chilled Chocolate Steamed Milk with plain eggette and a glass of their HK Milk Tea.

The eggette was served warm - crispy outside, pillowy soft inside! The chilled chocolate steamed milk was silky and custard like in texture. It wasn't super chocolatey but had the right sweetness. Nothing so special but my kids loved this. They loved dipping and even soaking each eggette bubble into the steamed milk.

The HK Milk Tea was just okay. 100Php for a small glass of brewed tea with milk and ice - nothing special.

Yey for eggettes in Manila!

Wish the bubble waffles were served piping hot like the one you get on Macau and Hong Kong streets but well, one can't be choosy 128540 Had the black sesame - they were crispy and I was satisfied with the flavor, not too sweet!

The steamed milk kinda reminded me of eating tofu. It's not as silky as the authentic ones.

Finally one need not to travel far to enjoy steamed milk. Milk Trade's steamed milk is as good as the one being served at the Australian Dairy Company in HK.

Unlike its foreign counterparts, Milk Trade offers three options for steamed milk (egg yolk, egg white and choco flavored). One can also choose to eat it warm or chilled.

Steamed milk is not one you would want to eat on a regular basis but if you have the craving for it, Milk Trade is the place to be.

I actually just saw Milk Trade from someone's review here on looloo. So I decided to try it. Since its my first time, I asked for the cashier personnel to help me order. They serve Eggettes that comes with different flavors: matcha, sesame and dark chocolate. Then they have 3 options also for the partner of the eggettes: Chocolate Milk, Yolk and Egg white. We decided to order Matcha and Dark Chocolate Eggettes. I got the Dark Chocolate Eggettes with the warm Yolk and it was amazeballs! Dark Chocolate served as a filling inside the eggette plus the Yolk was like a taho minus the sweetness and the sago. With my cousin's order, Matcha Eggette partnered with Chocolate Milk was also the bomb! I cannot taste the authenticity in the Matcha Eggette though but it was not that bad. Chocolate Milk was great also. They served it chilled since the cashier personnel told us that it is best chilled. Not too sweet also. I think this is the best and most affordable that I had yet from Hole in The Wall.

I'm not sure who compared Milk Trade's eggettes with Eggnog biscuits (ikaw ba siz Peanut D??) but... It really did remind of Eggnog 128514128514128514128514

It was just OK. Maybe I should've tried the chocolate one instead? 🤔

Newest baby of Hole in the Wall! 128118🏻

Eggettes or egg waffles which comes with double skinned milk. My friend and I tried the chocolate and the plain with yolk. Chocolate tastes like chocolate pudding while the plain yolk tastes like leche flan minus the sweetness. Aside from the two, there is also plain white skinned milk, which I've yet to try. Skinned milk can be served chilled or warm. The crew told us that chocolate and yolk are best-served chilled, whereas the white is best-served warm.

I must say that I loved this one and will definitely go back. The price is worth-it anyway. 128522
