Bubblewrap Store Opening

In the early 1950s egg waffles first appeared in Hong Kong to avoid wasting broken eggs that could not be sold to customers; industrious stall-owners created an egg-shaped iron machine and blended the broken eggs with milk and flour to make this meaningful and tasty waffle. It has since become a popular street snack in Hong Kong and now London with the opening of Bubblewrap on Chinatown’s Wardour Street.

This March will see the opening of what started as an Imperial College Business School MSC Innovation project. Despite three rejected site offers, three sites falling through, nearly two years of trading on weekend markets across London and catering for three festivals Tony Fang is finally seeing Bubblewrap, the egg waffle company, in its first permanent home.

Bubblewrap will open close to Wardour Street's Chinese Gate into Chinatown with a sleek modern interior. Customers can completely customise their Bubblewrap with the choice of three flavours of waffle, six varieties of gelato, fourteen toppings and nine sauces from a menu designed to suit localised tastes (full details below).  The ingredients are of the highest quality, locally sourced where possible and chosen based on freshness, appearance and taste.  Customers are offered guidance with suggestions of flavour combinations such as;  Classic Waffle with Peach, Pistachio and White Chocolate, Cocoa Waffle with Berries, Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate and Hong Kong favourite Matcha Waffle with Mochi and Red Bean.

The public are invited to meet Tony and Sunny to preview Bubblewrap at their Berwick Street Market stall. Every Saturday from 10am-5pm until the opening in March. Mention their new store and you will receive a pre-stamped loyalty card for a complimentary extra topping for use in-store after the launch!
