If you’ve been living in Macau for a while then you’d be familiar with the local egg waffles but Western waffles are just as good. No matter the shape or form you prefer, what’s not to love about waffles? The airy, slightly spongy texture and crispy surface simply topped with melted butter and sweet syrup are just perfect for brunch or afternoon tea. Have it with a scoop of ice cream for extra decadence! Best shared with your friends or perhaps on a first date, here are the best waffle places in Macau for your next catch up session.

Hing Yi Waffle Stall
One of the most popular local snacks and one of the oldest stalls in Macau. Freshly made waffles are produced on the spot–warm and fluffy on the inside, golden and crunchy on the outside. There are three types of waffles on offer here–waffles drizzled with a generous amount of peanut butter sauce, condensed milk, banana waffles, and egg puffs. Easily one of our childhood favorites. Treat yourself to this delicacy for less than MOP $20, which you can get at two places.
Hing Yi Waffle Stall Pátio das Flores Alley, Macau
Travessa dos Anjos, Macau
Located in ParknShop Taipa side and Broadway, they serve freshly made traditional Belgian waffles. We love having it drizzled with Nutella topped with a scoop of ice cream or even having it plain. Every month, they come up with a theme. Last March they had grandmother’s day with chunky apple slices while in February, they celebrated Valentine’s Day topping their waffles with cherries. We’re excited about what they have to offer next month!
