Puffle Waffle only threw its grand opening party last week, but as Portland’s only supplier of bubble waffles, it’s already creating a buzz. A popular street food in Hong Kong, bubble waffles start out as an eggy batter that’s cooked in a waffle iron with a bubble pattern for an alien-like effect. Then they’re stuffed with ice cream and all kinds of toppings. See it all unfold in the video above.
Puffle Waffle owner Phyu Hnin Aye also serves a savory version — think bubble waffle BLT — but she tells Eater the sweet option is by far the more popular. She also says she has five waffle irons and she’s already ordering more to keep up with demand. Warning: Long wait times can already be a reality.
Puffle Waffle operates Monday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., inside of the covered seating area at the Happy Valley Station food cart pod.
