What if you can enjoy your favourite drink and food at the same time? Well, Waffle Mong has the perfect combination for you!

The smoothes can be enjoyed by itself but the ultimate experience is not complete without enjoying with the waffles. The costs are around 4 dollars.

  1. They certainly look interesting. But so big they are almost scary! I have had the goldfish thing, freshly made, in Toronto (a woman was making them just inside the entrance of a large Korean grocery store). You could buy them with red-bean filling or with custard filling. I have bought the frozen ones in Korea and right here in Montreal.

    • I know 붕어빵 goldfish is one of the popular Korean winter snack and I hear that the person who made 아붕 ah-boong is to enjoy 붕어빵 in summer season too lol smart people!!!
