If you want to try a dessert you’ve never had before, head here. Nosteagia specialises in Asian desserts such as bubble waffles and bubble tea, which come in every flavour under the sun. The bubble waffle originated in Hong Kong and is a puffy waffle reminiscent of bubble wrap, which comes encased in a cone stuffed with fruit, sauces, sweets and ice cream. Nosteagia is a great spot to try these puddings.
