Ella, a keen coconut potter, reports to you from Notting Hill with London's hottest Egg dining venues.
1. Egg Break
Eggbreak is an egg-inspired restaurant hatched in Notting Hill. Eggs as you may have already guessed are centre stage. Enjoy poached eggs and avocado and chorizo on toast or Broken eggs with chorizo, tomato, scamorza and spring onion. If this wasn’t enough to tickle your yolk then you can always finish with an egg-centric dessert dish. The baked salted caramel custard served with crème fraiche is favourite.
Where: 30 Uxbridge Street, Kensington, W8 7TA
2. The Good Egg
From flipping eggs at local street markets the good egg has hatched down to a permanent position. The staple dish and not one to miss is The Good Egg Burger: an aged beef and bone marrow patty topped with pickle onion, and a runny egg in a challah roll.
Where: 93 Church Street, Stoke Newington, N16 0AS
3. Bag Egg
Bad Egg is not just for the city slickers, its naughty egg brunch draws in crowds from far and wide. Not only can you have your eggs anyway you like them, for £35 you get bottomless booze to go with them.
Where: City Point 1, Ropemaker Street, EC2Y 9AW
Serving food that “makes us drool” is this restaurants motto, and how they live up to it. Savory or sweet, that is the question diners often have to ask themselves. Or in my case both. Slow-scramble duck eggs with mushroom, truffle oil on toast sourdough to start with, followed with Yolk’s homemade ice-cream French toast.
Where: KERB Markets, Various Locations
5. Chicken and Egg Shop
What came first the Chicken or the Egg? This time the “egg”. With three egg-based signature dishes you can’t go wrong. No matter how ropey you may be feeling the Chicken sandwich with fried egg is a clear winner.
Where: 7A Chestnut Grove, Balham, SW12 8JA
