I don’t know about you, but I believe a wholesome breakfast has to contain an egg… or a 100. Which is exactly why my sister and I headed down to Egg Shack for breakfast.
This place managed to incorporate eggs into pretty much all their dishes. I like that they have a decent continental menu. Not really a fan of eggs? How about Kimchi Rice? Tandoori Chicken Biryani? Mac & Cheese? You name it and it’s probably somewhere on their menu.
Staff & Ambience:
As the name suggests, it literally feels like being in a shack. It’s got wooden interiors with very limited seating. You could pretty much hear or be a part of every conversation taking place.
All the waiters were kind and professional. Plus we didn’t have to wait much for our food to arrive (which is always a good thing).
We ordered their Dynamite Quail Eggs as an appetizer. The presentation was lovely! I thought it was a novel idea because we’re so used seeing the shrimp version. Unfortunately, it’s always a hit or miss when it comes to that spicy “dynamite” flavor and it didn’t quite hit the mark for me.
We tried their Bharat Eggs; boiled eggs cooked in tomato gravy, served with a Paratha. To be honest, it wasn’t what we’ve hoped for either. Both the curry and Paratha were average to say the least.
I tried their Soft Egg Burger; scrambled egg with veal bacon and cheddar cheese. The egg was fluffy and the bun was fresh and soft. Pretty good.
Out of everything we’ve tried that day, the best thing we ordered off their menu is probably the Tangier Shakshouka. It came in bubbling hot, smelled and tasted like heaven too.
It was served with a basket of pita bread and lamb sausage (also bomb btw). It definitely turned the whole experience around. Loved it!
Their Charcoal Latte was a work of art. It also happens to be their bestselling cup of coffee. Now we know why.
I think the concept is great. Best to go when not many people are around. As far as the food is concerned, the presentation was great, but taste-wise, I think it could use a little more work.
