Great Eggspectations: 12 Of Mumbai’s Best Egg Dishes Vol II

11 Apr , 2016  

Covered in hollandaise, scrambled with spices or baked with spinach and cheese, last week, we explored some of Mumbai’s greatest egg dishes with Vol I. But the list doesn’t end there – here are 12 more ways to satisfy every kind of egg craving – whether you’re looking for something healthy, something indulgent, or something straight up delicious.

Three Cheese Omelette at The Nutcracker
It’s hard to choose just one egg dish from this charming café, but it’s the cheesy omelettes that win for the simple fact that you can have them prepared anyway you like – flat, rolled, or fluffy. If you’re looking for something a little different, you may enjoy the Greek salad omelette, which comes with feta, tomatoes, onion, and olives, the mushroom eggs Kejriwal, the green chutney fried eggs, or their Parsi-style salli eeda.

The Giant Jamjar Popeye at Jamjar Diner
One of Jamjar’s most delicious egg dishes; poached eggs sit pretty on a bed of deliciously seasoned creamed spinach and a jalapeno and cheddar waffle. It’s a rich, decadent twist on the already decadent brunch favourite, eggs Florentine.

Also try: The eggs Florentine at Indigo Deli is a must-try, if you like spinach and eggs.

Jamjar serves what we think, would be an instant hit with Popeye - all the more reason to give it a try!

Chorizo + House Sausages Skillet Fried Eggs at Smoke House Deli (reserve now)
Three eggs, chorizo, and house sausages all come skillet fried with sides of grilled tomatoes and hash browns to form a flavourful, hearty breakfast with just the right amount of spice to kick-start your day.

With a dish that looks this good, we don't think you'd have the heart to pass it up

Baida Roti at Bohri Mohalla
Square-shaped pockets made of crispy roti lined with fried egg served as is or stuffed with chutney, onions, or even minced meat make up this addictive snack. Best had hot off the tawa, a number of small restaurants at Bohri Mohalla make some of the best baida roti in town. Try Jilani Fast Food Corner or India Hotel.

Fried, yes; delicious, most certainly!

Irani Wrestler’s Omelette at Koolar & Co.
This formidable six-egg masala omelette, apparently the breakfast of wrestling champions, is enough for two to share. While it’s delicious on its own, have it with pav, or better yet, enough bun-maska and chai to wash it all down.

Don't let the humble interiors at Koolar Co keep you from trying this beauty

Parmesan waffles at Le 15 Café
Crisp yet soft, the waffles at Le 15 Café are great on their own, but these parmesan waffles are a real hit. Topped with tomato and basil sauce and parmesan, the crowning glory is the perfectly poached egg that brings all the elements together.

Just a few months old, these waffles are already the talk of the town

Bheeda Per Eeda at SodaBottleOpenerWala
Long, long ago, some Parsi granny, in a bid to make bhindi more appealing to her strictly carnivorous family, must have topped her sabji with an egg, giving rise to this Parsi household staple. Bheeda per eeda is nothing but Parsi-style bhindi sabji topped with a whole egg, and at SodaBottleOpenerWala, this dish is best enjoyed with a side of pav to mop it all up.

All the 'per eeda' servings at SodaBottleOpenerWala are stellar examples of Parsi comfort food at its best

Oeufs En Cocotte at Suzette
Only available at the Bandra outlet, Suzette’s ouefs en cocotte (baked eggs) come in little ramekins with your filling of choice, including ratatouille or ham and mozzarella. However, if you’re not into runny eggs (in which case – you’re really missing out), you may want to skip these, because that’s how they’re prepared, and that’s how they’re best eaten.

Also try: Crepe Complete with cheese and ham – available at both Nariman Point and Bandra outlets.

Assorted Greens Omelette at Salt Water Café (reserve now)
All the omelettes at Salt Water Cafe are great, but the assorted green gets our vote for combining healthy ingredients to make a dish that’s seriously good. Loaded with basil, dill, coriander, arugula, spinach, and kale, the omelette (like all the eggs here) is served with toast, preserves, roasted tomato, and potato rosti.

Truffled Scrambled Egg on Toast at The Table
The Table’s seriously indulgent, velvety scrambled eggs are made even better with the heady flavour of truffles and the fact that they’re sprinkled with chives and served on toasted sourdough.

Chutney Eeda Pattice at Bawi Bride Kitchen
Perzen Patel AKA the Bawi Bride’s Mumbai-based catering service (check it out here), dishes up popular Parsi favourites along with lesser known, family or heirloom recipes. Among the latter are her “eggs pattices”, which are seasoned mashed potato patties stuffed with a Parsi-style green chutney and chopped boiled eggs.

Also try: Bafela eeda (boiled egg) bhajiyas and Shirinbai’s cheese eeda cutlets.

Egg Decker at Fable
One of the standout dishes at kitschy Fable is the Egg Decker – scrambled egg served on a bed of creamed spinach, topped generously with cheddar, and served with potato rosti.
