Woke up to a lazy Sunday morning and plans of driving down towards Mysore Road for breakfast with some friends. However, schedules were not matching, and we eventually decided on The Egg Factory.
Situated off St. Mark’s Road, the entrance is quite nondescript enough, and it is housed in a building called “Whitehouse”. As we neared the main door, we saw a sign saying the place would be closed on 28th Sept and all of us were mentally relieved we’d come on the right day.
The decor is quite “hat ke” types and not your run of the mill interior. There is a lot of wood work and metal that gives it the factory kinda feel and what caught my eye were the pithy comments on the walls like this one. The seating is also comfortable and we settled down to have a dekko at the menu.
We started with the Irish Omlette (potatoes+chives flavoured with lemon juice), and a round of French Toasts; a Classic French Toast with maple syrup for my nephew and French Toast with cream cheese for us.
The toasts were quite chunky but didn’t really seem like the “real” French Toasts that we were used to always eating. In fact they were like any normal buttered toast. My nephew of course LOVED the maple syrup and was licking away merrily even as the toast was almost forgotten, with barely a bite or two in between gobs of maple syrup. 🙂
Next up, we decided to try the Frittatas (thick 3 egg Italian omlettes served with garlic bread), and opted for the Southwestern Frittata, which was made up of sauteed veggies, cheddar and smeared with sour cream. This was an absolute delight and I remembered to take a pic only when we were half way through eating it. To top it all off, we had the caramel custard and it was simply fabulous, and combined with the earlier meal, had us decidedly agreeing that the phrase “eat breakfast like a king” was totally true !!
Last but not the least, a quick visit to the washroom and oh boy… it was a sight to behold.
All factory kinda fittings for the taps and flush, and some “thought provoking” graffiti scrawled all over the place, with an old fashioned radio just outside for good measure. 😀
