Turkish-style eggs at VCR

Served in a hot plate, the Turkish-style eggs at VCR packs tons of flavour – chickpeas in pomodoro sauce, slices of well-seasoned chipolata sausages, two 63C eggs, crushed pistachios and the distinctive tang of Greek yoghurt. From one of the top brunch spots in the city, this egg dish doesn’t disappoint. The tomato sauce has intense flavours and is appetising, leaving you wanting to dive in for more. How do you eat it? Break the eggs and mix them all together into a creamy, eggy goodness; then wipe the hot plate clean with homemade sourdough bread on the side.

Ouefs mollets florentine at Yeast

The ouefs mollets florentine (eggs with spinach and Mornay sauce) is a decadent dish made for leisurely brunches. While Julia Child may have forgotten how to prepare this classic French dish during her final exam at Le Cordon Bleu, it’s actually a straightforward dish with plenty of flavours. At Yeast, eggs are baked with a Gruyère-based Mornay sauce as well as spinach and mushrooms that have been sautéed in garlic.

Eggs Benedict at Mr. Wolf

With cured Spanish ham and truffle-infused hollandaise, the Jamon Serrano Benedict at Mr Wolf is an alternative take on this classic brunch dish. It checks all the boxes in our list for good eggs Benedict, plus the truffle isn’t overpowering and blends well with the saltiness of the ham. They’re not stingy with the ham either – you get to portion every bite perfectly.

Egg appam at Love Mom Restaurant

While the egg appam at Love Mom Restaurant appeared deceptively simple, we found ourselves thinking about it for many days after. Patiently cooked in a small pan over low heat, the shallow bowl of appam is done just right – gentle flavours of fermented rice batter, perfectly browned crisp, lacy edges, subtly sweet coconut milk, and the pillowy centre of an egg with a runny golden yolk that pulls it all together.

Fried eggs at Restoran Muar

Restoran Muar’s puffy deep-fried eggs (egg whites fried until golden brown and crisp, a runny yolk, plus a splash of their house-made soy sauce) take fried eggs to the next level. Order this with a side of rice and you’re good to go.

Tamagoyaki at Ichiro Sushi Bar

For far too long, the Japanese omelette (the bright yellow, ready-made versions) has been relegated to the cheapest nigiri plate on sushi conveyor belts. However, when done right – a splash of mirin, shoyu, sugar, grated radish and then gently grilled and rolled into several layers using a makiyakinabe (rectangular omelette pan) over low heat for a pale, sunny hue – the tamagoyaki is a dessert dish in its own right, often used to end an omakase meal. To have tamagoyaki on its own, try Ichiro’s version – thick, fluffy omelette squares with a sweet and savoury contrast.

Oyster omelette at Restaurant Kuang Fong

A good oh chien is all about nailing the texture, smokiness, and the egg-to-oyster ratio. Charred in all the right places and yet containing layers of fluffy egg and fresh oysters, Kuang Fong’s wok hei-laden oh chien is worth the wait indeed. A word of warning: only order it during non-peak hours.

Tortilla de patatas at Marta's Kitchen

Unrelated to the Mexican tortilla, the hearty tortilla de patatas (Spanish omelette) is a classic dish that showcases the flavours of onions and eggs. Marta Alonso Garcia of Marta’s Kitchen does her version with russet potatoes and onions caramelised separately in olive oil, and then fried slowly with two beaten kampung eggs, resulting in a creamy, fluffy omelette disc.

Roti canai banjir special at Selangor Mansion

The guys at Selangor Mansion came up with this eggs-tra special roti banjir to beat all other roti banjir. Fluffy roti canai is topped with dhal, sambal, kuah sardin (or opt for chicken curry that’s only available at night) for some saltiness, and the crowning glory – not one, but two twice-boiled perfectly wobbly eggs. Order a glass of teh tarik to go with this food coma-inducing dish.

Chawanmushi at Ishin Japanese Dining

To achieve its silky texture, chawanmushi (which translates to ‘steamed in a tea bowl’) is made with a high proportion of dashi to eggs, and the mixture is strained before steaming. There’s usually the addition of shrimp or mushrooms, but at Ishin, the Three-Colour Chawanmushi comes on a platter and is elevated with toppings of tobiko, uni and caviar each. It’s almost a chawanmushi tasting menu.

Eggs on toast at Kedai Kopi Taman Eng Ann

The OG of all egg dishes: kaya, spice (pepper, actually) and everything nice. Really good soft-boiled eggs (golden yolk cooked to runny perfection and no stringy raw bits) on toast is a rarity nowadays. Don’t forget the kicap.

It’s not what you think; the egg whites actually add an enjoyable richness and froth atop the cocktail. You won’t even taste it – we promise.
