Eggscellent Choice: Here Are 24 Of Mumbai's Best Egg Dishes

Scrambled, poached, fried or baked—eggs have long since carved their way to the top of the Breakfast Club’s bureaucracy thanks to their versatility but here in Mumbai, they’ve found a way to extend their reign of power. Right from morning meals to midnight snacks, no time-centric hunger pangs can’t be satiated with a street side omelette/bhurji pav bursting with fried onions and chillies or hey, if you’re a little bit classier than us, a quick, hollandaise-dripping eggs benedict at the nearest all-day cafe of your choice.
We’re usually lost in a toss-up between spicy egg bhurji-infused maggi noodles and flavourful middle eastern styled shakshuka ourselves, but to each his own. That’s why we put together this rather eggscellent (sorry, we couldn’t resist) list of the city’s best egg preparations, replete with budget-wise categorization and neighbourhood breakdowns. Now go break that yolk just right, we’re counting on you to do it right.

I. Kejriwal Toast at Bombay Canteen

 II. Chicken & Waffle Benedict at Ellipsis

Where: B-1 Amarchand Mansion, 16 Madame Cama Road, Colaba, Mumbai, India.

With Chef Kelvin Cheung at the helm, Ellipsis is a little bit of a food wonderland where food is always so much fun and the newest culinary innovation is just round the corner. This over-the-top dish blends the crispiness of succulent buttermilk brined fried chicken, waffles and the satiating classic Eggs benedict to make for an egg dish that oozes indulgence at its best. A bed of sourdough waffle hosts the fried chicken and eggs, with to-die-for bacon maple syrup, sriracha gastrique and sriracha hollandaise. You'll see exactly why this is our favourite hangover remedy soon as you bite into this divine dish.

Cost: It wouldn't be indulgent if it wasn't expensive @ Rs 1000
