With National Egg Week starting this week 9th-15th October and with World Egg Day falling on the 14th, we have rounded-up the ooziest #YolkPorn offerings in and around London.
Lobster Benedict at Thomas’s Café at Burberry
Indulge in a breakfast fit for a fashionista at Thomas Café at Burberry. Priced at £28, the Thomas’s Café at Burberry Lobster Benedict is made using knuckles and claws from Bembridge lobsters. Fished off the Bembridge shelf (just off the Isle of Wight), the lobster meat is grilled in the Bertha. The knuckles are placed on a bed of sautéed spinach along with two poached Barradale eggs. The eggs are topped with hollandaise sauce and a grilled lobster claw is placed on the side. Sat atop an English muffin, it’s a dish worth indulging in.
Dirty Bones’ Ultimate Hangover Brunch
Offering a different take on your yolk porn classics, Dirty Bones’ serve up their Short Rib Hash. The dish includes 14-hour slow cooked short rib finished with caramelised shallots and mustard seeds, served with potatoes and two oozing sunny side-up eggs. What better way to enjoy the weekend than with some NYC-inspired yolk porn, a couple of cocktails and a side of old school hip-hop, funk and soul music?
Sunny side-up – Rosti Greek style at Meraki
New Fitzrovia Greek restaurant, Meraki, offers a Mediterranean take on the ultimate indulgent trio of butter, potato and egg with their Rosti Greek style. A bed of Crunchy potatoes, truffle & Cretan butterlies ready to soak up the oozing yolks of the two sunny side-up eggs resting atop. Yolk-porn doesn’t get much better than this.
