SquareMeal Review of Bad Egg

Opened with Neil Rankin (Temper), then briefly replaced by Little Smoke, Noble Inns’ Bad Egg is back. Ignore the name: there are plenty of eggs here but none of them are bad, especially if you like meat – lots of meat. Hidden within a concrete maze near the Barbican, its spacious, casual dining room attracts young professionals (and bottomless brunch pilgrims at the weekend). The eggs come in various styles, including spicy huevos rancheros and chilaquiles, which are crispy corn tacos stuffed with slow-cooked peppers, goats’ curd and a fried egg. You’ll also find ‘nduja croque monsieurs, burritos and a pulled pork and kimchi hash, as well as a Snicker-bocker Glory on the dessert list, which contains, well, we’re sure you can imagine. Throw in a soundtrack of old-school hip-hop, reggae and ska and Bad Egg’s formula equals fun, guilty pleasures.

the stranger silver reviewer 25 June 2017

I came here with the highest expectations. Brunch has become big business in London over the past few years with some really excellent places all over town. This is not one of them. The food was average at best and the service was friendly but appalling. Really appalling. The way I see it is that if I've paid for a bottomless brunch, I don't see why I have to chase the waiters for a refill. My glass was invariably empty and it took at least 15 minutes each time to get a replacement. Even worse the bloody Maries weren't all that good. Had better elsewhere. I will not be returning.
