Bad Egg

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.

    MotleySpicer :: Review: Bad Egg Boozy Brunch | MotleySpicer

    The latest outing of the boozy brunch club took place at Bad Egg. As the name suggests, eggs feature prominently on the menu and luckily the chef is a step above just slapping eggs on everything. The bottomless brunch menu lets you choose three food items plus juices/soda/coffee for £22 and includes an option for unlimited cava, mimosas, or bloody marys which knocks the price up to £32.50.

    Before we get started, let me just make something very clear. Bad Egg is not an ‘egg concept’ restaurant. It may have egg in its name and a section dedicated to eggs, but it’s a diner. And a very good one at that! The latest restaurant from chef Neil Rankin – he of Pitt Cue Co, John Salt and Princess of Shoreditch. I’ve been to all of those and loved them, so I knew Bad Egg would be a good ‘un...

    Gingle lists everything :: Gingle lists everything Bad Egg

    Bad Egg has been on the List for quite some time, and I finally made it down. I have to say, it was a little disappointing for me but I wouldn’t write it off completely. We all chose from the burger/sandwich menu. My veggie friend got the mac and cheese burger, my other friend had the chicken burger, and I got the buffalo ribwich.

    My sandwich was ridiculous. A huge, square slab of pork belly, breadcrumbed and plopped in a burger bun with buffalo sauce and (somewhere) blue cheese mayo. A delicate leaf of lettuce was almost comical in its pointlessness. I couldn’t taste the blue cheese mayo at all, against...
