About 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.
