The Good Egg Restuarant

Saturday Brunch at The Good Egg

Everyone knows that I’m always appreciative of other cities but my own. London is where I currently reside and most likely will reside for at least the next few years and so subsequently, I have been making more of a conscious effort to appreciate all that it has to offer. Those that move to London always seem to rave about how amazing it is, so I’m on a quest to view London from the eyes of a foreigner.

So yesterday, I took Nnamdi to a quirky brunch spot in Stoke Newington. The Good Egg.

I was looking for somewhere that was somewhat “local” and found it on the Dojo app. Upon arrival, we noticed that a sign was posted outside for people to wait. A small queue had also formed to be seated. Whilst we were waiting, a man who had arrived before us began speaking to us and he recommended a dish for us to try (and which I later decided to order).

Inside, the restaurant was small enough for it to be cosy but without it being too cramped. Seeing as it was a Saturday afternoon, it was bustling with people and so this meant that the service was a little slow. Our server were extremely friendly, however we weren’t too happy when a couple that arrived after us were asked for their orders before us. Our side order also was forgotten sadly.

The menu had a middle eastern twist to it so the food options were very unique and was not your typical brunch menu. Nnamdi ordered the Montreal smoked Hash (shown above) whilst I ordered the recommended and classic dish, the Shakshuka (show below).

Overall, it was a lovely place to try out (despite the service) and I’m looking forward to trying out some more places!

Have you found any brunch spots in London that you would recommend?
