Eggs Glamorized- Egg Fest at All American Diner + 3 new recipes

An Eggilcious Bonanza for All at the India Habitat Centre

Posted on 25/05/2018 By

It all started in April when All American Diner at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, hosted its first edition of Egg Fest for a complete month to celebrate Easter.

What started as monthly Celebrations from April 2018 proved out to be such a gastronomical bonanza for all the egg lovers even for those who are just eggitarians as they had been treated with customized dishes, that it has forced the restaurant to continue with the menu!

Eggs Florentine

I was quite skeptical about my choice of the dish when I decided to food-review the fest, considering my finick when it comes to eggs. I chose Eggs Florentine purely because the description seemed tempting, frankly, I underestimated. First look at the platter and I forgot about the world around me, completing drooling into an Oblivion with every bite. This platter of poached eggs comes with sauteed spinach, hollandaise and garlic bread along with a muffin, for the sweet tooth- a complete meal in itself.

I was happy with the scrumptious sharpness of the eggs, they were done to the T and the blandness that spinach added to my tastebuds. I also tried the Frittata which is a flat omlette with vegetables and it was simply awesome. The test of a good egg-main dish lies in its freshness and my platter scored absolute on that one.

Frittata

In fact I realised, the entire menu is a connoisseur’s delight and carefully curated in a way that dishes can be had for breakfast, brunch / lunch as well as for dinner and includes some interesting delicacies like Grilled Salmon & Ranch Potato, Eggs Benedict, Cassolette Western, Cambridge Skillet and many more.

Chef Pawan Uppal, with an experience of more than two decades, is the brain behind this brilliant curation that amalgamates the American platter meal style with the fine sense of British dining.
