It’s always a good feeling when you’re driving down the road and happen to come across a restaurant or cafe with a concept so quirky and cool, you won’t be at peace if you don’t visit it. And driving down Oud Metha, we happened to pass by Yello! – The Egg Cafe that grabbed our attention. How could it not? The bright yellow interior and decor of this cafe was so loud, you just can’t miss it. We decided to visit the cafe immediately for breakfast the very next day. We’ve said it before, and we’re saying it again, we LOOOVE our eggs! So you could understand how restless we were when we saw The Egg Cafe.
The cafe is petite, seating about 15 to 20 people max. Its walls were painted with the brightest sunny yellow paint and frames with egg-related pun quotes hanging all over. We took a seat at the booth and we were handed our menus. Since we were starving we had no idea what to order, our eyes being bigger than our stomachs (happens a lot!) we decided to order three dishes, but we recommend one dish per person is more than enough.
We started off by ordering The Yello Breakfast which comprised of two eggs cooked the way you like – fried, scrambled or an omelet… we opted for an omelet. Along with the eggs you also get Baked Beans, Mushrooms, Hash Brown Potatoes, Sausage, Toast (white or brown bread and served with butter and jam), Juice of the day (which was watermelon) and Tea. It was the perfect typical English breakfast to fill up anyone with a huge appetite. The baked beans could have done with a bit more flavor, the hash browns were crispy and soft at the same time, and the rest of the dish was simple yet delicious.
For our second dish we ordered the Local Eggsperience which was a Egg Casserole of fresh Arabian tomato chili gravy, basically a Shakshouka served with your choice of Paratha or Arabic bread. The dish was served piping hot; we had to wait a good 10 minutes before we could devour it. When we took our first bite, the flavor of the tomato gravy really came through and the Paratha was soft and light. The eggs were slightly overdone since we expected it to be runny. Nevertheless, it tasted like a pretty decent Shakshouka.
We wanted to end this “Eggsperience” on a sweet note, so we opted for the Yello French Toast which was a Hong Kong style egg fried French Toast filled with your choice of Peanut Butter, Nutella or Strawberry Compote and served with a juice of the day. Without hesitating, we opted for Nutella. At this point we were terribly full but the French Toast tasted pleasantly different, we just had to take another bite. We would’ve honestly preferred a little extra nutella since we could taste more of the bread than the filling, although we’re really eager to see what it tastes like with peanut butter and strawberry compote.
The Egg Cafe has become our new favorite breakfast destination. Its location is central around Oud Metha, Bur Dubai and Karama, making it easily accessible to almost anyone. Best part? You don’t just have to visit this place during Breakfast; you can sink into their delicious evening snacks as well. To check out their website and menu visit www.yelloeggcafe.com. Trust us, there’s no reason why you should give this place a pass. #HappyFeasting
