Tucked away in Telok Kurau, The Brewing Ground serves up the most IG worthy tornado eggs that could sweep conventional eggs benedicts under a rug. Think soft, luscious and barely set curds of egg swirled into a creamy mountain! They serve their tornado eggs in both their Breakfast Burger ($20) and Crab & Signature Scrambled Eggs on Toast ($25). Burppler Veronica Phua sang high praises for the Breakfast Burger, "the signature scrambled eggs was a fat cushion of creamy silkiness (it’s every bit as perfect as I remember!), the pork sausage patty was thick, juicy and tastily-seasoned."

Fans of flaky Portuguese egg tarts will surely be delighted by these tarts, located along Tanjong Katong Road. Madeline's has been baking these tarts to near perfection since 1998! It has a crispy flaky crust that serves as a perfect vessel for soft eggy and custardy goodness that's just the right sweetness. At just $2.80 for 3 small tarts, these treats are light on the wallet but big on flavour! Burppler Vanessa loved that the "puff pastry was flaky and crispy with the right thickness. The flavour had a hint of natural sweetness that elevated the pastry. Love how it's not too sweet."

While we're discussing egg dishes, let's not forget ikura. These little orange orbs are flavour bombs that instantly bring a burst of umami into any dish! Whether paired with sushi, chawanmushi, or set atop a rice bowl, ikura is a crowd favourite. Umi Nami's Salmon Ikura Don ($25) comes covered in bright orange ikura and thick slices of salmon sashimi, served atop a bed of Japanese sushi rice. Burppler M L enjoyed the generous amount of salmon and ikura topping the bowl!

Flying Pig gives you a taste of street food paradise Bangkok, right from their Golden Mile premises. Order up their Thai Crab Omelette Rice ($10), which consists of a pillowy, creamy omelette blanket draped over a bed of fragrant fried rice, topped off with generous amounts of crab meat. Despite the queue, Burppler Justin the Foodahorlick felt it was worth the wait because of the generous portion of crab meat and the silky omelette. Flying Pig also offers an upgraded version, their Special Omelette Rice ($25) comes loaded with basil and garlic pork, on top a generous serving of crab meat.

PIVOT does a lot of things well - think impressive coffee, pastries and cakes - but their Tamago Sando ($7)? It's pretty life-changing, and Burppler Whatisdigesting even said "you can be sure this will put a smile across your face." The sandwich is made with two slices of lightly-toasted Shokupan bread, homemade egg mayo, sous vide egg and sprinkled with black pepper. Oiishi!

Salted egg doesn't usually come to mind when egg dishes are brought up, but it is arguably a quintessential local flavour many know and love. In particular, salted egg chicken or fish, which is a staple at many zi char stalls. Jia Yuen Eating House specialises in this local favourite, Creamy Salted Egg Yolk Rice ($8), which consists of crisply fried nuggets of chicken coated in silky, thick and decadent salted egg buttermilk sauce. Burppler Sarah M, who loves anything salted egg, raved about "the creamy salted egg yolk sauce that enveloped the fried chicken and there was a small kick of spice right at the end that was a nice surprise."

The perfect combination of crispy, starchy and eggy, oyster omelettes are definitely on the must order list when it comes to hawker fare. Lim's Fried Oyster in Berseh Food Centre specialises in Fried Oyster Omelette ($5), served with Korean imported, plump and fresh oysters that contrast the crispy and starchy omelette. Burppler Evan Mua said it "brimmed with eggy umami, complemented by brininess from the plump oysters and slight heat from the chili."
