Eggs 'n Things Restaurant


#1

Eggs n Things is a Hawaii chain also spread around Japan. This new one in Xinyi is getting terrible reviews. The menu doesn’t look very appealing. Anyone tried?

The prices look insane. I mean, it may be acceptable if you consider the location, tourists, yadda yadda, but holy cow 400nt for pancakes? 280/350 for french toast? 400 for egg benedicts ???


#3

They have lines right now but it will be shut down within 18 months.

I was excited when I saw it was opening, but after seeing the prices and reviews, it’s a hard pass for me.

It is a must go place in Japan, found in all guidebooks/blogs -very Instagrammable.

I have always looked forward to visiting it. Can’t understand why the reviews are so bad here.


#5

About average for fake Western food posh brunch restaurants.


#6

This is in Taiwan? I went to one in Honolulu when I was visiting there a year ago, and I remember it being ‘okay’, but nothing special. Never thought it’d end up on these shores. Why does Taiwan keep importing mediocre chains, but still no Shake Shack in sight? :pensive:

For 100NT I’ll make some nice egg Benedict. For 150NT I’ll also make sure to keep the amount of urine within tolerance.


#8

Yeah, I’ve never gone to one in Japan but the ones I’ve seen there, like the Harajuku one, have crowds waiting to get in first thing on a Sunday morn, lots of wang mei too.

Lemmings. The food at these trendy import chains are always shittier than the small local holes-in-the-wall run by the mom and pops.


#10

Those are fading away, sadly.

Many of these chains are in name only… suspect that’s the case here.
