Eggpspecation’s flagship eatery on The Walk at JBR is a firm favourite for a weekend breakfasts, and if you can get a table without at least a 15-minute wait then you’re doing better than the rest of us. So when we heard of a new, even bigger, version in City Walk we were curious to try it.
We decide to try it out for an early-evening meal. The restaurant is fairly quiet, so we suspect the word has yet to spread about just how stunning the views across to the Burj Khalifa and Business Bay from the outside terrace actually are.
Service is swift and friendly and we pour over a menu it’s incredibly difficult to choose from – it all sounds so good. We opt for a creamy lobster mac and cheese, that we wish would never end, and wish we could have ordered two of the brie and walnut crostini starters.
Portion sizes here are incredibly generous so it’s a wonder we have room for dessert. But the chocco-banana pancakes prove too difficult for us to resist (they’re not just for breakfast) and we have to hold back from licking the plate clean.
Granted, there’s not the view of the ocean, or a mere hop and a skip to the sand, but there’s still a lot to like about the newest location of the Canadian chain. We can’t wait to go back for breakfast.
