Let’s face it, guys. Eggs are among the most important ingredient in cooking! Unless you’re vegan or allergic to it, of course.
Not only are eggs filled with high-quality proteins, it also contains vitamins (i.e. vitamins A, B12, B2 and B5), minerals, good fats, and various trace nutrients. Moreover, many studies show that eggs provide HDL (dubbed “the good cholesterol”). Thanks to its bright yellow yolk (which is a source of lecithin), eggs can turn any dull dish into an appetising, colourful masterpiece. We especially love to watch the yolk run down a dish.
If you’re the type of foodie who loves to have eggs for brunch, here are 7 egg-tastic brunch spots around Klang Valley:
1. VCR @ Pudu
Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, VCR takes the form of an unsuspecting black house. While the cafe is best known for their wide selection of freshly brewed coffee and cakes, their plate of Turkish-style eggs is to die for! The egg dish is made of chickpeas, rich tomato sauce, chipolata sausages, perfect soft-boiled eggs, spinach Greek yogurt, topped with toasted pistachios. It also comes with 2 slices of sourdough toasts. Hmm…we’re feeling hungry as we write this ?

7. Enorme @ PJ
Pizzas for brunch (or breakfast) is always a good idea. Headed by Malaysian chef William Teh, who helped create the food menu at Subang’s Flat White cafe, Enorme is an Italian restaurant that specialises in wood-fire pizzas. While there are a variety of topping options, our personal go-to is none other that the Prosciutto di Pancetta. Generously topped with pancetta, mozzarella, diced tomatoes, the pizza has a perfectly cooked sunny side up in the middle.
Note: Pizzas at Enorme come in 3 sizes: Extra small, large, and enorme (which means enormous in Italian).
