  • Food & Booze
Poached eggs might be the golden child of breakfast lovers everywhere, but don’t be a chicken when it comes to trying something different. Baked eggs, or shakshuka, are catching on all over town, and we couldn’t be more egg-cited about it. Baked in a spicy tomato sauce and perfect for dipping crunchy toast into, these cracking eggs are egg-sactly what you need after a night on the town. Get ready for the shak attack! Paddington Deli and Epicerie | Paddington Baked eggs are the delicious house speciality at this local breakfast fave, with a rich tomato sauce and crispy sourdough for dipping. The yolk will be on you if you pass up the weekly flavour over in favour of something less adventurous like avo on toast! Canvas | Woollongabba Flavoursome and meaty, the Banderas Breakfast at Canvas is no rotten egg. With baked eggs atop beef brisket chilli con carne, chorizo and homemade baked beans with toasted ciabatta and avocado, you’ll be b-egging for more. Shouk | Paddington Bringing the Mediterranean to the breakfast table, Shouk’s Tunisian style eggs are baked in a spicy sauce with tomato, capsicum, olives and toasted challah. Add some merguez sausages for a protein egg-stravaganza. Shakshuka Shack | Kelvin Grove Markets If you’re too fried to whip up your own breakfast at home before you hit the market, just stop by the Shakshuka Shack, who do nothing but, you guessed it, shakshuka. Their Moroccan spice infused tomato-based sauce with coriander can’t be beat! baked eggs brisbane breakfast gerards Gerard’s Bistro | Fortitude Valley If you haven’t been to Gerard’s Bistro for breakfast yet, you must be scrambled. Taking the shakshuka back to it’s Middle Eastern roots, Gerard’s eggs are baked with merguez sausage and blackened onion and given a dollop of Mediterranean yoghurt. Egg Bistro | East Brisbane These guys know eggs (obviously) and their shakshuka is no exception. Served with chorizo, spinach, chèvre and Turkish toast, it doesn’t even need the eggs-tra deliciousness of haloumi – but we love the cheesy addition all the same! Spring Hill Deli | Spring Hill Spring Hill Deli knows what we want most with our saucy tomatoes – plenty of buttery bread to mop it all up! You’ll be feeling sunny side up after a big serve of their Israeli shashuka, topped with creamy feta and plenty of fresh parsley. My Mistress | Clayfield Saucy and seductive, My Mistress’s Head Mistress is overflowing with free range eggs baked in house made spiced beans with chorizo, sour cream and cheesy toasted bread. You won’t need egging on to finish this plate, but you might need a nap afterwards. Ave Cucina | Coorparoo Hatch a plan to swing by Ave Cucina ASAP, because we’ve saved the best for last. Their Sicilian eggs alla fiamma are slow cooked all night long so that they’re ready for a morning feast with cheesy toast fingers. Make sure you order the extra crispy prosciutto and Grana Padano cheese shavings to top it off. What are you waiting for? Let’s get baked (eggs). Words by Rebecca Grady
