New Cairo’s Crumbs Serves Loaded Breakfast Egg Buns

On the morning after Valentine’s Day – a rather eventual schmaltz affair of which my only recollections were gulping down my fifth flute of red wine – a greasy egg-based breakfast proved to be my ultimate hangover-curing meal. Especially if it’s as messy and loaded as Crumbs’ signature egg buns. Had I discovered their secret breakfast section before…well, let me just say, I wouldn’t have been the prima donna I am today, yeah?

Tucked in New Cairo’s Fast Pass Mall, Crumbs is a newfound humble restaurant offering a spicy and quirky rendition of our breakfast staple; eggs. Donning black glasses in a futile attempt to glam up my dishevelled appearance, I took a seat at one of their rustic wooden tables and proceeded to place my order. In a matter of minutes, my table became adorned with an array of flavourful egg-based delights, from scrumptious sunrise fried eggs and bacon to their signature juicy bikini scramble, almost everything came in a soft potato bun.

Akin to London’s famous Eggslut restaurant, Crumbs’ cheesy scrambled patty proved to be a chaotic messy affair of buttery eggs scrambled to fluffy perfection, bathed in molten cheddar cheese sauce, and wrapped ever so tightly in the gentle firmness of a glazed bun. As I took the first bite, yolk and sauce started squirting out of the generously filled bun and dripping down my chin. I ignored the scolding voice in my head that kept telling me I should have kept a handful of tissues nearby, and wolfed down the whole tray.

Honestly, if I weren’t nursing such a monstrous hangover (with no care to retain my decorum whatsoever), I would’ve stuck around to grab a bite of their sizzling smashed burgers and crispy fried chicken bites. As I departed ways with Crumbs to complete my recovery, I made a mental note to pay them another visit to try their non-egg concoctions - puffy waffley patties included.
