Located next to Wok Hey, I saw Tamago-EN everytime I picked up my food at Wok Hey.
Its white and orange decoration gives the restaurant a clean and cheerful atmosphere which I like.
Tamago-EN is an egg-themed restaurant, they only use eggs from a Singapore-approved egg farm in Okinawa. The chickens are fed a nutritious diet which results in healthy eggs with beautiful yellow yolk.
5-Kind Japanese Omelette Skewer [S$8.80] is a far cry from the delicious freshly-made tamagoyaki I had at Tsukiji Market, but you do get to try 5 different flavors – Tomato Sauce, Seaweed Paste, Salmon Flake & Ikura, Cod Roe & Mayonnaise, Crab Meat.
Tamago-EN also offers all-day breakfast, Japanese-style of course. This is Smoked Salmon Egg Benedict Set [S$13.80] which comes with two fat Arabiki sausages and a small salad. The hollandaise sauce is creamy with just the right amount of tang but the onsen egg is a little overcooked. It should be runny, but the egg yolk I got was almost solid.
There is also Bacon & Spinach Egg Benedict Set [S$13.80] if you are not a fan of smoked salmon.
Tamago-EN Oyako Don [S$12.80] is the restaurant’s signature dish but I am not blown away. The egg omelette is delicious, but the chicken pieces could do with a little marination and the Japanese rice is slightly undercooked.
I am a sucker for soufflé pancake, so when I spotted Berry Soufflé Pancake [S$13.80] on the menu, I knew I had to get it. The soufflé pancakes themselves are to-die-for, they are so soft and fluffy. But the berry syrup is too sweet that it disrupts the softness of the pancakes. There is also Banana Chocolate Soufflé Pancake [S11.80] and Pineapple Tapioca Pearl Soufflé Pancake [S$12.80] to choose from.
Tamago-EN’s Homemade Egg Pudding [S$3.80] is freshly-made in-house everyday. It is so rich and creamy and so absolutely luscious, it makes me want to dance with every mouthful.
