Coming Soon: The Good Egg to open a new restaurant in Camden with an all-day dining menu
The Good Egg Camden is first UK restaurant to serve up Knafeh Kaak – a traditional and much loved Middle Eastern delicacy
Popular Middle Eastern-inspired restaurant, The Good Egg, is launching a new all-day dining restaurant in Camden on 2nd October. The Good Egg takes inspiration from Tel Aviv food culture and uses exceptional British produce to create a menu that moves easily from day to night.
The Good Egg have set their sights on Camden High Street for their latest restaurant, bringing a new day and night spot for locals, workers and tourists alike. Like its sister sites, the independent all-day restaurant will serve up dishes inspired by the flavours of the Middle East, with nods to the cuisine of Tel Aviv’s Street food stalls, the fare sold in the classic Jewish delis, grand old cafes, appetising stores and bagel bakeries of New York and Montreal.
The menu will see the introduction of their hero dish; Knafeh kaak – a Middle Eastern speciality consisting of crisp kataifi pastry steeped in thyme and rosemary syrups and copious amounts of gooey cheese (essential for the exceptional cheese-pull) and served in a fresh sesame coated ‘kaak’ or bagel. The street food favourite, which has origins from across the Middle East with countries such as Lebanon and Israel boasting their own versions, cannot currently be found elsewhere in the UK.
Camden’s menu will feature hero dishes from Stoke Newington and Margate; The Good Egg Shakshuka with preserved lemon yoghurt, Challah French Toast Sandwich with orange syrup and honeycomb and the viral Arayes – mushroom stuffed corners of pitta seared to golden perfection. Fresh and fluffy pittas and bagels are also on offer with Salt Beef, smoked cheddar and garlic + dill kraut, Bacon and date jam and Sabih – with fried aubergine, fudgy eggs and zhoug have all proved firm favourites. The Good Egg Camden differs from other sites with the addition of evening only mezze dishes, freshly made Lamb Shawarma, Zaatar Fried Chicken and a range of traditional dips and salads. For the drinks, a small but perfectly formed selection of cocktails includes a Sour Cherry Harissa Bloody Mary and a Pickled Dirty Martini accompany a wine list focussing on natural and biodynamic bottles with a changing by-the-glass offering.
Co-founder Oded Mizrachi says, ‘We are incredibly excited to bring The Good Egg to Camden. Like the other restaurants, Camden will offer a fun, relaxed service and a menu full of bright, bold and colourful sharing-style dishes, inspired by our heritage, our travels and our upbringing.’
The Good Egg Camden opens to the public on 2nd October!
