Where to Find 25 of Seattle's Best Egg Dishes

View as Map

The delicate egg is no joke. It's a simple food, yes, but a second too long on the stove or in the oven and it's bye-bye textured, fatty goodness.

The call went out last Friday to divulge your favorite egg dishes. A landslide of answers came in, rushing towards the tip line and comments section like a broken yolk. But then again, eggs are that perfect food that elicits passion not just for its happy-making quality, but for respect in proper cooking technique. And because of that, the incredible edible egg gets its own map this week.

Here now, an alphabetical guide to 25 of Seattle's best egg dishes, as determined by readers. As a reminder, this is a user-generated map; if your favorite egg dish isn't on the list, it's probably because you didn't vote. If that's the case, feel free to leave it in the comments.

One brave soul admits: "This is so off-the-wall I'm almost embarrassed to suggest it. Louie's Cuisine of China in Ballard is a highly retro, totally American Chinese place. But their Cantonese eggs (scrambled) with crab is really good. And available as a lunch special for $8.75 so you don't have to make a major commitment to a dinner of sweet and sour pork, subgum chowmein, etc."

First, make reservations if you want to have brunch here. The place is pa-acked on weekends. Second, if you do come for brunch, one reader suggests the eggs in cocotte with duroc ham, kale, béchemel and aged Comté. Or the Eggs Benedict. Or the Croque Madame for brunch or dinner.

Another hot brunch spot in Ballard. Their eggs are pretty respectable, and according to this reader, you'd be missing out if you didn't order "some rarely seen regional options like huevos motulenos from the Yucatan, huevos ahogados with poblano chile strips served with grilled bread from Mexico City or machaca con huevos from Zacatecas."
