New Dallas breakfast-brunch spot Eggdaddy is obsessed with one thing
There's a glossy new brunch spot in Dallas, but this time, it's from a local team: Called Eggdaddy, it's a fast-casual restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and brunch, and it's now open near Addison, at 15250 Dallas Pkwy #100, north of Belt Line Road.
Eggdaddy is from Syn Group, the Dallas hospitality company whose concepts currently include Social House, America Gardens, and Sidebar, and previously included the short-lived Don Chingon, and a bar called Wishful Drinking that was in the works but fell through.
Pretty much every item on the menu at Eggdaddy includes eggs, from breakfast dishes to lunch options like egg salad and tacos. Eggs are also used as a thematic/decorative lietmotif, present from the moment you walk through the egg-like oval arched entryway.
The interior features two elongated egg-shaped booths, transparently designed for photo-ops.
"We had them custom-made to go with the egg theme," says Shawn Rao, head of Syn Group.
Staff uniforms are egg-themed as well: egg-yolk-yellow shirts and black chefs' pants dotted with floating sunny-side eggs in amorphous shapes.
The menu is broken into bowls, sandwiches, salads, and breakfast tacos.
The bowls are really just standard breakfast plates but in a bowl format, because everyone must have bowls these days. For example, the American Bowl, which has eggs, hashbrowns, English muffin, with choice of bacon, ham, or sausage. And the Local Bowl, with poached egg, sausage, hash browns, cheddar cheese, Cholula sour cream, and an English muffin.
Sandwiches are clever-kitschy. There's one with peanut butter, jam, and bacon sandwiched between waffles. The "Daisy Duke" is a biscuit sandwich with egg, sausage, pimento cheese, and pickle. There's also a hot chicken sandwich with an Indian twist featuring yogurt-brined fried chicken in a tikka masala rub with an egg on a glossy brioche bun.
Tacos include eggs in combination with various ingredients such as brisket, flat-iron steak, and elotes (charred corn). Salads include an egg salad, Cobb salad, and a "Green Goddess" salad with egg white, mixed greens, avocado, turkey bacon, tomato, toasted nuts, and seeds.
Avocado toast comes with avocado and an egg, of course.
Cocktails include mimosas, espresso martini, and original creations such as a vodka martini with salted egg yolk syrup, and a "milk punch" with tequila, dark rum, falernum, citrus, and milk.
Dallas-Fort Worth has seen a massive wave of breakfast-lunch that have debuted in recent years such as Yolk, Huckleberry's, and Snooze. Brunch is hot, and especially brunch cocktails.
