You must have heard of a boiled egg, fried egg, French toast, plain omelette, cheese omelette and a few other dishes made of egg , but those will be just ‘a few more’. Mr. Rahul Mehra will completely change your concept of eggs and omelettes. He will treat your taste buds with everything delicious that you can expect to be made from eggs.
This guy left a comfortable job and salary pack in a private company just to follow his passion and his passion for food and cooking led him to invent 225 kinds of omelettes. Yes! You read it correct! 225 different kinds of omelettes are served at Rahul Eggs Corner.
This small eating joint in Keshavpuram was establ ished in 1989 by Mr. Mehra all on his own in Ashok Vihar, but was shifted to the present address a few months back. A group of five people work at Rahul Eggs Corner to present the delicacies.
The shop opens around 3 PM in the afternoon and runs till 10 at night. The menu offers 225 different kinds under different heads. For example- there are heads like FRENCH, MONACOS, FRIED, MILK, BOILED, TANDOORI, MASALA OMELETTE and the so many more and under these heads are the various options. Mr. Mehra proudly told us that the most famous items are the ‘Star Monaco’ and the ‘Special Tandoori Jhalandhari’ and served us with the same.
While he prepared our feast, we had a little chat with him. He told us that all the spices used in the preparation are homemade and all the recipes are his own. His love for food was mirrored in the way he cooked.
We were served the Star Monaco first. These were small square pieces of bread wrapped in egg and fried. Topped with mayonnaise and then garnished with a slice of full boiled egg. On top of the thin slice were kept chopped onions, coriander and a little ketchup. They were crunchy, spicy and soft on the inside. I loved the taste of cheese and mayonnaise that came with the fried egg. One plate is quite fulfilling with the large number of pieces.
We were served the Special Tandoori Jhalandhari after the Star Monaco and it shared it resemblance with the rather famous and expensive Domino’s Stuffed Garlic Bread .This dish was totally different experience. These Tandoori omelettes can definitely give tandoori chicken a run for it’s life.
I highly recommend the readers to try both these dishes, but of course you have a large menu to choose from. I am pretty sure all the dishes are unique and sumptuous.
The prices are economical and worth the flavour. A group of two can enjoy a hearty brunch or snack at just 159 bucks, I say total PAISA WASOOL.
