Oozy Croissants and Duck's Egg Custard in Jiangnanxi

Oldie but Goodie is a monthly column where we feature noteworthy restaurants, cafes or bars that have been open at least six months and are worth a try.

Ultra Eggie is a humble snack shack with a noble mission: to take the custard derived from salted duck eggs and inject or slather it onto every food item imaginable. In fact, short of mainlining it intravenously, you can get the nutritious slurry just about any way you like it.

The humble storefront on Jiangnanxi’s busy commercial drag, just opposite Icon Mall, is a shrine to the oozy ova, presided over by a strange robotic chicken god that serves as the shop’s logo. The store boasts a dubious Singaporean origin story and a sister-branch in Shenzhen, along with a devoted following among Haizhu District’s snacking population.

The most popular products are a range of freshly baked croissants. Crispy and dusted lightly in sugar, the palm-sized cornettos are baked fresh before being injecting with a pantheon of gooey, egg-infused fillings ranging from melted cheese, to creamy yoghurt, durian, and spicy yellow curry. There’s even a Thai-style tom yum gong filling, boiled fresh each morning from imported ingredients, which really stands out. At RMB5 a pop, you can afford to try them all.

For more substantial fare, try the Italian-style spaghetti (RMB10-18) topped with fish, chicken, crab or beef and drizzled lovingly with – you guessed it – salted egg yolk custard.

Have the stomach for more? Take things to the next level with Ultra Eggie’s salted egg milkshake. We told you, they take this stuff seriously. 

It certainly won’t be a healthy meal, and by no means a tidy one, but if flavor, novelty and affordability is what you’re after, Ultra Eggie can deliver.
