The Place

Eggy, a new player in Guangzhou’s burger game, is tucked away in a maze of small alleys in the Tiyu Xi Lu area. The small shop’s yellow facade is inviting, and an egg-inspired cartoon character on their signage beckons to hungry Guangzhouers and curious passersby. 

Behind the floor-to-ceiling windows that line the front of the eatery, patrons sit at small tables and literally stuff their faces with egg-adorned burgers, nodding in obvious contentment between bites. 

The Food

Eggy’s menu is simple: seven egg-focused burgers, four eggy snacks and close to a dozen eggless drinks, all prepared on-site as orders are placed. 

While all the burgers on offer here are undoubtedly appealing, we opt for the ‘beef eggsplosion’ (RMB46), which features a runny egg, Australian beef patty, cheddar cheese, lettuce, pickles, caramelized onions and tomato. The egg yolk quite literally explodes on your first bite, as the name implies. 

The taste is dominated by the Australian beef and a secret, homemade spicy sauce, which together result in bold, delicious flavors that had us licking our fingers in no time at all.

From the snack selections, the ‘bad eggs’ (RMB26) are a real treat. This dish is comprised of two baguette slices, a jar of creamy mashed potatoes and sous vide onsen egg, a Japanese low-temperature-cooked egg. Mix the egg with the potatoes and apply to the bread for a palate-pleasing punch of culinary excellence that costs less than a pint of beer at your average Guangzhou pub. 

Overly sugary, Eggy’s black tea hot chocolate (RMB24) could use some improvement. 

The Vibe

On the rainy afternoon we visit, the small restaurant is abuzz with activity, as patrons chat, take photos and scoff down burgers. Despite the dreary weather, a steady stream of customers come and go as we eat and it’s obvious Eggy is destined to become Guangzhou’s preferred purveyor of egg-focused burgers.
