Cheery Japanese-Hawaiian casual diner Eggs 'n Things has three outlets in its native Hawaii (where its Japanese owners first opened the flagship outlet in 1974) and 19 branches in Japan, where the Harajuku branch regularly attracts long queues. As its name implies, the menu here offers six main categories of egg-centric dishes in all incarnations — via pancakes and salads, and as a sunny side up on hamburgers. The head chef here is local, but trained at the shop’s Japanese outlet in Odaiba, Tokyo.
The homely, kid-friendly open-concept 86-seater formerly housed pizza joint Skinny Pizza. It also faces lingerie store La Senza, so certain tables offer an eyeful of, er, bras as you dine. We like that the staff here refer to themselves as “ohana” (which means family in Hawaiian) and are dressed in adorable Aloha shirts and cheerful floral smocks. There are also lots of Japanese expat tai tais gossiping over pancakes while their babies snooze in prams.
