Leave it to the experts who’ve served thousands of baked eggs in the past three years – The Red Beanbag might have been the ones who introduced KL’s new generation of brunch devotees to this now-beloved dish. Here, the eggs are cracked into a baking dish of lamb, beef & chicken bratwurst, a triumph of taste & texture with sun-dried tomatoes, aubergine, potatoes & cheese.
Address: A4-1-08, Solaris Dutamas, Jalan Dutamas 1
2. LA/PA at Bangsar
Duck eggs are baked to an ultra-rich creaminess, laced with Aussie spinach & paprika, flavoured with garlic sauce – a nice change from the tomato-tangy baked eggs at most cafes.
Address: 15, Jalan Telawi 3, 59100 Bangsar
3. Ecole P at Damansara Uptown
You may have tried dozens of baked eggs by now, but there have never been baked eggs like Ecole P’s ‘Three Emperors’, an East-West innovation laced with bits of salted egg yolk & century eggs for a flavourful Oriental flourish, plus sausage meat & pumpkin cream, served with lovely fresh bread.
Address: First Floor, 19, Jalan SS21/37, Damansara Utama
4. La Casa at Solaris Dutamas
La Casa serves a chicken-&-egg version, with soft yolks & hot, melted cheese blanketing a layer beneath of Mexican-inspired pulled chicken & baked beans.
Address: Ground Floor, Verve Shops @ Verve Suites, Jalan Kiara 5
5. T.B.F. at Kota Damansara
Comfort-food baked eggs, runnier than the norm, thickened with red pepper coulis, spinach & minced chicken.

6. Copper at Menara Shell
For fans of baked eggs, Copper is a real treat, with two types served here: A meatless rendition that’s earthy with oven-roasted mushroom, onion puree, cheese & dill, as well as a shakshuka-inspired interpretation tangy with chicken chorizo, stewed tomatoes, basil & zucchini, served with kitchen-baked sourdough toast.
Address: Level 5, Menara Shell, Jalan Tun Sambanthan
7. Talent Lounge at PJ Trade Centre
Talent Lounge’s baked eggs, creamy with ratatouille & coupled with rye bread, prove a very pleasant breakfast, exactly the kind of food that helps to boost our spirits.

8. Good Food & Co at Jaya Shopping Centre
The no-meat shakshouka here, borrowing inspiration from a Tunisian-origin recipe, makes for a steaming-hot stew of tomatoes & veggies topped with a baked egg.

9. Metal Box at Empire Damansara
Metal Box’s baked eggs are beautifully creamy, thick with potatoes, eggplant, cannellini beans & smoked chicken breast in lightly tangy tomato coulis, crowned with freshly grated gruyere cheese. Certain to brighten up any morning, but customers can even order this at night – Metal Box serves brunch fare right until closing time.

Beautifully balanced in both flavour & texture, mixed with slices of spiced sausage, cherry tomatoes & beef bacon that’s tastier than the norm, partnered with Frisky Goat’s own-baked crusty toast.
