10% off Eggland low priced epic new menu in London Fitzrovia10% OFF Quote: ‘Feed the Lion’ (valid 31 May 2022) HALAL STATUS Fully Halal
The first time we visited Eggland last year, not only were they going by their original name Eggoland, but after rating their hugely impressive menu 4.5/5, their ‘Feeling Decadent’ duck burger went on to win #FtLionAwards ‘Best Burger’ of the year.
For those not in the know, the man behind this egg-ceptional restaurant is professional boxer Sohail Ahmad, whose personal journey involving his UK entry in the back of a lorry as a 12-year-old refugee fleeing war-torn Afghanistan is inspiring enough.
His 32-cover venue on Tottenham Street in London’s Fitzrovia was arguably one of 2021’s most publicised openings in the UK’s Halal restaurant sector.
Sadly, the catchy name and theme of Eggoland will soon be reduced simply to Eggland after a threatening legal letter from, believe it or not, Legoland!
While Sohail was confident of knocking them out during a conceivably long and costly legal fight, he’s reluctantly decided to count his chickens and acquiesce to a less expensive (though no less troublesome) brand change.
In any case, Sohail has updated his egg-inspired menu with new breakfast items, a new side, and a new burger – the latter, it should go without saying, we were anxious to try.
Here’s the thing with Eggland: Irrespective of whether an o’s missing in their name or not, you won’t find quality missing in their approach. And this Full English breakfast is the perfect example.
Those glisteningly long, strandy slithers of beef bacon rashers aren’t your ordinary variety; but instead have been specially ordered for this menu item. In this case, the maple syrup didn’t just caramelise the rashers, thereby crisping them up to a tee, but also imparted just enough sweetness to compliment the beef’s smoky edge.
The beef sausages too have been especially prepared. Seriously though, who else do Halal sausages like these as part of their breakfast? Beautifully textured and superbly herbaceous, these were up there with some of the best we’ve had.
As for the rest, then everything else, particularly that large, saturated and spongy fried mushroom, was on point, making this a delicious meal.RECOMMENDED
Can’t think of any other places that do egg and muffin with Halal bacon like Eggland do.
A lightly toasted, nicely buttered and pillowy-soft muffin that housed a sunny side up egg, which practically popped when bitten down upon to envelop those slightly chewy rashers, whose smoky-cum-saltiness was wonderfully tempered by the hint of tanginess from the creamy chipotle mayo.RECOMMENDED
As simple as this may sound, their Egg’n Cheese Muffin was executed to perfection, with again a large, thick, gorgeously toasted muffin containing a creamy mound of seasoned scrambled eggs combined with a mixture of cheese, chives, spring onions, and that chipotle mayo.
Truth be told, this was so good that we were left struggling over which of the two was better. But at £4.00, this particular one is a no brainer really.
May look a mess when unwrapped, but this was a delightful appetiser comprising of just three elements: a thick, crispy, buttery paratha boasting sufficient layers; and a combination of the sweet honey and lightly tart, creamy cheese. Very satisfying indeed.
Although the menu doesn’t make mention of this, we feel compelled to open up our adulation of their newly introduced Smash Burger, not least because it reinforces Eggland’s uncompromising approach in their use of quality ingredients, by pointing to the fact that they use double the quantity of American cheese.
And while we’ve highlighted enough how saturated the UK’s Halal smashed burger sector has become, this one, though simple-sounding, was executed with absolute precision.
With patties expertly seasoned, and copious sloppy cheese to boot, the balance of the sweetness and the subtle tanginess in this brilliantly constructed burger was as good as any smashed burger we’ve ever had.
As the name might suggest, this is their take on an egg-oriented Chicken Burger.
With caramelised onions and gherkins providing hints of the sweet and sour, and the scrambled eggs totally amalgamated with heaps of delicious American cheese and diced spring onions and chives, the poultry was soft and succulent, resulting in the burger being only notches below its superior beefy counterpart above.
In addition to those amazing Hash Brown Bites – all smothered in Parmesan & Truffle Oil – we enjoyed the first time round, Eggland has now introduced uber crispy fries covered in the same heady combination.
Plenty of piquancy courtesy of the grated parmesan cheese, with the zingy depth of the truffle oil permeating each and every bite. Dangerously addictive.

What makes them even more appealing is that they've reduced their prices in response to, frankly speaking, ludicrous claims made by a small minority on TikTok of being expensive?! Now, anyone who knows anything about quality and ingredients should know that that wasn't true of Eggland the first time round, and so it can't be the case now. After all, we're talking about a smash burger on the outskirts of Central London for an unbelievable £7 (their award-winning 'Feeling Decadent' duck burger - a rarity in itself - is just £8!).
And if you're still deluding yourself over their price range, we've teamed up with pro boxer Sohail Ahmad to offer readers a further 10% off the entire menu until the end of May 2022. No excuses. Get down there and quote 'Feed the Lion' to a member of staff to redeem and enjoy an outstanding menu.
