Food La La: Eggs n’ Things opens on Piikoi
BY LINDSEY MURAOKA / Special to the Star-Advertiser
This week I went to check out the newest location of popular breakfast spot Eggs n’ Things at 451 Piikoi Street, right next to Ala Moana Center. This is Eggs n’ Things’ third restaurant on Oahu; the other two are both in Waikiki.
I’m sure many locals will be happy with this location since it is convenient with ample parking. With such a huge kitchen at this location, they plan to add some new menu items and will eventually open late at night to cater to nightowls.
In celebration of their 38th anniversary, they will serve some menu items today from 2 to 5 p.m. at their original prices from 1974:
» Bacon & Eggs, $2.35
» Sausage & Eggs, $2.35
» Ham & Cheese Omelette, $3.45
» Strawberry Sundae Pancakes, $3.50
Eggs n’ Things has a variety of omelets, pancakes and other breakfast items that they serve both during the day and night. Here are some of the dishes I tried.
The vegetarian omelet contains mushrooms, spinach, zucchini, and cheese. The salsa has a hint of garlic and went great with the omelet.
The ham chops had a deep smoky flavor but were a little too dry for my taste. The other people on my table sure loved it though; all that was left on this plate were the bones.
This fried rice had lots of flavor! It was like a fiesta of bright vegetables and meats. The scrambled eggs were light and airy.
I’ve only been to Eggs n’ Things once before a few years ago at their Saratoga location. I remember trying their pancakes and thinking they were just okay and didn’t understand what the big deal was. I think they either improved their pancakes over the years or I just had a bad batch that time, because these pancakes were great! They were soft and fluffy, exactly the way pancakes should be.
I also attended a social media event for Eggs n’ Things on Wednesday, Oct. 24, with a group of Twitter, Instagram, and Yelp users. There were buffet stations with items from their menu. My favorites were the juicy sausage links, crispy potatoes — and, of course, the fluffy pancakes again!
But first, the No. 1 rule at all social media events — you must tweet before you can eat!
Ham and cheese omelet.
Eggs n’ Things is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 6 a.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays.
