Since 1974, Eggs ‘n Things has been synonymous with mouthwatering breakfasts here in the Islands. Currently home to two locations in Waikiki and one at Ala Moana Center on Piikoi Street, the mainstay is known for its blissful array of pancakes, crepes, loco mocos and yes, even eggs!
In addition to satisfying breakfast cravings all day long, location manager (for the Saratoga branch in Waikiki) Edwin Ohta shares that lesser-known dinner gems are quickly gaining popularity.
“Everyone knows us for breakfast, but what they don’t know is that we have a large selection of dinner items that we’re featuring now,” he says. “If you’re not a big breakfast fan, there’s still something for you.” Carbonara, pork chops, fried chicken wings, salads and artichoke dip are among the new, well-rounded entrees and appetizers. Gluten-free starches also are available.
Ohta recommends Island Style Fried Saimin ($12.95), an exclusive Ala Moana branch offering. Chomp away on comforting bites of Spam, vegetables and noodles enlivened with house-made sauce prepared with shoyu and oyster sauce.
The dessert menu also has been expanded, with new favorites such as Fresh Fruit Waffle Folds ($12.95). Fluffy yet crisp Wells waffles are folded and enhanced with creamy cheesecake filling, then served with whipped cream and the customers’ choice of strawberries, pineapple or fresh banana on top.
And when in need of some island-style comfort food, go for the Paniolo Loco Moco ($12.95). Ideal for any time of day, the irresistible entree features a Big Island beef patty and rice smothered in white country gravy and topped with two fresh island eggs, sauteed mushroom, onion and chopped bacon.
