7 Best Egg-Porn Spots in Dallas

No matter the weather in Dallas, the sun is always shining at these prime egg porn destinations. With Dallas chefs placing eggs and runny yolks atop almost everything, here are my seven favorites. Even better, you don't have to be over 18 to enjoy these rays of sunshine!

Blind Butcher's "Hungover Poutine"

Not only does Blind Butcher have stellar hand cured meats, they also don Dallas' best egg covered fries. Their "Hungover Poutine" consists of French fries topped with cheese curds, sausage gravy, bacon and (you guessed it) a sunny-side up egg. Chef Oliver doesn't disappoint! With the addition of Blind Butcher's new brunch menu Dallasites will find themselves seeing yellow.

Matchbox American Kitchen + Spirit's "Huevos Rancheros"

Whether you're looking for a healthy bite or a more substantial brunch, Matchbox American Kitchen + Spirit is a yolky affair. Their "Huevos Rancheros" dish is composed of guac, pico, black beans + chipotle sour cream. The brunch entrée is zesty, meatless and light. I recommend ordering the dish with corn tortillas to replace the accompanying tortilla chips.

Bread Winners Café & Bakery's “Texas Benedict”

Bread Winner's is a Dallas staple, they serve brunch, lunch and dinner as well as a mecca of sweet treats catered to each season. It doesn't get more Dallas than their “Texas Benedict”. This brunch goer favorite demands a fork & knife; An open-faced english muffin, with beef brisket hash, two sunny-side up eggs and a Tabasco hollandaise topper accompanied with seasoned brunch potatoes! The english muffin is always fresh and cuts like a piece of cotton candy, even more so once the warm egg yolk sifts to the bottom of the dish.

Chuy's "Southwestern"

Green chile, homemade salsa, egg topped enchiladas - oh my! Chuy's "Southwestern" is built with house-made blue corn tortillas stacked with freshly-roasted, hand-pulled chicken, cheese & green chile sauce, all topped with a glorious fried egg. It doesn't get much better than a one stop shop for the fresh year round green chiles & fried eggs. Not only is this dish served all day everyday, it is also large enough for two meals! Double the pleasure - egg porn in the afternoon, egg porn in the evening!

Happiest Hour's "Rise & Shine Sandwich"

What’s a brunch menu if not an opportunity to display your finest yolk? Happiest Hour's "Rise & Shine Sandwich" is the star of their all new brunch menu. Thick bacon, shoestring hash browns + fresh avocado stacked on buttery sourdough topped with hollandaise and two eggs. I can’t think of many things better than a simple yet superior yolk engulfed sandwich. With my knife in hand I was prepared to fight off my brunch date – from the moment this monstrosity landed on the table to the last bite it was brunch ecstasy. 10/10

Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar's "Country Chickens & Biscuit"

Southern California-based Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar opened its first Texas location last Fall which marked the family-run restaurant’s 17th location. Executive Chef Gabriel Caliendo elevates classic all-American dishes, blending nostalgia with nuance, while also introducing diners to new flavors and seasonal ingredients. Lazy Dog is now serving brunch on weekends until 2PM and features delicious, made-from-scratch items such as the "Country Chickens & Biscuit". Crispy fried chicken, chicken sausage made in house, sunny side up eggs & a house-made buttermilk biscuit, all topped with cajun gravy maple syrup make this a LD brunch must-try.

Ida Claire's "Chicken and Waffles"

Ida Claire is a playfully gaudy Southern-style restaurant in the heart of Addison. Heading to Ida's is always an enjoyable occasion - especially for the brunch. Her "Chicken and Waffles" make the perfect bed for two sunny-side up eggs to lay lavishly. Add in the bacon laced Belgian waffle and coffee maple syrup and it's on. Sip the mimosas, take a bite of your friends dish, guzzle the "Chicken and Waffles".
