London's Best Shakshuka

A dish of Middle-Eastern and North African descent, shakshuka makes a welcome brunch alternative. Sometimes served with sujuk (spicy sausage), this spiced tomato stew with baked eggs was made to be mopped up with traditional flatbread. So don’t hold back and head to one of our favourite shakshuka-serving restaurants this weekend.

Winner:

The Good Egg

London pop-up stalwarts, The Good Egg are a team of dedicated egg-aficionados. Their shakshuka is the real-deal and is a dish of two Cotswold Legbar eggs baked in a roasted peppers, cinnamon, sweet smoked paprika and cayenne pepper tomato sauce. Topped with your choice of spicy lamb-and-beef merguez sausages or grilled halloumi and finished with a dollop of preserved lemon yoghurt, sumac and Za’atar toasted sourdough.
