Eggs for lunch or even dinner? Yes, please.
Isn’t it strange that the food we typically eat for the “most important meal of the day” is often never consumed during lunch and dinner?
Why can’t or shouldn’t we have eggs, bacon, pancakes, or sausages during the day. After all, this is classic comfort food, sometimes associated with fond childhood memories or leisurely meals with friends and family that satisfy the culinary soul.
The good news is that there seems to be a growing demand for hearty, occasionally greasy, but also healthy comfort food during various times of the day.
As a result, the all-day breakfast concept is fast becoming a regular feature on restaurant menus, not just in Singapore but across the world.
So, to satiate your eggs, beans, and sausage cravings at various hours of the day, here are some of the popular places in Singapore serving all-day breakfast.
