A friend suggested that there was a Pani Puri (street snack in India) competition happening (it was a closed competition on Facebook but I think was accidently set to Public and supposedly 600 were attending but in truth only 14 selected competitors turned up). Luckily we turned up before the competition started so it was relatively quiet. Eggs & More is a Vegetarian Indian restaurant based in Little India of Auckland (Sandringham Road). There is no mainstream Butter Chicken in sight on their menu which is a great change for once and instead they serve authentic Indian snacks. Their Pani Puri and Hani Puri were crunchy and superb, eaten like tapas and great with friends.
The dish I recommend is their Punjabi special, a set meal of rice, chapatti, dhal, chat, pickles, yogurt lassi and vegetable curry all for $12! A fantastic place that is well located, comfortable and has lots of unique vegetarian dishes to try!
When I first walked in, no one came to welcome which was not a good sign however someone did come through after 5 minutes. This is a little slow nonetheless I was warmly asked to take a seat.
Very reasonable prices for Indian food. In this area, it is very competitive in terms of dining options. Eggs & More reflects its pricing very fairly and in terms of what is expected of the demographic that would dine there.
It is a much different experience than the typical butter chicken fare. You're treating with real Indian street food. The Pani Puri and Dahi Puri are highly recommended due to its light and crispy texture that is absolutely delicious and filled with a potato, garlic and spices! The dishes are like tapas and a meant to be shared. The Punjabi special is an Indian thali that comes with a variety of curries, rice, nan and a yogurt drink - all for $12, see below! It was truly tasty and great value!
