Must-Try Egg Dishes for Egg Lovers

As a Filipino, I am also guilty of resorting to eggs whenever I don’t like the ulam of the day. I also believe that a boodle fight is never complete without ensalada, and not to mention that tapsi is never as good without the “-log“! Lol. Yet, even though eggs are great on their own, we still want to try something new from time to time. You know, just to level things up, celebrate a special occasion, or for date nights! So for those who want to explore a few more egg dishes, here’s a list of must-trys and where to order them!
