From the owners of Fowlmouth comes this new egg-centric concept.
Located in the Commons Saladaeng, Crackhouse stands out almost immediately, with its giant, yellow egg-shaped kiosk lined with empty egg crates and neon lighting. The menu revolves around the humble egg with fun, easy-going breakfast favorites. The Breakfast Burrito (B240) is loaded with scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, creamy avocado, sharp cheddar and crispy tater tots and served with a cilantro-lime crema. Don’t miss the CrackGriddle (B220), a breakfast sandwich featuring an omelet, Sloane’s sausage and oozing cheddar cheese, all pressed between two Chu pancakes and covered in maple butter. If you’re in a rush, order the B.E.C. (B220), which offers up Sloane’s smoked bacon, an egg cooked over easy, California sharp cheddar, smashed tater tots and chipotle ketchup on a toasted brioche bun from Conkey’s Bakery. Pair it all with a piping hot coffee from Roots (B100), or go for the refreshing cold-pressed orange juice (B150).
The buzz: Located in the Commons Saladaeng, this egg-centric restaurant shot onto the scene with Insta-worthy breakfast sandwiches featuring ingredients sourced from Bangkok’s brat pack of artisanal producers, like Conkey’s, Roots and Sloane’s. Even during the month-long lockdown, its sandwiches have still blown up our social feeds.
The food: We see that sad-looking muffin thing you had delivered and raise you the B.E.C. (B240; add B50 for avocado). That would be Sloane’s smoked bacon, an over-easy egg, sharp cheddar and chipotle ketchup on a buttery brioche bun from Conkey’s—a real two-hands-required sandwich. The high-quality ingredients referenced above also elevate the restaurant’s most addictive sandwich, the Crackgriddle (B220). Two pillowy Chu pancakes covered in maple butter contain an omelet, Sloane’s sausage and oozing cheddar cheese. For something (somehow) more filling, order the breakfast burrito (B240). Loaded with scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, creamy avocado, sharp cheddar and what might be a whole potato of tater tots, and served with cilantro-lime crema, this mighty wrap explodes with flavor. Aching to satisfy your sweet tooth? A chilled slice of New York cheesecake (B150) will do the trick.
The drinks: Unless you’re a Coffee Aficionado, boasting the kind of laboratory-appropriate equipment that would make currently cooped-up baristas squeal in delight, you’ll appreciate that your iced coffee is handled by Roots (cold brew, B100). Another welcome surprise comes in the form of the fresh, cold-pressed orange juice (B150). It’s super refreshing and actually tastes like oranges—what a novel concept—thanks to it being just 100-percent navel orange juice. It’s like divine intervention in the summer heat.
The delivery: Fast and efficient, courtesy of Line (order via Line @crackhouse.bkk; delivery is available up to 10km away and carried out via Grab Bike). Your food comes out of the box hot. Even the Crackgriddle’s pancake buns keep their integrity, which is no small feat. Another bonus? You can get contactless delivery.
Why we’d order again: With all the Zoom happy hour sessions we’re doing, we’re keeping this place on speed dial for the morning after. You win, Crackhouse—we’re addicted.
