What can we do without eggs? Humans have been consuming eggs since the beginning of time for their high nutritional value and rich source of protein.
However, eggs are also a major source of food-borne illness as the Salmonella bacteria can live both on the inside and outside of raw eggs.
Pasteurization is the process of heating food for a specific period of time at a predefined temperature, then rapidly cooling the liquid to enhance food safety and prolong its shelf life. Pasteurization does not alter the farm-fresh flavour and nutrients of the egg.
This Easter weekend, Street 50 Restaurant & Bar at Bay Hotel Singapore has partnered with N&N farm and Uncle William’s quail farm to curate a unique egg-buffet consisting of pasteurized fresh eggs and freshly laid quail eggs.
Given the recent spate of issues on public food safety, N&N agriculture has invested a whopping $11 million to bring in the multi-patented Pasteurization Technology from USA.
Serving only pasteurized fresh eggs that eradicate the Salmonella and Bird Flu Virus, diners can enjoy a nutritious and healthy meal with a greater peace of mind at Street 50 Restaurant & Bar.
You may like to know that pasteurized fresh eggs also contains Omega 3 & 6, Vitamin E and has lower cholesterol level with a shelf life of 60 days instead of usual 30 days, if you keep them in the chiller.
There is a free Easter Egg Terrarium for every 4 paying adults, otherwise diners can get the terrarium at $10 each. There will also be interactive games and Uncle William Ho (affectionately known as “The Quail Man of Lim Chu Kang”) will be around to entertain diners with egg-citing quail stories, fun facts about eggs, and egg-educational talks.
How do you like your eggs to be?
If you are like me, who enjoys eating soft-boiled and runny eggs, then you should check out the Pasteurized Eggs Live Station for omelette in truffle oil, sunny side up, scrambled eggs or the highly recommended 62 Degree Celsius Soft Boiled Egg in BRAND’s Essence of Chicken (photo above) which is simply egg-traordinary!
Other egg dishes you can find at the buffet includes:
Scotch Eggs with Mustard Sauce
Oven-roasted Chicken with Quail Eggs in Spicy Tomato Sauce
Contrary to its appearance and name, the sauce is not spicy at all and is quite an enjoyable dish. Although many people believed that quail eggs are very high in cholesterol, Uncle William told us that this is not true at all, as you need to eat at least 4-5 quail eggs to get the equivalent cholesterol content of 1 chicken egg.
Signature XO Fried Rice with Crab meat
Braised Tofu with Crab meat and Egg White
Sambal Prawn with Quail Eggs
Potato Salad with Pommery Mayonnaise
There are also a variety of other egg inspired culinary delights at the Egg-Xperience Buffet that are not mentioned in this post and are guaranteed to tickle your taste buds and give you a memorable Easter celebration!
