Eggmania, a restaurant specializing in egg specialties and authentic Indian street food, has announced the opening of its fifth global location, its first in Richmond. This new concept in Henrico, the first of its kind to open in Virginia, is located at 2610 Tuckernuck Drive, next to the Royal Bazaar Farmers Market.

Eggmania is a fast-growing restaurant brand specializing in Indian street foods, most of which are egg-based. Keeping in mind the health and nutritional benefits of eggs, Eggmania is known for its consistent quality and unique dishes. Customers can find different dishes with boiled, grated, fried or folded eggs into omelets to suit all shapes and flavors of Indian cuisine with various sauce options.

Eggmania also serves grilled Bombay sandwiches with a choice of eggs, paneer and chicken, as well as authentic Indian flavored kababs and chicken delicacies. Eggmania also offers many vegetarian options. Popular menu items include Volcano Biryani, Anda Lahori, Angoori Fry, Jetty Roll, Paneer Lava Fry, Cold Coco, Samosa Grill sandwich and many more.

The concept of Eggmania was created by five passionate young friends, all from the state of Gujarat, India, who met during their university studies in the United States. After bonding over their shared craving for egg meals that were readily available on Indian streets but limited to the United States, the friends were inspired enough by the idea and the food to open their own restaurant.

“It’s hard to leave your home and the things you know – the liveliness of the street food culture and the uniqueness of our egg meals in India bring people together, and we all missed it.” , explain Darshan Patel and Kunjan Patel, two of the five partners. “We wanted Eggmania to be the place where people could go not only to get unique great food, but also to find the little bit of community and culture that we left behind.”

While the idea to start a restaurant arose out of informal discussion in 2012, it was the idea of ​​having the foods that they lacked every day and the ability to serve a community facing similar food issues that keep them. encouraged them to bring their concept to life. Within months, the friends opened the first Eggmania in Jersey City, New Jersey, in the heart of a thriving Indian community. Soon after, they added a second location in Iselin, New Jersey, and this year they began franchising in Illinois and Massachusetts. The Eggmania team have identified Richmond as an ideal neighborhood for this unique type of restaurant and look forward to satisfying the cravings of local patrons with an extensive menu of egg dishes.

The new 1,900 square foot location offers indoor seating as well as take out and delivery options.

The Richmond branch is open Sunday through Thursday, 12 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, visit
