Tortang talong tops my Filipino breakfast list. Smoky bites take me back to a deserted island in Palawan, where our touring banka (boat) docked for the night and the cook charred eggplants over coals the next morning. We woke to a plate piled with these juicy omelettes. While common in Filipino homes, their appeal for me is exotic.

You’ll need flames to char the eggplant, but a stovetop will do; burnt skin infuses smoke into the flesh. The hard stalk (with tongs to grip it) makes life easy; all you have to do is turn. My tip? Sit the omelettes for 15 minutes or so once they're cooked, until they hit room temperature. The wait gives those smoky flavours time to work their magic.
