To Prep 0:45 | To Cook 0:10 | INGREDIENTS 8 | DIFFICULTY EASY | SERVINGS 4

Ingredients

3 tomatoes, diced
1 small red onion, diced
1/3 cup coriander leaves, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon white vinegar
4 free-range eggs
1 loaf Turkish bread, cut into 4 pieces, split, toasted
1 teaspoon sumac (see note)

Method

Step 1
Combine tomatoes, onion, coriander and red wine vinegar in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes to allow flavours to develop, if time permits.

Step 2
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil over high heat. Add white vinegar and a pinch of salt. Reduce heat to low and gently simmer. Crack 1 egg onto a saucer (to check egg yolk is intact). Using a large spoon, stir simmering water to create a whirlpool. Tip egg into centre of whirlpool. Repeat with another egg. Poach eggs for 3 to 4 minutes or until just set. Use a slotted spoon to transfer eggs to a plate. Cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining eggs.

Step 3
Place bread bases on plates. Top with tomato mixture and eggs. Sprinkle with sumac. Cover with bread tops. Serve.

Notes

Sumac is a Middle Eastern spice available from the spice section of your supermarket. You could replace with grated lemon rind.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
