You Must Be Yolking

Inside each of the six San Diego Broken Yolk Café locations, “walls of honor” reveal the names of customers who’ve shoveled down 12-egg omelets in under an hour. For these ravenous elites, breakfast was on the house-their names forever engraved on shiny metal plaques like so many benefactors of a gastro-bypass hospital wing. Among those who’ve burped victory is Adam Richman, host of the Travel Channel’s hit TV show Man vs. Food, who, in 32 stomach-defying minutes, consumed not only the humongous, cheese-?lled, chili-smothered omelet, but also the requisite heaps of home fries and biscuits. Can’t crack this many eggs in one sitting? Plan to shell out $25.99.
