Eggslut: Don’t Let The Name Fool You, Los Angeles, CA
Eggslut is a hip, young food concept situated in Downtown Los Angeles. Eggslut began as a food truck, ran by Alvin Caillin, and in November 2013 it opened up shop in the stylish, foodie heaven that is Grand Central Market. It sits at the front of the market and features a long row of counter seating around the kitchen area.
The menu, as you can tell from the name; is focused around one ingredient- egg. The food here is to be eaten with your hands, so the menu consists of sandwiches – all served in a brioche bun- and two special menu items. The sandwiches include simple options, such as the Sausage Egg and Cheese – a home made turkey sausage, with over medium egg, cheddar cheese and honey mustard aioli- to more exciting bites, such as the Gaucho– seared wagyu tri-tip steak, chimicurri, pickled red onions, shaved manchego cheese and seasoned argula, topped with an over medium egg. If you would rather not have a sandwich, then try the Slut – a coddled egg on top of a smooth potato puree, poached in a glass jar and served with a demi-baguette.
Alternatively, all sandwiches can be made without bread and instead served with salad.
Why should I eat here?
You need to try this place for yourself. Eggslut is definitely doing something right- on the first day they opened for business in Grand Central Market they were sold out by 11am. The queue is regularly over an hour, and people still wait because the food is that delicious. Find out for yourself why Eggslut is so popular.
