Even without knowing what it was, when I first saw my friend check in at Eggslut, I knew it was a place for me. Why? ‘Cause I love eggs, puns, and a saucy restaurant name. So when I finally booked my trip to LA, the one and ONLY thing I had to do? Eat at Eggslut. They did not disappoint with their eggstremely delicious, mostly breakfasty foods.
Eggslut is located in Grand Central Market, a large space that holds many small restaurant storefronts, including Eggslut. It is mainly counter service, but there are a few communal marketplace tables you can also eat at. Don’t be deterred by the long line that will most likely be greeting you. Fortunately, it moved a lot quicker than I would have suspected. Thank the egg gods.
OH YEAH. As you can tell, the Eggslut cheeseburger with avocado is pretty packed. A was not extremely impressed, but I thought it was good. I do have to say, it’s on the plainer side so if you like a lot of sauces and add-ons, this may not be for you.
The Fairfax burger still haunts me in my dreams. Rich, eggy, savory, bacony– it’s what breakfast sandwich dreams are made of. And the brioche it comes on? LOVE. I thoroughly enjoyed (eggjoyed?) this and want MORE!
The famous “Slut” is a “a coddled egg on top of a smooth potato purée, poached in a glass jar and served with toasty crostini”. It tasted like a vegetarian breakfast rillette. I really enjoyed the presentation, but I’m not sure I would try it again. It’s kinda similar to grits, but in jar format.
Everyone looooved the Gaucho. Many wanted to venture out the next day again to get more!
If you’re in the area, I’d highly suggest going to Eggslut. While not everything was spectacular, I really enjoyed the Fairfax and Gaucho, and definitely will be back.
