So originally I was going to do a burgers of USA post but well, Eggslut in Los Angeles totally deserves a post of its own because yo look at dat Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich ($6)!!! It’s been 3 weeks since I consumed it and it still calls to me in my dreams!
Seriously, how can a burger be so beautiful, just oh so attractive? The toasty warm brioche bun holds the crispylicious curls of hardwood smoked bacon, the melty cheddar cheese draped over the medium egg that will spill forth a river of yolk-y goodness and a slightly spicy chipotle ketchup brings everything all together in delicious harmony.
Innards shot because when something is that delicious you just want to share every single angle possible with the world. Seriously though? Best damn breakfast burger I’ve ever had.
I may have blushed when ordering the Slut ($9) but you’ll have absolutely no regrets once you take one bite of the coddled egg which is layered on top of an impossibly smooth potato purée and served with slices of crisp baguette.
Oh. My. Freaking. God. I may have just weeped with joy at this incredible flavour combination and seriously considered ordering a second round after my tastebuds went into a frenzy after that first bite.
I thought about getting the Fairfax Sandwich ($7) which is stuffed with scrambled eggs, chives, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and sriracha mayo but thought I should try a non egg sandwich and ordered the Gaucho Sandwich ($11) instead. While the combination of the juicy seared wagyu tri-tip steak, chimichurri, red onions, arugula (rocket) and an over medium egg tasted perfectly fine, my stomach mourned that it could not fit in another bae roll.
Eggslut started off as a food truck before setting down roots in the Grand Central Market and apparently queues for Eggslut can be pretty insane but since we were still on Sydney time (and never really adjusted during the whole trip lol) we arrived around 3pm with only a 5min wait and easily grabbed a stool at the bar. The area is a bit dodgy but if you visit LA, Eggslut is definitely a must do!
