Eggslut True Food Porn in Sin City

Eggslut. I’ve been wanting it since the first time I lay eyes on that dirty burger copycat. Imagine, an egg sandwich that has the audacity to replicate the king of fast food. All dressed up in warm, toasted, buttery brioche bread. A hot, naked egg inside, laying on a bed of bacon, topped with melting cheese and bathing in a spicy sauce. This is true food porn in Sin City, and foodie heaven! The L.A.-based street food restaurant Eggslut is located within the Grand Central Market and has (at the time of me writing this) close to 100.000 followers on Instagram. Luckily, it’s not just a hype. Eggslut was the only place we visited twice on our recent tour of casual eats in Los Angeles.

When you arrive, there might not be any vaccant seats at the bar. Queue up first, and by the time you have placed your order, there is likely to be an opening. You see, these guys are fast! The whole place is designed to be an in’n’out kinda venue. Each employee has just one task at hand. There’s the guy taking the orders, the girl cracking eggs, the guy in charge of the bacon, the woman toasting all the bread, and finally a guy shouting out names. Wendy! Marv! Nancy! Anders! Wendy?! All along the assembly line, however, top quality ingredients are in use. Combined with à la minute cooking, Eggslut is simply the best egg sandwich in Los Angeles.

We ordered the Bacon, Egg & Cheese, the Fairfax with scrambled eggs, caramelized onions, and sriracha mayo, and the Slut – an egg, on top of a smooth potato purée, poached in a glass jar. Served with chives, salt, and bread on the side. Add the freshly squeezed orange juice and you have a full meal. Remember, camera eats first.
