The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:
Different, tasty and very filling! I liked everything I tried.
Mon – Sun 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
Downtown’s Grand Central Market got more popular with the arrival of Eggslut. Touted for it’s egg-centric menu and funny name, its popularity has resulted in long lines throughout the day. Their menu isn’t very large and is split between breakfast and lunch (they start serving lunch at 11:30 a.m.). I would suggest going then because I really like their lunch menu and since you can still order breakfast, why not get the best of both worlds. The restaurant itself is hard to miss since it’s front and center right as you walk in, so don’t waste time and get in line (I promise there will be one).
What we ate:
- Bacon, egg and cheese ($6)
- Fairfax ($7)
- Gaucho ($11)
- Eggslut cheeseburger ($8)
The bacon, egg and cheese was the most simple, which really let the ingredients speak for itself. I did think the bacon was a tad overwhelming, but the taste was good!
The Fairfax was my favorite morning offering. With soft scrambled eggs, chives, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and sriracha mayo, the combination was explosive and very delicious. The best part was the warm brioche bun that holds everything together and adds a buttery taste.
The gaucho was delicious! On their signature brioche bun, they pack wagyu tri-tip steak, chimichurri sauce, pickled red onions, shaved manchego cheese and seasoned arugula on top with an over-medium egg. The combination of flavors was great and I especially enjoyed the chimichurri sauce as it added a fresh flavor. I like that even with beef and cheese, the sandwich didn’t feel heavy. I also loved the addition of arugula (it’s my favorite green) and as always I like the intensity of flavor and “spice” it brings to any dish.
The cheeseburger was a favorite among the family, some opted for added bacon and avocado while others ate it as is, and I have to say they were all good. The cheeseburger comes with wagyu beef, caramelized onions, bread and butter pickles, dijonnaise and an over-medium egg. The egg adds so much flavor to the burger and Eggslut serves it up just right, it was super flavorful!
