The Portuguese buns are light and fluffy. The biscuits are perfectly savory. The aiolis are robustly flavorful. I’m not a red meat eater, but I’m told the burger and tri-tip are outstanding.
I make egg sandwiches for myself regularly, but Eggslut puts my measly attempts to shame. The mouthwateringly good combinations are worth every penny of their $ 6 – $ 9 pricetag.
Beginning as a food truck that roamed the streets of LA, Eggslut has had its brick-and-mortar location for just over six months and word has spread like wildfire. When I was there on a recent Saturday morning, the line stretched halfway down the market, at least 25 people deep.
My friend and I had some catching up to do so we grabbed iced cappuccinos from G&B coffee, located at the Hill Street market entrance, and now famous thanks to a NY Times article proclaiming they have the best iced latte in America. Caffeine in hand, we made our way through the market and braved the line.
It took about 25 minutes to make our way to the front, and another 10 for our sandwiches to appear at the bar. Fresh off the grill and oozing with cheesy scrambled egg deliciousness, I scarfed my FAIRFAX quicker than I thought was possible. Topped with caramelized onions and sriracha mayonnaise, my tastebuds were truly in heaven.
Once you’ve had your egg fill, wander through the rest of Grand Central Market, filled with stands selling everything from Hawaiian BBQ to jewelry to slabs of fresh raw meat.
