A Taste of Eggslut in Historic Downtown LA

In my post about taking the kids on a walking tour of Downtown LA, I mentioned stopping by Eggslut for breakfast. I promised a full feature, so here it is.

Eggslut is located inside of Grand Central Market. The stall/kitchen is front and center facing Broadway Street. It’s hard to miss not so much because of it’s central location, but because of the long line of customers eagerly awaiting to order. The line literally wrapped around the stall. The line was never ending; there was no break. Even after we returned to Grand Central Market a few hours later for lunch, the line was still wrapped around the stall.

Hubby and I each had a Fairfax sandwich. It was one of the featured sandwiches on Food Porn, and it did not disappoint. The scrambled eggs were so fluffy, they almost melted in my mouth. The Sriracha mayo added just enough heat for my tastebud. The brioche bread was soft, sweet, and warm. Every bite was delectable.

We also ordered The Slut, another customer favorite. It’s a coddled egg on top of a potato purée. I know it doesn’t sound much, but it was delicious. Originally, I bought this for hubby and me to try, but after the kids had a taste, Big B wouldn’t let go of the spoon. If the line wasn’t long, I would have bought another one for each of the kids. Let’s just say that if you decide to order it, make sure that everyone has their own.

I thought that out of all the sandwiches, the Bacon, Egg & Cheese would appeal to the kids the most. They certainly liked it enough. However, not as much as I did. As my cousin said, the ketchup perfects this sandwich. I could not agree more.

I loved how the egg yolk dripped on the bacon after each bite. It’s a little messy, but well worth the napkins. The sweetness and tartness of the ketchup went well with the savory bacon. It was mouth-watering.

I plan on going to back to DTLA soon to visit The Broad. I would love to stop by Egglsut again. Hopefully, the kids cooperate since the line will be super long.

Egglsut is located at Downtown Los Angeles, 317 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013.
