I saw a video about Eggslut on Eater when I lived in Singapore. The proprietor was showing his technique to poach scrambled eggs in butter.
Naturally when I moved to LA, I would want to try their signature sandwich. When I had read that the proprietor was opening locations in New York it cemented my desire to eat one of these legendary egg sandwiches.
Every time I went to Grand Central Market in downtown LA, the line was too long for my appetite.
This time I endured the ten minute wait.
The delicious scrambled egg was served on brioche with orange cheese and chewy bacon.
It was amazing! It was the best egg sandwich I’ve ever eaten.
That and freshly squeezed orange juice and I was happy.
Still interested in the mock meats of Veggie Grill I had high expectations for the smoked tempeh masquerading as bacon.
The tempeh looked and tasted like crunchy bacon. My complaint is that there just wasn’t enough of it.
The vegan mayonnaise tasted like mayonnaise.
Besides the food of the future, the artisanal soda is another draw at least for me to visit the Veggie Grill.
So that seminar for work I signed up for sent me to the netherworld of Northridge. I suppose there were better, more expensive restaurants, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so I returned to the large, yet mediocre and uninspiring food court of the local mall.
They serve a dipping sauce on the side, so I asked for a creamy garlic flavor. I love grilled cheese sandwiches and I love bacon, but fuck! This sandwich was so salty! Not only could I not finish the sandwich, I only ate two or three fries. I honestly think salt was added to the grilled cheese besides the already saltiness of Cheddar cheese and bacon.
If you happen to visit the Northridge Mall, don’t have high expectations for the mall cuisine served therein.
After walking back from Runyon Canyon some time last month I bought a hot dog from one of the food trucks parked on Hollywood Boulevard.
I asked for the spiciest salsa and it was nice and hot. A long time ago when I was in college I discovered that hot dogs were the laziest way to eat protein. For months I ate microwaved hot dogs with generic brand macaroni and cheese. Later I ate the notorious hot dogs sold at the Eighr Ball Saloon in Ann Arbor. Because of that it took decades to again desire hot dogs.
This one was pretty good. As it was grilled, it had nice char and was juicy, too.
PieHole makes excellent pies and this one was no exception.
Salty, sweet and chewy, I can’t imagine anyone not liking this.
