According to the menu “Salted Pecan butter with apple jam, angostura butters and orange zest”.
I was walking around downtown a week or so ago and I went to Grand Central Market for lunch.
What is a white person to do when confronted with such a sight?
As for white bread, well I can live without it. The jelly was good, sour and not too sweet. I liked the touch of bitters.
I had a salted caramel bread pudding at another stall which was also good.
Saturday is when I allow myself to have desert and after having a wonderful egg sandwich at Eggslut I tried ice cream at McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream.
I was thinking about cardamom before I decided to eat here.
It was delicious. I recommend it.
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.
Oysters are one of my favorite animals to eat. Raw is best, but fried can be very good, too. I was showing a former student around downtown and I suggested Grand Central Market for lunch.
It was delicious and very greasy! I loved it. I love the salty marine flavor of the oysters contrasting with the crunchy batter. The house fried potatoes were served with a red pepper rouille. I couldn’t finish it.
The seafood stall is now called Prawn. The time I went before it was called Bomb. I’m not sure if the stall was rebranded or was replaced. In any case, the Oyster Po Boy was excellent.
In November I went to the Central Market for the first time and wanted to return.
This time I visited the Mexican seafood taqueria.
The wild-caught shrimp was fried and wrapped in corn tortillas with grated cabbage and some creamy sauce. It was delicious, but I bit into a mouthful that tasted like cardboard. It was a small bite that didn’t really detract from the excellent tacos.
But I would return. The seafood cocktail on the menu sounded good as did the black cod tacos.
