Hi, LoDown fam! I hope you’re having an eggcellent week so far—yes, I did just make that pun! 😋
I’m about to guide you through another one of my super awesome brunches. This time, we’re headed to SoHo to eat at the Egg Shop on 151 Elizabeth Street. If you’re a fan of eggs, you’re definitely going to be a big fan of this place!
I’ve never seen an all-things-eggs menu like the one they have here. Their Sandwich and Cruiser options are endless. If you don’t see anything that tickles your fancy, you can go for the Custom Egg & Cheese option. They also have delicious (non-egg) Sides that pair really well with all their eggciting entrees. My boyfriend and I decided to “go big or go home” when ordering so in addition to choosing an entree each, we also decided to pick our own sides as well!
Absolutely no regrets with this starter. The Buttermilk Biscuit was fluffy and already full of flavor, but the Honey Butter and Seasonal Jam gave it a huge upgrade, making my taste buds dance with joy.
My boyfriend ordered the Steak and Egg Sandwich, which is made with grass fed tenderloin, sunny up, chimichurri, caramelized onion aioli, fresh pickled jalapeno, farm greens, and fresh hero. Truth be told, I did not get to try this one out because he devoured the whole thing—a really good sign of how tasty it probably was. I mean, you can never go wrong with steak and eggs.
This was probably my second or third time ordering the Scrambler—a mixture of soft scramble, roasted mushroom, tomato confit, scallion, and pecorino. Why do I keep ordering this? Well, I’m actually a hardcore fan of anything with mushroom. I knew I had to revist the Egg Shop when I first ordered the Scrambler back in September. It’s like a deconstructed omelette, but better. Everything blends well together and every time I finish the bowl, I wish there was more to devour. Tip: eat with Egg Shop’s hot sauce!
My next favorite thing after the Scrambler – a side of friend chicken. I didn’t have any expectations, I honestly ordered it because I wanted some meat. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I thought Popeye’s had the best fried chicken in the world, but not anymore. You’re looking at the most delicious piece of $7.00 fried chicken, drizzled with honey, dutifully devoured by Courtney.
Stay tuned for my next food adventure!
