Eggslut is an egg sandwich restaurant at Scotts Square, 6 Scotts Road, #01-12/15, Singapore 228209. It has a ground floor frontage to Scotts Road and a sleek, modern interior. Eggslut originated in Los Angeles and also has restaurants in Las Vegas, Tokyo, Seoul, Kuwait and London.
Eggslut was launched by Alvin Cailan, a Filipino-American chef, in a food truck in Los Angeles. The food truck quickly became very popular and often had long waits of up to two hours. The term “eggslut” basically means a chef who adds an egg to every dish to improve them. The signature dish in Eggslut is called “The Slut”, a poached egg on top of smooth potato puree, served in a glass jar, topped with gray salt and chives, served with slices of baguette which you dip into the egg mix.
There are usually long queues in front of the Eggslut at Scotts Square at peak hours. Umbrellas are provided in case it rains. We chose to go in the middle of the afternoon on a weekday, when we didn’t have to queue.
We ordered the Fairfax ($12): cage-free soft scrambled eggs and chives, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and sriracha mayo in a warm brioche bun. It was delicious. The large portion of eggs were scrambled to perfection and tasted wonderful with the caramelized onions. We also ordered a Fairfax with bacon added on for $3. That, too, was delicious with good quality bacon. The brioche bun is sweetish, indulgent and tasty.
We had a side of truffle hashbrowns (S$4.50) which were crispy and tasted fantastic as they are fried in duck fat.
A cheeseburger is available for meat lovers with ground angus beef, medium egg (of course), caramelized onions, bread and butter pickles, cheddar cheese, and dijonnaise in a warm brioche bun.
The total bill for two Fairfaxes (one with bacon added), one hashbrown, and 2 bottled waters (at $3.50 each) was $38.50. The water was served in stylish containers – shame that they had to be thrown away!
Other drinks available: Orange juice, coke, coffee (but no tea!)
Overall: Delicious and a must for egg lovers
