eggslut: A Breakfast Truck Walking Distance from Home

One of the bonuses of moving is discovering new places to eat near home. I’ve heard and been told that people don’t walk in LA but since I’m fresh from New York, I can’t quite stop my two feet from doing their thing. One of the places we walked to recently (thanks for the reco, Joy!) was the eggslut truck.

Eggslut is parked in front (actually on the side) of Palihotel. The restaurant inside, The Hart and the Hunter, doesn’t have an extensive breakfast menu so I guess Palihotel, eggslut and The Hart and The Hunter have reached some sort of agreement: hot breakfast items from eggslut, espresso beverages (Handsome Coffee Roasters coffee) and baked goods from The Hart and The Hunter, seating at Palihotel. Whew!

Eggslut had sold out of The Slut (a coddled egg cooked in a glass jar, garnished with chives and gray salt) so I got the scrambled eggs tossed with chives on toast with a side of homemade sausage. Mr. Mari went with his morning go-to fave: a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. 

The order took some time to prepare (this would never fly in NYC) but since you can sit outside in the 70-degree, zero humidity dappled sun, it didn’t really matter how long it took. Delicious. The scrambled eggs were amazing. Tender folds of pillowy, buttery eggs served atop a lightly toasted piece of airy French bread. The homemade sausage patty was tasty but some parts had a hearty kick, others didn’t, depending on where you took a bite. Mr. Mari’s egg sandwich was just as good as my eggs. The barely melted thick slice of cheddar cheese helps keep the tender egg curds from falling out.

I haven’t been to many food trucks (gasp!) but now that we’re in LA, it’s clearly something that deserves further investigation. Perhaps I'll get lucky and there will be more within walking distance.
