Eggslut Burgers eggy delights

Let’s take a visit and dine-in at Eggslut burgers. They are known for their egg-inspired sandwiches and is possibly one of the best places to have egg-on-bread “eggwich” done right. Their light menu offerings are great as a breakfast or brunch destination.

Let’s take a dine-in at Eggslut Burgers today.

Moreover, Eggslut is a chef driven, gourmet food concept founded in 2011. The chain originated in Los Angeles, California, as a food truck concept in 2011, founded by chef Alvin Cailan. Since then, it quickly gained popularity for its gourmet egg-based dishes, eventually leading to the establishment of brick-and-mortar locations. The name “Eggslut” tad pays homage to the star ingredient- eggs which are featured prominently across the menu. The brand’s expansion to Singapore marks its entry into the Asian market.

Furthermore, Eggslut had received much fan-fair when they first opened with their first branch at Scotts road in Singapore, with their second branch here at the ground floor of Suntec City mall. Their menu selection is simple, with a choice of 6 sandwiches which revolves about eggs as the staple ingredient.

Try their Fairfax burger

The highlight be of course the eggs itself. Signature offerings include the Fairfax ($12), a burger featuring softly scrambled eggs. I recommend the Fairfax for it being Eggsult without the excesses. It is served with cage free soft scrambled eggs, chives and caramelized onions, topped with Cheddar cheese and flavoured with sriracha mayo between toasted brioche buns.

Also, the eggs are served tucked between lightly toasted buns. I found the eggs are oozing soft, and full of flavour. This combination of flavors and textures creates a harmonious bite that is both satisfying and memorable. It is eggs done right with the right blend of eggs to milk ratio.

Cheese burgers for the masses

Furthermore, for the hungry, I recommend their Cheese burger. It is their largest burger on their menu and available in both single ($13.50) and double ($17.50) sizes. Their cheese burger staple ingredient is their ground angus beef, paired with fried caramelized onions and butter pickles. It is further flavoured with cheddar cheese and dijonnaise. I found the medium eggs with the Cheeseburger here is more minimal to that of the Fairfax and is more of a conventional American-style cheeseburger.

Thick juicy patties

Moreover, a more mid-range offering be their Bacon Egg, Cheese burger ($12). It is similar to the Cheeseburger with the thick patties swapped out for heaps applewood smoked bacon. It is much smaller in portions with a correspondingly smaller price tag of $12 too just for the burger. Also, if you enjoy their eggs, I would recommend their Fairfax or their Egg salad sandwich $10.50, with the latter priced in the sub $10 range as one of their more palatable budget offerings.

Wrapping up their menu are rarer and more premium offerings include their Gaucho sandwich ($27). It is essentially a wagyu tri-tip steak served with medium-cooked egg, chimichurri, red onions, and arugula. I found the interplay of the rich, savory steak with the fresh, tangy chimichurri and the runny egg elevates even simple ingredients into a gourmet experience. Though for this price, I would recommend having your steaks at iSteaks instead which offers more value.

Cozy dining environment

Upon entering Eggslut Burgers, one is immediately struck by the vibrant yet cozy atmosphere. The interior boasts a mix of polished concrete floors, modern walls, and warm wooden accents, creating an inviting environment.

Notably, I found the restaurant’s design mirrors its Los Angeles roots, featuring a modern, industrial-chic aesthetic with an open kitchen concept that allows diners to watch their meals being prepared. It tad fosters a deeper appreciation for the craftsmanship involved. The staff’s friendliness and efficiency further enhance the dining experience, ensuring that each visit feels personal and enjoyable.

Also, seating in the café-restaurant is spread out using a mix of café-style tabled seating, fast food style booth and high-table seating. It offers a seating arrangement is a blend of communal tables and smaller, more intimate setups, catering to both large groups and individual diners. However, I found the air-conditioning on the far end of the restaurant can be pretty warm mid-day. Interestingly, there is a hand-washing machine similar to the one we saw at Shake Shack burgers previously.

Extremely eggy

You be given a buzzer while you wait for your order to be prepared after placing your order. Also, I found the sandwiches are more like burgers, despite being served in oil-resistant paper sleeves typical in sandwiches. Still, nothing stopping you from enjoying your meal with their disposable cutlery provided at the collection counters too.

Non burger options

Additionally, if you seek a non-burger option, the Slut, a coddled egg atop smooth potato purée, poached in a glass jar and served with a toasted baguette. It offers a delightful and indulgent choice. Also, in terms of pricing, while Eggslut Burgers positions itself on the higher end of the casual dining spectrum, the quality of the ingredients and the overall experience justify the cost. Interestingly, Egg slut do lunch specials where you can bundle both a drink and hashbrown sides at a discount.

In addition to the main dishes, the sides and beverages deserve a mention. The truffle hash browns are a must-try, perfectly crispy on the outside and tender within, infused with the earthy aroma of truffle oil. The truffle hashbrowns costs $5.50 by itself, and is seasoned with duck fat, truffle and rosemary salt giving it a uncanny hard crisp for hashbrowns. If you desire something lighter, there are chocolate chip cookies and buttermilk biscuit. Choice of salads prices in the $10-12 range, though this is not what you should visit Egg slut for.

The beverage selection includes a range of craft sodas, freshly squeezed juices, like fresh orange juice ($5.50), and a curated list of specialty coffees, each complementing the menu’s offerings. The thing I find odd is the diminutive selection of drinks, all priced around the $5 range per cup. Drinks offerings are tad basic, selections includes brewed tea ($5.50) in either hot or iced selections with choice of earl grey or floral chamomile. Coffee choices includes choice of black, white and specialty coffee from $5-8 per cup.

Wrapping up

All in all, that wraps up our dine-in here at Egg slut. If you are an egg lover, there is no shying from this establishment for their reasonably priced egg-wiches, just stay away from their premium offerings and you be fine. The restaurant’s ambiance, menu, and culinary philosophy reflect a blend of contemporary dining and comfort food, making it a noteworthy spot in Singapore’s vibrant food scene. Whether you’re a fan of eggs, a burger enthusiast, or simply someone who appreciates good food, Eggslut is sure to leave a lasting impression.
