Sherman's Food Adventures: Egg Slut

Egg Slut

We woke up fairly early before our drive out to Zion from Vegas.  Was it to arrive at Zion extra early?  Nope.  Maybe it was to beat the traffic?  Nah, it was Sunday...  Are we just early risers?  LOL...  The real reason we got up so early was to hit up Egg Slut for breaky prior to hitting the road!  I've been to this location when I was here with the boys for the first ever Canucks game vs. the Golden Knights.  However, I never took good photos nor blogged about it.  Well, this time I was going to give it the full blog post it deserves.

One benefit of getting there early is the lineup was pretty much non-existent.   We ended up getting the greatest hits including the Fairfax consisting of cage-free soft scrambled eggs and chives, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and sriracha mayo in a warm brioche bun. We added turkey sausage to make it more hearty and this ate soft and warm with silky eggs.   Going basic, we also had the Bacon, Egg & Cheese with hardwood smoked bacon, cage-free over medium egg, cheddar cheese and chipotle ketchup in a warm brioche bun.  As you can clearly see, they didn't skimp on the crispy bacon.  As such, there was plenty of punch in terms of salty smokiness.  Egg was runny and the brioche was soft, yet still firm enough to hold everything together.

Something a bit different, I went for the Cheeseburger with ground Angus beef, cage-free over medium egg, caramelized onions, bread and butter pickles, cheddar cheese, and dijonnaise in a warm brioche bun. Yah, a cheeseburger before 8:00am, I know...  Hey, you can have one at 4:00am, why not 8:00am???  This was essentially a burger with a runny egg.  Patty was fairly moist and meaty tasting.  Good.  Now the most iconic item - Slut.  This was a cage-free coddled egg on top of a smooth potato purée, poached in a glass jar, topped with gray salt and chives, served with slices of baguette.  This creamy and potatoey concoction just works.  Subtle egginess and just a touch of salt, spread onto bread.  What's not to like?  Yah, the stuff at Eggslut ain't complex, but they do it right with quality ingredients executed properly.  I'll wake up early for that.

The Good:
- Damn good breakfast sammie
- Dat brioche bun...
- Dat slut...

The Bad:
- Not cheap, but worth it IMO
- Damn lineup
