What: Eggslut Fitzrovia
In a nutshell: Eggs in buns - v2
Summing it all up: Originally hailing from LA. Eggslut opened their first London restaurant in Notting Hill and it was a huge hit. This sees them expanding to Fitzrovia where they'll be serving up more of their eggy buns to Londoners.
When Eggslut opened in Notting Hill, it was pretty clear that there were going to be more in town - and indeed they're getting ready to open the second Eggslut in Fitzrovia, taking over the space that has recently held both Big Fernand and Kalifornia Kitchen.
Since announcing the restaurant, things have obviously changed somewhat. So it'll be all delivery and takeaway for the moment with strict safety guidelines, and the dining-in part will come when restrictions are relaxed. They're also looking to specifically recruit hospitality staff who have been made redundant as a result of the pandemic.
If you've been to the original in Notting Hill (or in California where they started) then expect the food to be similar in Fitzrovia (you can also see our Test Drive of the Notting Hill Eggslut). The bulk of the menu is all about their eggs, sandwiched between buns, with the signatures being:
- The Gaucho - seared wagyu tri-tip steak, over-medium egg, chimichurri sauce, red onions and dressed rocket
- Sausage, egg and cheese - with their own turkey sausage, over-medium egg, cheddar cheese and honey mustard aioli
- Bacon buttie supreme- - smoked bacon (a choice of beef or pork), over-medium egg, cheddar cheese, chipotle ketchup.
- The Fairfax - free-range scrambled egg, chives, caramelised onions, cheddar cheese, sriracha mayo
They'll also have the "Slut". That's free-range coddled egg on a house-made potato puree, topped with grey salt and chives with slices of baguette for dipping.
We're still not at all sure about that name, but their eggy treats are rather good - particularly the Fairfax.
