Eggslut: LA Egg Sandwich Chain to open in Singapore in 2021
Los Angeles eatery Eggslut, famed for its decadent egg sandwiches, will be making its Singaporean debut early next year. The branch will be the casual-dining brand’s first outpost in Southeast Asia.
The branch’s exact location has yet to be confirmed. Korean F&B company SPC Group, the same group that introduced Shake Shack and Paris Baguette to the island, will also run Eggslut’s Singapore outlet.
Eggslut was co-founded in 2011 by Filipino-American chef Alvin Cailan and his cousin Jeff Vales. It began as a humble LA-based food truck that is now a global egg-loving empire that it is today.
The chain also has branches in ten countries around the world, including America, the UK, Japan and South Korea. In 2014, Bon Appétit magazine named Eggslut one of the US’ “top ten new restaurants”.
Eggslut honours its irreverent name through its relatively simple menu, which centres oozy, no-frills egg sandwiches. The brand transforms the egg sandwich, traditionally considered strictly breakfast food, into an all-day gourmet experience.
One of Eggslut’s cult favourites is its sinful take on the classic Bacon, Egg & Cheese. Crispy applewood smoked bacon, melted cheddar cheese, cage-free over-medium egg (which means runny egg yolk goodness!), and tangy chipotle ketchup are all dished up in a buttery brioche bun.
Another menu highlight is The Slut: a smooth potato purée topped by cage-free coddled egg, seasoned with grey salt and chives, and served in an Instagram-worthy jar. Crispy slices of toasted baguette are also available, perfect for scooping up the springy egg.
Pair your egg sandwich with other menu offerings – freshly-squeezed orange juice or a salted chocolate chip cookie to add something sweet to the “eggy”-ness.
