I usually say that I’m too old to bother standing in line, whether it’s for restaurants or for clubbing, but in Vegas, I’ll make an exception, and that exception is for Eggslut at The Cosmopolitan. Eggslut started as a small shop at Grand Central Market in Los Angeles, but their super tasty, Insta-worthy egg dishes, quickly became hugely popular, and today, Eggslut can be found at a number of locations in the US and abroad.
I first visited Eggslut many years ago in Los Angeles, and I fell in love with the Slut, which is one of Eggslut’s most famous dishes. The Slut is a coddled egg on top of a base of potato purée, served in a mason jar, and sprinkled with chives and gray salt. You get three slices of baguette on the side, which you use to scoop up the egg-potato purée mixture, and no, it’s not enough, and yes, you’d wish they would serve the Slut with more bread.
The Slut is a really simple dish, but it tastes fantastic and it is just what I’m craving in the morning after a night out. If you ask me, it’s the perfect hangover food, and judging from the line of people lining up outside the Vegas branch around breakfast/brunch time, I’m not the only one to think so. The line can be really long, especially on weekends, and it can take an hour or more to get to the counter and place your order. Though it’s worth trying, at least once, when you’re in Vegas. There’s almost something ritualistic about standing in the Eggslut line with a bunch of other zombies, who were also up late last night, and who also didn’t care too much about showering or brushing their teeth, before stumbling down to Eggslut for a much needed egg fix.
What should you order? Eggslut is mainly known for the Slut, but the sandwiches are also popular. If you order the Slut, be aware that it’s not a particularly large portion. If you’re hungry, I would recommend to either order two Sluts or maybe add a sandwich on the side.
