After my last visit in October 2015, I was sure I’d be back in the Big Apple soon enough. But somehow “soon enough” quickly turned into a year and a half. It may have taken a lot longer than I thought but I finally made it back and had the opportunity to knock so many amazing places off my NYC Bucket List.
The very first place on my list? We’re talking dump-my-bags-at-the-hotel-and-immediately-hustle-down-to first place on my list?
The legendary NoLita spot serving up all things egg porn.Walking in you’ll first be shocked at Egg Shop’s size — it’s an incredibly small space with a quirky urban atmosphere that somehow also rings of a small-town brunch space too.Since I was solo my first day in NYC, I managed to snag a coveted spot right along the front window.
Immediately upon sitting I was given a carafe of infused water and a menu by friendly staff. As you’d expect, much of the menu focuses on the star ingredient: EGGS!First up, I ordered a fresh Watermelon Juice which reminded me of the delicious watermelon aguas I sipped back in Mérida, Mexico. Then my order arrived!I ordered the ‘Everything to Me’ Sandwich. A smoked salmon scramble of eggs on an everything biscuit with heirloom tomato, fresh dill, and horseradish cream on the side.It made for a truly majestic combination.And one seriously welcome sight after a 3 am wake-up call for my 6 am flight to NYC that morning. I’m pretty sure I gulped this lovely little sandwich down in about 4 minutes flat after shooting these pictures…I cannot recommend this little sandwich more and you have to bet that next time I’m in NYC I’ll be back trying another Egg Shop creation.
Perhaps the Avo & Egg or The Reformer?Not planning on visiting NYC anytime soon? Don’t despair!
Egg Shop just recently published their very own cookbook so you can try their egg-mazing dishes at home too:
