Dine Out : Egg Shop

Egg Shop Review, Egg Shop New York

New York City is full of restaurants that specialize in one thing. You can probably guess from the name Egg Shop, that their menu concept revolves around eggs. Egg Shop serves only organic and locally sourced eggs and this casual eatery is open for lunch and dinner as well as breakfast but whenever you go, prepare for a possible wait. For the record, we got there at noon on a Monday and were immediately seated. The space while bright, cute and airy, is not all that big. Blonde wood furniture with mint accents and chalkboards make up the decor and there is an open kitchen as well as seating at the bar/ counter. Their lunch menu consists of sandwiches, bowls called cruisers and a number of custom egg and cheese combinations. Hubster got a sandwich called The Beast which has pulled pork carnitas, a sunny side up egg, fresh cilantro, pickled onion, chipotle bourbon ketchup on french bread. I opted for the Spandex which consists of miso quinoa, farm greens, avocado, and pickled carrot, topped with a a poached egg. Yes it was healthy but it was also really tasty as was the sandwich which had a really nice mix of flavors. Of course the eggs were perfectly prepared in both. We also ordered a side of hashbrowns which were crispy and flavorful. And they make a nice matcha latte. Egg Shop gets a thumbs up for fresh and delicious food and our service was pretty good considering it was crazy busy there. I don't think it's a place that's worth waiting in line for and I probably wouldn't but it is worth a return visit.

Are you a fan of eggs? What's your favorite way to have them? Mine is poached!

I love eggs and I would definitely check this place out when in NYC next. I would have Eggs Benedict if they serve them.

The food sounds and looks great! What's better than a healthy and in the same time delicious food? I like boiled eggs the most, that's why I was happy around Easter, as here we have a tradition to paint boiled eggs. Glad to hear you enjoyed this place, Rowena!xo

Oh lol, I never saw a place specialized in eggs before and is quite fun for me but definitely a place where I wish to go. Being veggie, I have to eat eggs often and it would be perfect for me. The decor looks very nice and cosy indeed, while the food so good. Kisses Rowena! xo

Hahaha...Spandex! I love that name:D I really really love eggs, but alas, I had cholesterol problems before, so I have to watch how many I can eat. I just like to eat it very plain though...scrambled.

PS I don't think I'm over my DOTS obsession! I feel like I wanna get all Laneige stuff now after seeing Song Hye Kyo's posters all over the stores here where they sell the brand. People think I've gone crazy, but I know you'll understand:D

I went to Egg Shop on one of the coldest days of winter & I think it was worth it. The El Camino cruiser was delicious! Maybe I'll give the side dishes a try if I go back next time. The hash browns you got look interesting.

Shireen L. Platt said...

We eat A LOT of eggs! Haha! I love them either scrambled, omelette or just fried till the edge is a touch burnt and a light sprinkle of soy sauce on the top because that's how I had my eyes growing up.

My favourite type of eggs are Eggs Benedict, but I'm always willing to try them new ways. I usually make poached eggs in my noodle soups or on toast sometimes. Egg Shop sounds like an interesting place to dine in NYC. /Madison

I have a friend who always has eggs for breakfast -- he would love this place. I do like a good egg whites plate on an English muffin, myself.

I'm not really an egg person, but this sounds like a nice place to try :)

For the past year, my favourite way to eat eggs has been Eggs Benedict. However, that might be just because it is something new to me. I may returned to my old favourite (soft boiled) soon:). Anyway, I love eating eggs and having them in a sandwich or a salad is always a great option!

This place looks like a lovely place to eat. I always buy organic eggs (from friends that keep chickens for that purpuse). Fortunately, a lot of people do that here so organic eggs and cheese are easy to come by. I personaly adore goat cheese and I love to eat it in a salad that includes eggs:). I almost never buy eggs or cheese at a supermarket. My parents also buy organic! We can't really eat organic 100 percent all the time but it is good to do so when we can.

Too bad about this place being crowded and being forced to wait in line...but at least that is an indication that the food is of good quality. The paradox of eating out. If you see a lot of people someplace, you know it must be good but you don't feel like being crowded so you search elsewhere...but if a place is deserted you're not sure if it is any good. Decisions, decisions!:):)

ahhhh, have seen this EGG Shop visual on IG quite a bit. It does look a bit small, the place, but the food looks healthy and delicious. I am eyeing on that match latte already, looks so smooth! haha

oh I love eggs and my kids love them too. I love scrambled, half-boiled and boiled eyes. My boys? You put cheese in them, they will just finish them all! haha *_^

Looking forward to your next eating post! always a good read.

With love,

Now I wanna have their matcha latte, haha! ;) Such a cute spot, looks like a little kitche or something. Is an open kitchen actually a trend lately? We've got some restaurants with an open one as well now....hmmm. Anyway... the matcha latte reminds me of the avocado-coconut-lassi I've tasted last week. With sushi of course! ;DD

You are so right, NYC is full of restaurants which is why every time someone recommends one I always go and check it out at least once. I've never heard of the Egg Shop but when I get back to NYC I will definitely have to check it out. Thanks Rowena.
