For years, L.A.'s Eggslut has existed as the holy grail for breakfast-sandwich aficionados, offering one of the country's most Instagrammable hangover cures. The food-truck-turned-brick-and-mortar combines custardy egg, gooey cheddar cheese, and spicy sriracha mayo, before smash it all between two halves of a perfectly toasted brioche bun.
But despite his restaurant's high-end pedigree, Eggslut’s Alvin Cailan also has a soft spot for the "sinful," mass-produced egg sandwiches found at fast-food joints and bodegas throughout New York City.
In this episode of Sean in the Wild, host Sean Evans stops by the egg kingpin’s new pop-up at Chefs Club Counter in Manhattan to test-drive some of the most popular B.E.C.s on the market. Then, Alvin and Sean hop into the kitchen to learn how to properly scramble an egg and “finesse” a slice of cheese.
Watch the video above and see if you can guess which egg sandwich is which.
