Eggslut: The Review!

I’m an eggslut newbie. Rave reviews all around the world. Did it live up to my expectations? Let’s put it to the ultimate test!

I was in London recently, and I’ve vaguely heard about eggslut on social media. It’s pretty hard to forget such a punchy, in-your-face name. Everyone and their dog’s been there. So one day at around 2pm, as pretty much all the breakfast places either close past a certain time, or simply stop serving breakfast, I thought why not eggslut?

Eggslut is practically an all-day (until 5pm UK) breakfast/brunch restaurant. They’re located in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Seoul, Kuwait and London. So they’re a very established chain. That’s why I walked in with the highest of hopes. And ended up leaving with a much lower bank balance…

Contemplating my financial decisions

I attended the one located on Portobello Road, Notting Hill, London. For 1 sausage, egg and cheese bun, 1 bacon, egg and cheese bun, 2 portions of hash brown, and 2 orange juices, the grand total was an eye-watering few quid off £40.00. Yeah you can imagine my reaction, I basically choked then started envisioning a 6 pack of free-range eggs for 89p. You know how I’m a bargain lover?…. THERES’S NO BARGAINS TO BE FOUND HERE!

After finding the will to live and realising my legs are still capable of walking and not just shaking like a leaf from shock, I make my way to a table.

Me, trembling towards my table

I’m trying to relax and forget about the fortune I just spent on basically 2 eggs. Anyway, the food arrives….

Eggslut

Let me just zoom in for you.

Eggslut sausage, egg and cheese bun….

Appetising is the last word that crossed my mind. Everything looks ok… OK, apart from my sausage. It’s green. And not even a healthy green (if there’s such thing). A murky, sickly, pale green like the animal needed resuscitating. Then you notice the pink. I feel like I’m singing “I can sing a rainbow”.

And don’t worry it’s a pretty vibrant pale pink. Long story short, I didn’t want to eat it. The kitchen was behind me so somehow the waiter had x-ray vision and asked me if I’m okay, grinding my teeth, I reply, “Hmm yeah thanks.”. Pretty sure he could tell I was lying.

The bacon, egg and cheese looked much better. It actually looked edible which was a new thing for my eyes. But the sausage bun was my choice, it deserved to be in the bin, but I thought, who knows it might taste better than it looks.

Nope, tasted worse. No seasoning, and the tiniest bites I was taking, the more red the meat looked. I couldn’t hack it. I barely ate, then managed to survive off the hash browns. They were ok, nothing life-changing.

Best thing? The orange juice was nice. Simple, fresh orange juice.

Wash it worth it? NO. It was plain and simply a rip-off. Mc Donalds’ Sausage and Egg McMuffin/Breakfast Roll are much better. And only like £3/£4 for a WHOLE meal. Plus it tastes better. My eggslut was raw, fully raw, I wouldn’t give it to my enemy… Actually I probably would, I take that back.

Ryan Reynolds – smug expression

I don’t understand the high reviews eggslut has. Maybe it was the one I had? I’ve heard after this experience, that the Portobello Road branch has lower reviews than the one in Fitzrovia, London. But in all honesty, I wouldn’t be hopeful.

You could have a much nicer breakfast at well established restaurants for a fraction of the price. And with much more food. But if you must go to eggslut, divert away from the sausage, I repeat, divert away. The bacon egg and cheese bun looked better… But it’s still £10 for a bacon, egg and cheese bun!

I had a nando’s straight after this experience.

I had to, OK? Eggslut was Eggshhh.. I’m sure you can work out the rest.

Have you heard of Eggslut? Have you tried it? Surely your visit was better than mine? Would you spend almost £40 on 2 egg sandwiches with a couple extras? Did you enjoy this post? Like and comment below!

    1. Hahaha!😂 Even my bank balance hated it! Me too, Mc Donald’s breakfasts are so underrated, taste much better and don’t leave you poor! I could’ve bought hundreds of eggs for that price😂😂

    1. Trust me, if only I knew the cost beforehand… naive me. What’s worse is that I paid a fortune for a raw pink and green sausage. One of the worst decisions of my life😂😂
      I hope they don’t open a branch near you, they’d probably charge £££ for the privilege!😂

    1. Hahaha! I love eggs but I didn’t even get close to the egg this time, the raw sausage was in the way!😂 the chickens don’t have much to get jealous of on this occasion!😂😂

    1. Let’s just say they must be raking it in. It shows in the locations of the branches they already have around the world.💰💰
      £10 for an egg sandwich? The sausage was like a raw rainbow! Mc Donald’s looks like a Michelin starred restaurant compared to eggslut. 😂😂🥚 your emojis have my thoughts down to a T!😂

  1. Oh my word – that meal sounds horrible! I’ve never heard of the place, and wouldn’t go anyway at those prices! I can’t stand getting even a tiny bit of pink in a hamburger or chicken or any meat. Hope you didn’t get sick from the little bit you ate. 🙂

    1. It was worse than horrible! 100% a burger or chicken should never be pink. Steaks when they’re bloody, just goes right through me. I almost hear the “moo”. Yes I like sauce, I didn’t ask for blood, there’s a difference 😂😂. I physically can’t eat it and enjoy it. Chicken that’s pink is full on inedible. That’s salmonella right there sitting on a plate.😂
      My stomach didn’t agree with it afterwards, but a few hours went by and thankfully I felt better, Thankyouu for asking🤗

  2. Appreciate the fair warning, Antonia, as your report moves Eggslut from “Hmmm…” to “Hell No!”

    Forty quid for two breakfasts? Seriously? When you deplete your wallet to that extent, there better be a filet or crab legs involved. Not that horrifying…object pictured in your zoom in.

    Sure, it’s London, and in common with big cities everywhere, it has big prices to match. However, Eggslut left “big prices” behind about £20 ago.

    Really Antonia, you could go to the market and select all top-shelf ingredients, from organic, free-range eggs onward, go home and cook up something infinitely more appetizing. Oh, and you’d be about £25 richer too.

    Sorry for your travails – you definitely took one for the team this time. Now all your online friends know what you wished you had known then. Thanks for that!

    1. You’re so right! Even £4 for that would’ve been daylight robbery never mind £40. I’ll remember that day until the day I die. I’m not even being dramatic!

      The market would’ve been a lot cheaper, and actually edible!

      I still relive that moment every time I see an egg. I might have PTSD after this experience. I have no words 😶.

      Yes, I saved you all £40 at my expense!😂😂 is that an upside?🤔I’ll tell my bank manager that the next time I see them, it might lessen the blow.😂😵‍💫🥚

      Thankyouu so much for reading!😃

  3. Ha, Antonia! You should get some sort of compensation for the public service you provided.

    I think the Nobel prize is about £200K. Is that excessive for what you endured? Not really.

    I mean, you’re never going to be able to look at an egg again. That ain’t exactly “nothing.”
