GUDETAMA GOT A LITTLE SLUTTY @ EGGSLUT - DOWNTOWN LA
I took my Gudetama buddies to Egg Slut and taught them... well...how to be slutty. Basically.
First, all my Gudetamas learned how to be correctly cooked to juicy, yolky perfection. Remember that gloves should be used to ensure health safety and non-contamination!
Here is Kevin and I bringing along our Gudetama tamago (egg) sushi backpack to Egg Slut. This little guy is so fun to bring around and stuff our necessities in! I love it's dangling arms and legs! Sometimes when the nori (seaweed) belt slides off a bit, Gudetama truly looks a bit slutty.
Here is an egg sandwich called The FairFax from Egg Slut on top. It's got cage-free soft scrambled eggs and chives, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and sriracha mayo in a warm brioche bun.
The bottom is the Gaucho sandwich which is more for lunch. It's got seared wagyu tri-tip steak, cage-free over medium egg, chimichurri, red onions and dressed arugula in a warm brioche bun.
Both have SO. MUCH. FLAVOR.
GUDETAMA IS SO CUTE!
If you haven't noticed already from my Instagram, Facebook, whatever, that I am a huge Gudetama fan, well now you know.
I went to Japan last summer and collected a bunch of puttito figurines (edge of cup figurines) from the vending machines. Each one was around $5 and sometimes I would get double. It was really hard to say no to all those vending machines because I really wanted to collect them all but would get so discouraged when I would get doubles and triples of the same one! Especially since I was on a tight budget to not spend too much. Gudetama keychain? ... or food... or shopping?! Well, I ended up collecting all but one!
A few months ago I finally bought the last one to complete my collection in Los Angeles at one of those Tokyo / Sanrio type of stores that sell cute, kawaii things. I was so happy! Yes, I'm a crazy
It indeed is super fun to take my Gudetama puttito collection to places that I go to just...put them on cups, plates, etc. and take photos! They are so cute! It's like I have mini Gudetama buddies with me all the time!
When Kevin and I went to Eggslut, of course I had to bring these! Eggs.. and Gudetama? YES YES YES!
So we busted out our collection and amidst all the stares we got we still kept our cool and took some awesome photos. Then, we devoured our Eggslut sandwiches like it was our last meal. The sandwiches here... are so worth! Well, at least for Kevin and I since we are from Orange County and it's quite a far drive. Whenever we do go to Egg Slut, we go all out and order the FairFax and Gaucho sandwiches. It ends up being around $20 but to us it's worth it as a once in awhile thing. The sandwiches are extremely juicy. The only downside is that it can be a bit greasy.
If you are planning on going to Eggslut, here are some tips:
- The line can get insane here. I usually go around 2 or 3 but it's risky because they might sell out of your item.
- I came here at 10ish once and the line seemed long but actually only took 20 minutes! Not bad!
- Parking sucks. This is located in the Grand Central Market in downtown LA so street parking is hard to find during peak hours.
- There is a parking structure across that costs $5
- Get the Gaucho. It's amazing
If you are a Gudetama fan, here are some words that I have for you:
- We need to be friends.
- Let me show you my Gudetama Collection.
