The Egg Shop

Let me tell you: This meal was simply egg-cellent.

Really though, I took a brunching hiatus in an effort to save money (and calories–let’s be honest). However, never again will I deprive myself of one of my favorite pastimes. Especially when I have access to the brunch mecca that is New York City.

My first attempt at getting into the Egg Shop was thwarted by a 2-hour wait. I kid you not. Thanks to a blizzard and an early arrival time my gal pals and I were able to get a seat in under 45 minutes.

Brunch menus can be particularly intimidating to navigate when you’re trying to be healthy, but as a general rule of thumb I skip right over the pancakes and french toast and seek out egg-centric dishes (pretty easy when the entire menu is in fact egg dishes!).

Though famous for their sandwiches I opted for a “cruiser” (A.K.A. a burritoΒ bowl, but for eggs and the like). This bowl was stuffed with pulled pork carnitas, diced tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, a poached egg and sprinkled with crunchy tortilla strips. Now, this is no egg white veggie omelette, but I like to think it’s a much healthier alternative to bread-heavy staples smothered in maple syrup.

In short, I’d highly recommend the Egg Shop. It’s cute, affordable and won’t completely derail your diet because hey, eggs are good for you πŸ˜‰
