Eggs - LA Dish of the Month (March 2013)

In a tight race, Eggs edged out Bean & Cheese Burritos by one vote. (See?? Your vote does count!)

The dish of the month for Los Angeles for March 2013 is Eggs.

Here's a link to the vote:

The goal is to collectively try as many versions of Egg (or Egg-centric) dishes as possible during the month of March! So let's start exploring and eating—report back with reviews and photos.

Looking forward to seeing what people find.

Thanks again for participating.

  1. Playground Santa Ana:

    Uni Risotto- very comforting. A reasonable substitute to fill the hole left by the loss of Red Medicine's Porridge.

    Roasted mushrooms with slow cooked egg.

    And a gratuitous porchetta shot.

      Tell me you were not tempted to just mix the risotto and the 'shrooms/eggs all together in one dish?

    2. not really a review, but more of a plug.

      if you find yourself near milo and olive at breakfast time, be sure to get this:

      CHEESY EGGS ON SUPER CHEESY TOAST soft scrambled egg.

        Thank you for this ... was just thinking of trying them tomorrow.

        Incidentally, I feel like I'm stalking you today!

          on the weekends i'm on chow hound a lot, so maybe i'm stalking you.

          also, when i was at Milo and Olive, i also tried this and loved it
          wild mushroom & fresh herb
          my dining partner that morning is gluten intolerant.
          she ordered this and it was wonderful.

            I love the fried egg sandwich at Huckleberry (guess this is a Nathan-Loeb love fest this morning).
            For fresh eggs I go to Farmshop Market and buy the Mike and Sons eggs. They are wonderful. I won't buy eggs anywhere else.

              I really like the fried egg sandwich at Storefront. Possibly the best that I have had in a real long time.

              WG, in the "cheesy" eggs, what's the cheese, if you happen to know ?

        2. re: westsidegal

          I tried this dish on Saturday - delish! As shown in the photo, I got the La Quercia prosciutto as well, which is a nice addition. My only complaint is that it was a bit of a challenge to get toast, eggs, and prosciutto all in one bite - but I survived. =)

          EDIT: I was responding to Westsidegal's recommendation above - Cheesy Eggs on Super Cheesy Toast at Milo & Olive.

          1. Had the Zachary breakfast sandwich at North End Cafe in Manhattan Beach this morning with hard fried egg, brie, bacon & raspberry jam. Sweet and savory. So good.

              I always mean to go there, but I seem to skip it for Uncle Bill's usually.

              That being said, the cappachino with orange peel is pretty dope at North End. And I think North End has even better location benefits seeing as it's off the beaten path from the tourist track in Manhattan Beach. I'm not sure why I don't go there more often. But I have a theory: As always, the Sisyphean parking situation has something to do with it.

            2. The nova eggs and onion scramble at Barney Greengrass with a NY Bialy on the outdoor deck is very good. In a different vein, uni and quail egg at Sushi Sushi is awesome.

                I'll have to try it.

                But I hate the fact that it's in the middle of a department store.

                The things we do for decent food.

                And the prices are always outrageous, and may be even more so than the location in NY. (Btw, is it considerably worse than the original NY location ?)

              2. Oyakodon (egg, chicken, onion over rice) at I-naba with gratuitous tempura anago shot.
