Egg Club is specializing in decked-out egg sandwiches on Japanese milk bread.
Just steps from Yonge-Dundas Square, this small takeout spot is griddling up one of the tastiest breakfast sandwiches in the city.
It's a lean, killer menu of eight different sandwiches, all served on loaves of Egg Club's shokupan: Japan's pillow soft and perfectly square white bread you've likely encountered while eating a sando.
The bread is the star of the show, followed by a perfectly fluffy egg filling. All the recipes behind Egg Club's menu are shrouded in mystery (and by mystery, I mean the owners' outright refusal to divulge any of the secret ingredients that make their sandwiches so good).
Given its proximity to the city's most bustling intersection, don't be surprised if this place is sold out for the day at any given time. For the owners, it's important to try to keep everything affordable, always (nearby Ryerson students, rejoice.)
Sandwiches run from $5.70 to $7.70. It's an extra $3.70 if you want to add a coffee and their hash brown.
Given the hulking size of their sandwiches and how tasty everything is, I'd say it's extremely fairly priced.
The Egg Club ($6.70) comes with Swiss cheese, creme fraiche, and a very eggy mayo, with a topping of caramelized balsamic onion.
The Meat Lovers ($7.70) is an entire breakfast you can fit in two hands. There's smoked sausage patty, chipotle mayo, and a thick-cut bacon.
Get any of these with the hash brown. Egg Club's take on the breakfast staple is addictive. Folded in two, it sandwiches a mashed potato mixture, with a slightly sweet, syrupy hint to the crisp.
The Guacamolic ($7.70) is loaded with guac, creme fraiche, and their egg club sauce.
These things are loaded, meaning it's impossible to achieve a clean first bite, though you can try. You'll likely need a coffee after.
