Spring Means There’s No Excuse For Not Lunching at the Eggs Travaganza Cart

Eggs Travaganza Cart I’m a little embarrassed to admit that as a lover of all egg dishes I still haven’t been to the Eggs Travaganza cart.  I know it’s not right, but in my defense it’s been pretty damn cold. So now that it’s full on Spring time, I have no more excuse to walk the two avenues eight blocks for some egg burrito action. When I found the cart on the corner of 52nd & Park Ave, it took me a while to go through the menu and it took me even longer to decide what to eat since everything sounded delicious. I was thinking maybe I’ll just grab a few tacos, steak and eggs naturally. Sadly they said they were out of tortillas for tacos but they could still make a steak and eggs burrito ($7). That to me sounded just fine.

Steak & egg burrito

My first reaction after opening the box was “where are the eggs?” I was imagining fluffy scrambled eggs inside the burrito but I didn’t see any. Then I thought maybe I ordered just a steak burrito? Or maybe the eggs were fully cooked into the steak and rice mixture so that I couldn’t see them? Fluffy eggs or no fluffy eggs, after taking a big bite of the burrito I quickly forgotten about the issue. Wow this was one delicious burrito. The tender chunks of steak were flavorful plus the rice really made the burrito great. I can taste why everyone loves this cart. I especially love how causally the lady dumped a bunch of potato chips into the box.

I’m still a little disappointed with not seeing any fluffy eggs in the burrito. Of course that only means that I will have to make a return trip to the cart, order the same burrito and compare (you know just to make sure). Also next time I will go early enough to secure some tacos and maybe a tasty grilled cheese chorizo sandwich.

    They usually aren’t fluffy eggs, they line the tortilla with the egg and it rolls around the ingredients — at least that’s they way they do it for the Mexican Special breakfast sandwich (which you can also get for lunch). I would eat that sandwich breakfast or lunch, but it is cheaper at breakfast.

    I wasn’t a fan of their steak tacos. They are traditional, but I didn’t care for the combination of flavors. They even add some guac. I want to say that I don’t like the way the meat is flavored….and I ended up tasting it for the rest of the day.
