Eggstravaganza Offers Eggstraordinary Options for Lunch
Oh, Eggstravaganza; we knew ye way back when you were still a cart. It’s been a while since we posted about your dishes, so in case you forgot… here’s some of the deliciousness you can find at Eggstravaganza.
One day I saw them tweet about their chorizo salad bowl, and headed over to try that. Unfortunately, they were out of chorizo so instead they gave me a vegetarian salad bowl for $5.
Pretty sizable for $5, though they chopped up fresh jalapenos in there with my salad and I forgot to ask for none or less as I spent my entire lunch hour sweating through the heat of the peppers (yeah yeah yeah I am a spice wuss).
Another time, I was able to split two of the other options with Dave – my official go-to guy when I need help eating two lunches – first, the Three Amigos wrap, which boasts THREE kinds of meat (thus the name): chicken, steak, chorizo, along with grilled onions, peppers, avocado, American cheese and jalapenos. Pretty hefty – $7.50 and comes with a handful of potato chips. I think I’d be full for the rest of the day if I’d eaten a whole one, but I’d be ready for dinner that night.
We also ordered the Mexican grilled cheese on multigrain bread for $6 – though the menu says chorizo, bacon, tomato and cheese (it’s Land O Lakes; I asked them via Twitter), the flavor of the chorizo comes through much more pronounced and I didn’t see any tomato on my half of the sandwich. Those nitpicks aside, the crispness of the toast and the oozy cheese with the meaty chorizo on the inside is just perfect. I loved the nuttiness of the bread with the creaminess of the cheese – just perfect!
Overall, I don’t think the Eggstravaganza Truck is easy to beat in terms of value and taste. Each dish comes in well under $10, leaving you enough to buy a soda or drink if you want – or even add on a taco and stay under $10 (unless you get the Three Amigos and a skirt steak taco, which will cost you $10.50 combined). Everything I tried was very tasty, well-seasoned, and the woman working the window is suuuuuuuuuper nice. If you haven’t been here yet, you are really missing out.

Eggstravaganza Truck – they are generally at the northeast corner of 52nd and Park, but check their Twitter for their location before you head out as they occasionally go elsewhere (mostly private events) or sometimes tweet specials!
