Eggholic, Melbourne CBD

MELBOURNE | Never discount something just because it’s hyped or is ‘on trend’. Case in point, the loaded Korean thick cut brioche ‘egg drop’ sandwiches named after the South Korean spot Egg Drop, that’s generally considered to be the place that created, or at least popularised the sandwiches, in 2017.

The sandwiches have since become popular all over the world, and one of the best places to try them in Melbourne is Eggholic. I popped into their Spencer Street, CBD store a few weeks ago to grab some shots for What’s on Melbourne, and ended up with a few sandwiches to take home and eat for breakfast and lunch the next day.

One of Eggholic’s most popular sandwiches, and my favourite too, is the the Garlic, Bacon ‘n’ Cheese. Basically garlic bread filled with scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, and cheddar cheese. How can you go wrong? Another great one is the BBQ chicken, filled with spicy Korean BBQ chicken, salad, oak lettuce, and egg sauce.

The point of the extra thick brioche is to keep the thing from getting soggy, hence maintaining the sandwich’s structural integrity. I can confirm that, after a few hours in my bag and almost 24 hours in the fridge, the sandwiches hold up admirably. Reheat it in the sandwich press for a few minutes and you’re good to go, with the now melted cheese and crisped, condensed bread, hitting the spot.

As well as sanwiches, Eggholic also sells an assortment of snacks; lattes with flavours like dalonga and matcha; tea, and soda.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
