Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Sure, you drive through one of the ubiquitous fast food chains in Los Angeles, and emerge with a grease-stained bag of hand-held breakfast, perfect for the morning commute. But how can breakfast get truly served street-style in L.A.? Meet the Pancake Tacos from the Eggslut truck.

Three fluffy buttermilk pancakes are piled with farm-fresh scrambled-on-the spot eggs and chunky bacon crumbles. A side of maple syrup means you can pour on the sweet stuff to your liking, fold it up, and enjoy.

Of course, the Egglsut truck isn't a one-trick motored pony. Their signature dish is the "slut," which is a coddled egg served atop potato puree garnished with chives and grey salt in a glass jar. There's also cheery yellow scrambled eggs dotted with fresh herbs piled on a piece of toast. Breakfast sandwiches are graced with either bacon or sausage and spread with a spicy-sour tomato sauce, and daily specials tantalize from the wipeboard. Prices range from $5 to $8, cash only.

You can follow the Egglsut truck on Twitter to see where they stop, though you can often find them weekday mornings outside the Coffee Commissary and the Lindy & Grundy butcher shop on Fairfax.
