Sandwiches made with freshly scrambled eggs are the specialty at this Los Angeles-based shop, with a variety of delectable creations to choose from. The Bacon, Egg and Cheese features some of the crispiest bacon you'll encounter in Tokyo, and the signature Fairfax sandwich is built on an enticing, umami-rich assemblage of caramelized onions, gooey cheddar cheese and sriracha mayonnaise.

Eggslut's scrambled eggs tend to be creamy rather than fluffy, and all sandwiches are served on plump, buttery brioche buns. The excellent egg-salad sandwiches are livened up with chives and honey-mustard aioli, and provide a very original take on this humble picnic-basket standard.

The menu's sole non-sandwich main item is called the Slut, and it's a coddled egg served over pureed potatoes in a glass jar. They also serve burgers, with or without eggs. Sandwiches come a la carte or paired with orange juice, and artisanal root beer is another drink option. Take-out is available, and there's some outdoor terrace seating when the weather allows.
