When I travel I always make it my mission to eat as much as possible, meaning I am always on the look out to find cheap quick things we can eat before moving on to the next stop. Seoul is no different, especially when I’m out and about making content for the blog and my Youtube channel. For the past year or so, I have noticed Egg Drop popping up on my Insta feed a lot. I think it is a copy of the famous Egg Slut (much better name) from the States. Although if the companies should ever merge, Egg Slut Drop would also be a banging name. Anyway I digress, this egg sandwich joint has got pretty popular, in fact they now have multiple stores, so I figured it was about time I headed to check one of them out.
We decided to visit their Apgujeong branch which is located conveniently close to the station. The store itself is rather small but has seating for around 12 people. There is a counter hatch where you get your sandwiches but a robot computer where you order them. The names of the sandwiches are in English but everything else is in Korean, When it comes to food I’m fine and we managed to put our order together okay but had serious issues when it came to paying, thankfully after we messed it up about 4 times the lady came to help us put our payment through.
There are five sandwiches on the menu, some vegetarian and some with meat. I couldn’t resist getting the Bacon & Double Cheese Sandwich (3,400). After taking a tonne of photos I took a bite and was rather impressed. It reminded me a lot of the egg sandwiches from Japan and Hong Kong. The buttery brioche toast made it extra good along with the cheese and bacon. Coming from the UK, the land of egg and bacon butties, this was a pretty great breakfast in my eyes, I would kill for one on a hangover. The price point is also amazing, though big eaters might want to order two.
My fellow diner ordered the Avo Holic Sandwich (4,400), and she also got an Americano (1,900). I didn’t actually try this one, but my veggie friend soon wolfed it down. I imagine it was similar to mine just without the bacon and cheese. The coffee was pretty cheap too, we had just a simple black coffee but they offered an Egg Latte which I thought sounded interesting.
Overall I was very happy with my sandwich. It tasted great and was super cheap. This place seemed to be like a trendier version of Isaac Toast. I think it would make a great breakfast or lunch if you’re on a budget. If I pass by I will certainly be going in for another one; possibly two.
