It’s likely you’ve seen this whopping sandwich on your Instagram feeds or on one of your favorite K-dramas (most notably, Hospital Playlist). Either way, the Korean egg drop sandwich is worth trying out, especially if you love breakfast sandwiches and eggs.
The popular South Korean snack has inspired local food businesses to create their own versions, using a variety of sauces, meats, and toppings. A basic egg drop sandwich usually consists of brioche toast, bacon, cheese, a creamy, sweet, mayo-based “egg drop sauce,” and either a runny sunny-side-up egg, or fluffy scrambled eggs. Some add sriracha to the mix, as well as other breakfast staples like meats and fresh veggies.
Here’s where you can get these aesthetically-pleasing egg drop sandwiches for delivery nationwide!
Egg Drop MNL
Local business Egg Drop MNL offers nine flavors of their homemade egg drop sandwich – huge, filling, and flavorful, and packed with the works. Their bang-for-your-buck sandwiches include soft, thick, buttery brioche bread that’s slightly sweet, your choice of egg (scrambled, sunny-side-up, or boiled), a slice of cheese, and their signature savory-sweet sauce.
It may be a mouthful to eat, but the end result is satisfying: you get sweet, savory, and sometimes spicy flavors in one bite, as well as varying textures.
They have the Breakfast SPAM and Egg (P115) flavor, made with slices of luncheon meat, fluffy egg, and cheese, and the classic but tasty Garlic Bacon Cheese (P100), made with crisp strips of bacon, egg, cheese, and garlic brioche bread.
