According to a recent article from Block Club Chicago, Egg Tuck has two new Chicago locations in the works, one in Lincoln Park and the other at UIC.
A representative of Egg Tuck was not immediately available for commentary upon What Now Chicago’s request.
While an official opening date for either location has yet to be released, according to the Block Club Chicago article, “Now, the viral southern California Korean egg sandwich — which won the title of Best Eggs in LA Weekly — is coming to three locations in the city. Its first, 326 N. Michigan Ave., opened last week. It’s open 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. daily.”
“Two more locations — one in Lincoln Park and one at the University of Illinois Chicago campus — should open very soon, said Kim, Egg Tuck Chicago co-partner.”
“The Michigan Avenue location, which took Kim and co-partner Ryan Son about six months to get off the ground, is a self-serve restaurant with seating and to-go options. It’s available through various food delivery platforms.”
“Popular menu items include the bacon and egg sandwich and Royal West, which features a tteok-galbi, or Korean short-rib-inspired patty, Kim said. Other components help accentuate the features of the sandwiches, like its fluffy brioche recipe for the sandwich bread, which is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, Kim said. The brand’s spicy mayo comes from an in-house recipe and helps accentuate each bite, Kim said,” the article goes on to state.
According to the company website, “At Egg Tuck, our commitment is simple: elevate breakfast through the artistry of soft scrambled egg sandwiches and in-house brewed coffee. We aim to tuck joy into every bite, ensuring a delightful experience transcending the ordinary. We’re just too good to Egg-nore™!”
