Portland Food Cart: Fried Egg I'm in Love

Where: 3207 SE Hawthorne Blvd
When: Tues-Fri 8:30 AM - 2 PM, Sat-Sun 9 AM - 3 PM
Honeys Heart: Yolko Ono

It is a guarantee that Adam will order the breakfast sandwich when we go out for brunch. If there isn't a breakfast sandwich on the menu, he orders the necessary ingredients and creates his own. So for his birthday in December, we braved the cold, crisp air and headed to Fried Egg I'm In Love, a Hawthorne food cart focused entirely on breakfast sandwiches.

I went for the Yolko Ono ($7) with a fried egg, homemade pesto, parmesan, and a hand-pressed sausage patty. It's not what I had planned to order, but it's their "signature dish" and the guy in front of me ordered it and seemed like a regular so it had to be done. 

Adam went for a the heartier Egg Zeppelin ($8.50) with two eggs, two homemade sausage patties, two slices of Tillamook cheddar, and Aardvark aioli. Right up his alley! He was hungover from holiday party fun the night before and this hit the spot. 

We topped off our order with a $5 large mimosa. If you're going to wait outside in the cold you may as well have a drink. 

A couple other tempting options included the Sriracha Mix-A-Lot ($7) sandwich with a fried egg, seared ham, fresh avocado, tomato, havarti cheese, and sriracha and the 'Rito Suave ($7.50) burrito with two scrambled eggs, choice of protein, Tillamook cheese, avocado, and zesty cart pico. Reasons to return I suppose! But preferably on a warmer day...
