Deviled Eggs at Jar. All photos by Bun Boy Eats LA

If you’re like me, you’ve noticed deviled eggs on every LA restaurant menu. But, if you’re like me, you’ve also ordered them every single time.

It’s okay. Don’t feel guilty ordering them. Deviled eggs have such a consistent, all-American appeal and a truly retro nature. This is what bored ’50s housewives would snack on to soak up their two-martini lunches. Years later, we still can’t get enough of these vintage delights.

I was telling my friend who lives in Washington about this article, and she retorted, “I never see deviled eggs on any menus here!” Well, Southern California’s oldest buildings are from the 1950s, not the 1850s, so I think we’re just more in tune with our mid-century modern past. Deviled eggs are what we were snacking on when our sunny state hit puberty. After a long day’s surfin’ safari, what else would hit the spot?

Having tried every deviled egg I can get my grubby paws on, here are some of my favorites:

Jar

While there are other deviled eggs in LA that incorporate seafood, Jar’s upscale take is the more impressive version. The sweetness of the crab adds to the flavor, but doesn’t overpower. At $10, these eggs also the most expensive on this list.

Flores

The Flores egg with crispy pig ear and green olive is unique and totally works. Deviled eggs are one of the few foods I don’t believe needs any texture, but the pig’s ear adds a nice crisp. I just wish they were larger.

Public School 310


I’ve had the spicy deviled eggs at the downtown location, but find the Culver City ones are much better. The eggs are totally delicious and packed with flavor from the crispy speck, but I also wish they were bigger, so don’t plan on sharing.

Del Frisco Grille


Yes, Santa Monica’s Del Frisco Grille is a chain, but it’s chain food at its greatest. The truffled deviled eggs have some gratuitous, filled-to-the-brim yokey goodness. The truffle does not overpower, it only empowers (me to eat more).


I headed to the Valley to try these Bacon and Eggs which were, like, totally awesome. Loved the chunk of candied bacon on top. Simple, effective, and highly caloric.

Next Door by Josie


Next Door by Josie is an unassuming lunch spot that does a killer version of deviled eggs. Topped with duck cracklins and pickled beets, these were both inventive and ample. A nice combo of flavors.

Clementine


Clementine‘s eggs are heavy on the mayo, but the chives and red onions cut through the creaminess nicely. These are a constant staple in the deli case, as one obsessed friend can attest. One week, she ordered them for lunch every single day.


Autumn Deviled Eggs

Fact: Check the 3-number code or Julian date on the small side of the carton. January 1 is represented by 001, and 365 indicates December 31. This is the day the eggs were packed, and they stay fresh, in the refrigerator, 4 to 5 weeks without significant quality loss.

Fiction: An egg that floats in a glass of salt-water is not fresh.

Fact: This test has no relationship to the freshness of table eggs. While eggs do take on air as they age, the size of the air cell varies from egg to egg when they are laid. Consequently, a freshly-laid egg and an older egg might react very similarly.

Fiction: I should only buy the most expensive eggs.

Fact: The hens’ feed determines the nutrient content of their eggs, not the hens’ housing system or other factors. Specialty eggs require more work by the farmers as well as additional fee or housing systems, so they typically cost more.

Fiction: If a hard-boiled egg is hard to peel, it’s old.

Fact: Fresh eggs are harder to peel because the shell membrane clings tightly to the shell. For best results, buy & refrigerate eggs 7 to 10 days before hard boiling.

Fiction: Thick, rope-like strands of egg whites should be removed.

Fact: These natural, entirely edible parts of the egg called chalazae anchor the yolk in the center of the white. They are neither imperfections nor beginning embryos.

Fiction: Brown-shelled eggs are more nutritious than white.

Fact: Shell color is determined by the breed of the hen and does not affect quality, nutrients, flavor, or cooking characteristics. Since brown-egg layers are slightly larger birds and required more food, their eggs are usually more expensive than white.

Fiction: It’s easy to get Salmonella from eating eggs.

Fact: On average, only 1 of every 20,000 commercially produced eggs might contain the Salmonella bacteria. Purchasing eggs from a refrigerated case, properly refrigerating them at home and thoroughly cooking eggs reduces the risk of food-borne illness.

Fiction: Size is determined by the appearance of the egg.

Fact: Size is based on minimum net weight expressed in ounces per dozen.

Fiction: Added hormones are used to increase egg production.

Fact: Hormones are not fed to poultry in the U.S.

What is the best way to separate eggs?

Use an inexpensive egg separator or a small kitchen funnel, which will trap the yolk. Do not use the egg’s shell because of the possibility of cross-contamination.
