The concept at Muffin Can Stop Us couldn’t be more simple; just put a bunch of eggs (mostly sunny side up) and different ingredients between an English muffin bun, and call it a day.

6. Calabama

5406 Lexington Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90029

It’s hard to think of a more of-the-moment breakfast sandwich in Los Angeles than the one at Calabama. The East Hollywood pop-up operates as a bucket drop, with customers ordering the sandwich in advance (it’s the only thing they sell) before showing up and fishing their breakfast out of a bright red pail.
