The story

Launched a few years back as a food-truck business by Mike Bertanza and chef Eric Felitto (a winner of Food Network’s Chopped), The Tasty Yolk grew to three trucks (two in Bridgeport and one in Fairfield) and received national and local acclaim for its egg-powered sandwiches. In the fall, the brand expanded to a storefront in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport at the space formerly home to Nom-Eez.

Our visit

I tried The Tasty, which features locally butchered sausage, two eggs and cheddar cheese served between a golden-brown bun and topped with housemade hot sauce. It’s the best egg sandwich I’ve had in a while, and more than lives up to the hype. Also excellent was the restaurant’s crispy chicken sandwich. And there’s a full breakfast-and-lunch menu that includes buttermilk pancakes, burgers and a wonderful-looking burrito.

Eat in or take out?

Tasty Yolk is more of a grab-and-go establishment, but there is a good amount of seating if you want to eat at one of the counters.
