  the eggs cream soda: a NYC institution
by richiecdisc

This was something I had to try and was happy to find it at 2nd Avenue Deli. It's basically just seltzer, milk and chocolate syrup in it so not sure where the egg part of the name comes from. I wonder if back in the day it had egg yolks in it. At any rate, it's quite tasty and if you like chocolate syrup, you're bound to like these. Try one. It's a trip back to the time when soda fountains ruled.
