West Village restaurant serves up emu eggs

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Emus, birds native to Australia and similar to ostriches but smaller, lay very large eggs.

At a restaurant in the West Village, you can eat a scrambled emu egg dish for about $90.

Louro on West 10th St. serves up the eggs. It's chef describes them as "super rich."

"We have a whole specialty egg thing going. One of my friends is a purveyor and offered me emu eggs," said Chef David Santos.

The restaurant has been in business for a little over a year and the soft scramble with wild mushrooms and black truffle is a popular item.

The egg looks like an avocado with a hard, thick shell.. To get the equally large yolk out,  Santos cracks it like he would a regular egg.

While the emu is native to Australia, they are also raised on farms in New Jersey. The emu eggs used at Louro come from the Garden State.

To taste for yourself, visit Louro at 142 West 10th St., Manhattan.
