Hot Spring Eggs (Onsen Tamago)


Hot spring eggs (onsen tamago) are Japanese soft-boiled eggs. Japanese like to make them in hot springs, hence the namesake. When you break a hot spring egg, a solid egg falls out of the shell. You might think it's hard-boiled but it's very soft, and the yolk in the middle is still liquid.

Hot spring eggs may be eaten as a topping on rice. Or with some soba sauce and a sprinkle of spring onions.
