raw egg

Amazing! TKG Tamago Kake Gohan (卵かけごはん) raw egg

Have you ever heard Japanese eat raw egg ?

Yes, that is true from when we are baby.

Overseas eggs cannot be eaten raw because there are many Salmonella bacteria, but Japanese eggs are almost free of bacteria. Therefore, it does not cause food poisoning.
Actually, when I had living in Berlin and Canada, I tried to eat a raw egg…of course, I had a terrible stomach. Hahaha.


Today, I talk about Japanese raw eggs that foreigners misunderstand.


I have heard, but never eaten though, Vietnamese eat steam eggs just before hatching, called “hột vịt lộn”.(very gross…)

When I saw it at the first time in Vietnam, I said,
“Unbelievable! bird is sorry!!”

Then, I talk about Japanese eat raw egg to Vietnamese…they said,
“Unbelievable! bird is sorry!!”

Japanese eggs do not become chicks because they are unfertilized eggs though.

TKG meaning


“TKG” stands for “Tamago Kake Gohan”. This means a raw egg on the rice with soy sauce.

My uncle is German, my cousins have lived near Heidelberg, and I also had lived in many other countries, so I have friends everywhere…When they went to Japan, they absolutely refused eating raw eggs at first.


However, Once they have eaten egg rice, they love it more than sushi or ramen.

Some of my friends tried to bring Japanese eggs to home…impossible, right?



Japanese eat Sukiyaki or Yakitori, Tsukune with raw eggs. We definitely put them in instant noodles.

Recipes of raw eggs
