In Japan, we actually never say “ramen egg”. Ramen eggs are called “ajitsuke tamago” (味付け卵) which means flavoured egg or “nitamago” (煮卵) which means literally means simmered egg. A regular boiled egg is called “yude tamago” (ゆで卵).

Even though ramen egg is most commonly seen on… (you guessed it) ramen, Japanese people also eat them as a snack. It’s easy to buy ramen eggs already flavoured in the supermarket too!

How to cook soft boiled eggs

Ramen eggs are always soft boiled no matter what! It’s one of their characteristics! Here is my way to get perfect soft boiled eggs every time!

  1. Firstly, you will need a pan that fits enough water to completely cover your eggs.
  2. Bring the water to a gentle rolling boiling and carefully lower your eggs in. (Your eggs should be cold and straight from the fridge.)
  3. Set the timer for 6-7 minutes (6=very soft, 7= quite soft)
  4. As soon as the timer is up, you need to put the eggs straight into ice cold water! (Don’t forget the ice!!) and that will stop the cooking process.
