Can you eat raw egg?


Let me talk about the egg today. I like eggs very much. Boiled, scrambled, fired...always taste good. But remember there is another way to eat it; raw :) Do you eat raw eggs in your country? I really like it ! When I don't have time for cooking or prefer to eat simple dish, I just put rice on tea bowl and add a egg and soy sauce. Oh, it's not cooking, just mixing ;) Nevertheless, that's extremely yummy !

There is wide spread culture to eat raw egg in Japan. Also, we eat many things in raw.


Fish, and even beefs sometime.



Fortunately, eggs are not expensive. Around $2.2 for 10 eggs. Is this disgusting to eat a raw egg? Or can you eat it?

  2. Ir France we eat "Oeufs au sucre". Super simple: raw eggs that you mix with a fork for 5 minutes with sugar. Kids love it.

    1. Waw, French people also eat raw egg! I had never heard about it! I am interested in French food very much, but it's really expensive to eat it here in Japan... :(

    2. You can have good french meals in Tokyo for around 4000 yens, like at "Maison cache-cache" near Yotsuya, or "Aux amis des vins" in Ginza (オザミデヴァン本店). Lunch is cheaper too :).

    3. I googled both restaurants and surprised that the price for lunch were not so expensive. I will try one of them soon! :) Oh, I don't know well about manners for eating French foods. I have to check this out before going...

    4. If you know how to use a fork and a knife, that should be more than enough :)

  6. In Holland we are not used to eat raw eggs, people think they'll get sick from salmonella bacteria. It's a risk, so probably it's safer not to eat raw eggs. Although, sometimes I go to the Japanese shop in Amsterdam to buy eggs for Japanese dishes, to eat them raw (with tsukune for instance). These eggs are brought in from Scandinavia by the Japanese shop. Bacteria free, guaranteed! :)

    1. People in Holland don't eat raw eggs...I didn't know that. It reminds me of some years ago when I served Japanese dish with raw egg to people from Philippines, they never try to eat it. Maybe they also thought it could be dangerous.
