Japanese Ramen

Bought a box of ramen from the Nartia Airport before returning to Singapore. Consist of 4 servings for about 1000Yen. It comes with 4 packs of noodles and 4 packs of sauce. The eggs served in Japan in the ramen is hard boiled with the yolk still soft. After doing some investigations through some books and internet, I managed to find the technique of making the eggs. A rough guide on how long the egg needs to be cooked depend on how cooked you want the yolk to be.

Water should be brought to a boil before gently submerging the egg into the boiling water. Start timing only when the egg is submerged into the boiling water.

(For Medium size eggs)

Soft boiled 3mins

Hard Boiled with Soft Yolk 5-6mins

Hard Boiled with Hard Yolk 10 mins
