Onsen tamago

onsen tamago -

Onsen tamago (温泉 or 温泉玉 ?) Is a traditional low-temperature Japanese egg cooked slowly in onsen water in Japan. The egg has a unique, white texture, it tastes like fine pudding (bima and soft) and the egg yolk comes out gently, but retains the creamy colour and texture of the egg yolks. 

This special texture is cooked using the difference between the temperature of egg yolks and freezing egg whites. The eggs are boiled in cheese and served without the shell in a small cup with gravy and soy sauce.
