I picked up these bad boys at the local Lotte 999 mart. How could I ignore them? Black boiled eggs? I have to find out!
They were only about 1,500 won for two. (I guess some would consider that on the more expensive side)
I was surprised because the outside feels like a fine powder, but it doesn’t rub off on my hands. I peeled it open to find the egg inside is brown, similar to the ones you can buy at the sauna.
It seems these are baked over charcoal. See that white packet? Salt included.
It was delicious! Basically the same as a regular boiled egg, with a smokey aftertaste.
