Ajitama. Can You Eat 100 Eggs?


You know, I have been watching one Youtube channel that has me fixated. Yuka Kinoshita. Japanese competitive eater. She's cute. She's pretty. And boy, can she eat!


I thought I was a big eater but beside Yuka, I am nothing. I am just like a little cicak. I have watched her eat 5 rotisserie chicken, 4 buckets of KFC and outeat 2 pro wrestlers.

I am so inspired impressed. Itadakimasu! That's her battle cry before she digs in. And then she goes mmmmmmm!!!. Watching her eat will make you hungry.

So what's with the Ajitama? That actually started off with me googling for ramen. These flavored eggs with soft runny yolks are served with ramen. I love eggs and I love soft runny centers. Then I started looking for the recipe.


I have made three attempts so far but have yet to perfect that soft center. I will keep trying until I get my magic number of minutes to boil the egg. I've tried 6 minutes (whites surrounding yolks still not set) and 6 minutes 50 seconds (yolks 90% set, arrrrghh!!!!).


These eggs are delicious. I have been taking them to work (two a day) as snacks for when I get peckish in the afternoons. No more popping over to Boite A Bijoux for a bun or two (sometimes three, hah!) because those carbs made me put on weight.

Misshapen egg. The eggs are soft and I crammed them all into a small container.
My experiment is still on and by the time I perfect the technique, I would have eaten 100 eggs. Itadakimasu!



Until then, I leave you with Yuka. Watch her eat bacon and eggs and tell me you are not tempted.

  2. I cannot eat 100 eggs, although I know I always say I can eat this and that, but 100 eggs can make me die instantly la, haha.. This Yuka Kinoshita, I've been following her on YouTube... Been watching her for 1 year already, I've basically watched all her eating videos.. She could eat 48 pcs of KFC too!

  3. To get perfect eggs is near impossible for home cooks like us. I think the only way is through a controlled water bath (like sous vide) done by restaurants. For you to get at your magic number, you have to use the same no. of eggs (of the same size), same amount of water and same (boiling) temperature as you've cooked all your other batches. A change in any of these components will make your magic number differ....good luck! ;)

    By the way, how did you get the brown colouring on your eggs. I know they crack the shells of already hard-boiled eggs to get tea eggs but you can't do that if you want a soft yolk. I love any form of eggs and can devour two a day too (like you) but try not to for health reasons :'(

    1. I guess you are right. There are a few variables to take care of. But I'm not giving up yet.

      I soaked the peeled eggs in the the soya sauce marinade overnight, that's how the eggs became brown.

  6. Hi Phong Hong, me too love eggs but even if we eat 2 everyday 100 eggs need at least 50 days. LOL...You carry on experiment the eggs until perfect and let us know how many eggs you consume. :))

    I wander how this Japanese lady can eat so much. Really salute her.

    Have a nice day, regards.

  7. I just watched the video and she sure made me hungry & greedy too! Whenever I had overeaten, I would increase my exercise and skip meals. That's the only way to maintain la.
    I wonder whether this lady really ate all just for the video or every meal?? She must be busy digging her throat after the video! Wakakakaka
    Why got crazy women nowadays aarrr? There is the Korean "Showry" who screams and go nuts in her video to make viewers laugh like crazy.

    1. 25??? That's mucho impressive! Bottomless put as I am, when it comes to eggs, I have to stop at maybe 5. They are very filling.

  11. Hi Phong Hong,
    It reminded me of the HK famous drama Man In The Net where Ah Chan ate hamburgers. Oh boy she could eat so much yet so slim. I could eat at most 5 eggs (hard boiled or scramble) in a week ... hee hee!

    1. Karen, 5 eggs in a week is so little hah..hah... I eat 3 a day. That makes 21. Yikes!

  12. I thought you meant 100 eggs at one go. I eat an egg daily so after 100 days the count would be 100 eggs. Please don't give up and keep making ajitama until the eggs are perfect, ok?

    1. Yuka had 100 in one go. In my lifetime, I must have eaten hundreds hee..hee...

      Delete
    2. She may have eaten 100 in one go but I highly doubt that she enjoyed eating the last one as much as the first one. Doubt she even have the time to taste her food before swallowing them.

  13. I have never tried them, although i have heard about them

  14. I love eggs, prefer them hard boiled or with the yolk not so cooked
