From my point of view 🙂
TKG is probably the one of the food you can eat only in Japan. Usually, it is very rare to eat eggs in raw if you look around the world. It is also common in worldwide that it is not safe eating eggs in raw because of the Salmonella. However, in Japan, possible. I must note that it is ok to eat TKG if the eggs are very fresh even in Japan.
The best before on the pack of eggs selling in Japan means if you eat the eggs in raw. So most of the Japanese people do not hesitate eating the eggs from grocery stores.
Of course, more fresh the eggs are better. If you want to try TKG, don`t you feel more comfortable eating TKG if you are from countries do not eat egg in raw at all? I do understand. So I strongly recommend eating at “UCHINO TAMAGO.” The eggs served at “UCHINO TAMAGO” are provided from the farm which is operated under controlled environment in Fukuoka. No wonder it is clearly stated on the website that “Salmonella Free.”
Usually, the most common seasoning for TKG is Soy Sauce. Nowadays, a bit of sesame oil and salt are getting popular seasonings among Japanese people. Since TKG is very simple, it may be interesting to try another seasonings and create your own TKG, too.
Please enjoy your TKG in Japan!
