Hot Spring Eggs, Baria-Vungtau, Vietnam

In a more secluded area of Baria lies a hot spring resort which still allows you to cook your eggs in the hot spring water. I remembered how they allowed you to do that in the hot springs of Taiwan until the practice was banned due to health and hygiene reasons.

Pop some uncooked eggs into the rented baskets and slowly immerse them fully in the hot water. There are actually some cooking instructions on how long to leave them in there if you wanted them hard, semi-hard or still runny. But I guess all these instructions were pretty arbitary since the temperatures seemed to differ from various hot spring wells.

Apparently, these eggs are cooked inside-out, it's pretty hard to tell when they were all well-done.

Perhaps I was just really hungry or these were supposedly free-range eggs, but after a dash of salt and pepper, these did taste pretty damn good.
