  1. You have me at salted egg yolks!! That stuff is so addictive. Bet this soup taste amazingly delicious, Raymund.

  2. This looks incredible, Raymund! I just found (and had) my first salted egg yolks! The store doesn’t get them often – but they are so good!

    I’ve been feeling really under the weather lately, so this is EVERYTHING I want right now. I need to figure out a way to make vegan salted egg yolks! There have been so many breakthroughs in vegan egg technology, it has to be within easy reach now. I even have vegan hard boiled eggs in the fridge as we speak; I wonder if I can tinker with those…
