Ko Egg & Caviar Kit for 4

Just add eggs!

The Ko Egg is one of the most iconic dishes from the tasting menu of Momofuku Ko. Created by David Chang and the team at Momofuku Ko, this dish is elegant, playful, and most importantly delicious!

This kit provides almost everything you need to create this classic at home. This dish is a study in balance: the richness of a soft-cooked egg and buttery onion soubise, the crisp of fingerling potato chips, the luxury of caviar, the brightness of fresh herbs, smoked salt, and the unique tang of benimosu, Japanese purple sweet potato vinegar.

Few chefs, and restaurants, have done more to influence restaurant dining in America over the past two decades than David Chang and his Momofuku. But what’s today a certified empire with restaurants around the world began way back in 2004, with the opening of Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York City. From then on Momofuku became synonymous with edgy, super-inventive spins on Asian cuisine in casual, minimalist dining rooms.

Eggs are not included with this kit

Instructions / Storage

  • This package ships with ice packs, may thaw in transit.
  • Upon arrival, remove all contents from shipping package and refrigerate only the onion soubise, herbs, and caviar. Do not freeze. Store other items at room temperature. Use within 5 days.
  • You will need one chicken egg per person served, but plan to make a few extra eggs, just in case.

To Serve

Recommended Equipment:

  • Small Saucepan, Large Saucepan, Timer, Slotted Spoon, Mixing Bowl, Ice, Paring Knife, Tablespoon

Make the Eggs

  • Pull eggs from fridge and temper on the counter, 30 mins to 12 hours.
  • Bring a large pot of water (about 4 quarts) to a strong simmer. Have a timer ready.
  • Gently lower the eggs, in their shells, into the simmering water with a slotted spoon. Set timer for 4 minutes and 45 seconds. Some eggs will crack, though they should still be usable.
  • While the eggs cook, prepare an ice water bath for the eggs in a large, deep mixing bowl. When the timer rings, use the spoon to transfer the eggs to the ice water. Begin to peel the eggs when they are cool enough to handle.
  • This is the tricky bit! Very gently, tap all around the egg’s shell with the back of a teaspoon. You want to create small cracks in the shell without damaging the egg white. Peel the eggs while they are submerged in water. Don’t worry if a little egg white comes off.
  • If not serving immediately, store in the fridge for up to 8 hours.
  • To reheat, bring a pot of water to a gentle simmer. Remove from heat. Gently lower eggs into water for 2 minutes.
  • When ready to plate, remove onion soubise from packaging and reheat on the stovetop, using a small saucepan on a low flame. Stir constantly until the onions are just steaming, and remove from heat.
  • Begin assembly in wide, shallow bowls.
  • Spoon a generous tablespoon of onion soubise, just off-center. Next to it, place a small bunch of the chervil and chive. To the left of the herbs, pile up a handful of fingerling potato chips.
  • Set one whole egg on top of the onions, and with a small knife, slice the egg white open a third of the way; try not to pierce the egg yolk.
  • Spoon a teaspoon of caviar into the opening of the egg.
  • Squeeze benimosu on the edge of the onion soubise.
  • Finish with a pinch of smoked salt on the egg. Serve immediately.

My husband and I love momofuku and were frequent patrons when we went to New York, due to Covid, we haven’t been in over a year, let’s just say, we are both jonesing for a trip! I thought, the next best thing would be to bring New York to us for his birthday dinner. Delivery was on time, perfectly chilled and once cooked, delicious! I will definitely order again in the future.

Customer service is wonderful. Delivering meals in scorching hot days bodes poorly for keeping foods properly insulated but Goldbelly has been THE BEST in fixing an issue.
