While a simple dish made with rice mixed with raw cheap eggs gives off the impression of second-rate cooking, a simple twist is given to make this dish a one-of-a-kind specialty. In a maneuver that is normally difficult to achieve, the eggs are quickly infused with the seasonings before it is able to cook on its own. The result is not only a delicious aroma, but a taste that only Sōma can make.

Tamago kake gohan (卵かけご飯?, egg on rice) or Tamago gohan in short is a popular Japanese breakfast food consisting of cooked rice topped or mixed with raw egg and optionally, soy sauce. Tamago kake gohan is a dish in which a raw egg is put on top of or mixed with rice, or a recipe for such a dish. Beaten eggs are sometimes used, as are non-beaten. Sometimes only the yolk of the egg is used.
The dish is known in Japan as "tamago kake gohan" (gohan means rice or food and kake means "splashed" or "dashed"), "tamago bukkake meshi" (meshi means rice or food), "tamago gohan", or simply "tamago kake". Tamago (egg) may be written 玉子, as an alternative to the single character 卵.
