I’m not that squeamish about raw egg yolk so I would give this a try. My wife hates egg yolk with the passion though which means that she’s not allowed anywhere near my breakfasts.
The drink is not without context. It’s couched in a Korean tradition from the ’60s and ’70s, drawing inspiration from a popular drink served at dabangs (coffee shops). Round K’s version is only an interpretation of the original drink which was made from instant coffee, a pinch of salt, a raw egg yolk, sesame oil, and pine nuts or walnuts. The loaded drink was intended to energize its drinkers as well as leave them feeling satiated.
