Why are hotel eggs always so runny?

Because they’re not real eggs.

More importantly, why don't you like runny eggs?

I didn't say I didn't like them. I like them fine. I just wonder why that's a thing with hotel breakfasts. They're always way runnier than you'dusually get at, like, a diner.

Diners make them to order, or in any case in smallish batches. Hotels make huge buckets of eggs at a time.

I'm wondering if there's a cultural disconnect here vis-a-vis hotels and eggs. In the US you've got your Holiday Inns, La Quintas, etc, that in my experience cook things in large batches and typically offer hard boiled or scrambled eggs; and then there are your nicer places like the Ace that will make your eggs to order.

I am talking about breakfast buffets, and that's been the case in pretty much every hotel I've ever stayed at, everywhere I've been in the world, even the really nice ones. That's what I find curious. Maybe there's like a Hotel Egg Code.

Yeah, those budget hotels in the US I mentioned are also buffets, and you can usually have scrambled or hard-boiled.

I feel like we may be missing each other's point 'cause I don't know what hard boiled eggs have to do with anything. I am talking about scrambled eggs specifically

5-star hotels in the US that offer breakfast buffets also have super-runny scrambled eggs in my experience

Have any RMers ever made a great honest-to-god ramen before? I'd like to tackle it this winter but not sure where to start. My Asian cooking knowledge is relatively limited.

My wife makes fantastic ramen all the time.

Get me her recipe please.

Sure thing. I know she mixes it up all the time. But I'll get the basics for you and also some suggestions, too.

I'm pretty pumped for this.

Hey trag, I'm sorry I haven't followed up on this yet. It's been a hectic week and I haven't had time to chat with her about this. But I haven't forgotten.

Do 5-Star hotels offer breakfast buffets?

Weird. Seems to me that one of the qualifiers for a 5-Star Hotel would be dinning/room service but no buffet. A buffet feels... 3-Star at best.

That's crazy. Breakfasts buffets are offered by 4 and 5 star hotels too. Some are nicer / more complete than others.

I love breakfast buffets
