Add any of the following ingredients according to your tastes: Thai chili, ginger, green onion and/or cilantro.

Basically a thick and spicy chicken soup over poached eggs, kao tom is a traditional breakfast dish in Thailand.

No, they actually do eat these types of meals for breakfast - much different from the American style - they eat all kinds of food during each meal.

By Zakman - I agree w/ 41 yr old Aussie - I am 54 yr old Serb - What is the issue w non-fully cooked eggs - providing no cracks in shell or fecal matter if farm eggs? And other than provide large choices at awesome prices what is wrong w/ Safeway?

Hey, Ozzie - you have to look at what some of us have done to chickens over the last 20 years. I'll eat my omelettes bacuse anytime, and I love my Steak Tartare, but having seen some the chooks in cages in the Far East, I'd be hard pushed to eat a half-raw egg. And Aussie cage-laid eggs ? Give the chooks a break and do yourself a healthy favour, don't buy them, even when they outnumber normal eggs 20-1. I hate safeway, and the rest ............. grrrrrr

Geez, what is the problem with eating a non-fully cooked egg, what are they doing to your eggs?
I am a 41 year old Australian in Australia and eat eggs every day and can't stand fully cooked eggs. I am aware of salmonella and never use an egg that has a crack. But gee whiz. Never heard that warning before.
