Mayak eggs, also known as Mayak Gyeran, are a popular Korean snack dish made with hard-boiled eggs that are marinated in a soy sauce mixture. The dish is named after the Mayak nuclear plant in Russia, as the eggs are said to be as addictive as nuclear fuel.

To make Mayak eggs, the hard-boiled eggs are peeled and then soaked in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, garlic, and sesame oil. The eggs are then left to marinate for several hours or overnight, allowing the flavors to penetrate the egg white and yolk.

Mayak eggs are often served as a side dish or snack and are popular in Korean street food markets. They are also a common item in Korean convenience stores, where they are packaged in small containers for easy snacking on-the-go.

Mayak eggs are known for their addictive flavor and are often referred to as “drug eggs” due to their reputation for being addictive. The combination of the salty soy sauce and sweet sugar creates a perfect balance of flavors that make it hard to stop at just one egg.
