Egg Drop Soup is an Entree and Side in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! and a HS Required Food in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?!.


Egg drop soup was invented by a woman named Xia Liu, whose husband Rong, a chef of a small-time walk-up restaurant who would often boast to younger women that he knew every possible way to prepare an egg. Tired of his constant bragging, Xia set out to prove her husband wrong by finding a new way to prepare eggs.

After some trial and error, Xia became inspired by memories of her grandmother preparing her soup on rainy days and set out to make an egg-based soup. The result was a delicious success, and so Xia challenged Rong to make what she called egg drop soup right when he was in the middle of boasting about his talents to a group of young women.

Not wanting to admit he had no idea what egg drop soup was, Rong held out an uncooked egg in front of him and dropped it onto the ground, proclaiming, "See? Egg drop soup." which received a mild chuckle from the young women. It was only when Xia gave each of them a taste of her creation, however, that their polite chuckles turned into mocking laughter.

Today, it is considered shameful to not know how to prepare egg drop soup, and the classic egg drop joke is told across thousands of hibachi restaurants.
