All Slavic languages: Sunny side up

    In BCS, we say "na oku" (on the eye)to indicate that we want our eggs sunny side up, hence the yolk facing up and intact.

    How do you say this in other Slavic languages?

    It's essentially the same in Slovenian: jajce na oko

    NOTE: A literal Slovenian translation of BCS "na oku" would be "na očesu", but the idiom involves a different case in Slovenian.

    EDIT: Hinko beat me to it!

    In Slovak it's volské oko, pl. volské oká/oči.

    In BCS we say "na oko" actually. :) ("to(wards) eye(-like appearance)" = eye-like, something like that; not "on the eye")

    Czech: "volské oko" or simply "očko"

    So it is essentially the same in every Slavic language? BTW, what does "volské" mean?
  8. texpert Senior Member

    Volské oko - a bull's eye.
    Makes little sense? Never mind. I wasn't particularly quick to take up this expression either.

    If we're taking about this, in Polish we would call it jajko sadzone, nothing to do with oko.

    The same in Macedonian: јајце на око ("jajce na oko").

    In Czech, we also have "sázené vejce" along with "volské oko". By contrast, I have never heard Jana's "očko". Perhaps a regional thing.

    In Russian, eggs fried this way are called глазунья (glazun'ya).

    In Bulgarian you say яйца на очи/ na ochi.

    We always said buličí voko at home.

    It comes from "bulící oko" - crying eye

    "bulet" is derrogatory term for "to cry"
