Quail Eggs from The Philippines
From Balut to duck & chicken The Philippines, it seems, is quite partial to eggs. Walk down any food stall, shopping center, or night market and you will see various types of egg being cooked.
Quail eggs are usually gently steamed in large containers. The speckled shells are much thinner than chicken eggs so greater care is needed in cooking them.
The taste of a quail egg is not that different at all from a chicken egg. Quail eggs are, slightly sweeter, but not to any great degree. That said, Filipinos adore them. And, much like in other parts of the world they are special treat.
They are also not that expensive and well worth a try!
