Quail Eggs

When i was younger or back home in Singapore – i used to love Quail Eggs.  I had often asked my mother when i was young – why she wouldn’t cook quail eggs instead of chicken eggs.  Not because they tasted any different – not to me anyhows – but they are just too cute.  Don’t you think so too?  I think not many over here had seen quail eggs – i had bought them like in May when i was up in the city and only took them out to eat because they were gonna expire soon.


I had them with my curry noodles and it was alright but one thing for sure – darn hard work to try and peel off the shell.  Now i understand why my mom wouldn’t cook quail eggs – hahahha!   I find quail eggs taste a wee bit different – what do you think..?? do you like quail eggs or regular ones..?

    MB, I just bought a carton of 12 quail eggs to cook ‘fu chok yee mai tong sui’ (dried bean curd sheets with barley). Yeah, it is a bit difficult to shell them after cooking. I love quail eggs very much.

    Yep definitely find them hard to peel! Quick to egg. But I think I like chicken eggs – because I’m a big eater… Heheheh

    I love quail eggs too. But when I was young, we couldn’t afford to eat quail eggs. :( Anyway, I try to get it whenever i go to the Asian store in Boston now so that my kids are not deprived of the quail eggs. 😛

    I loved quail eggs when I was small, still loved them too. Like yours, my mum hardly cook quail eggs too probably for the same reason – hard to shell

    Boil the eggs in vinegar, it makes the peeling much easier. Be ready with a bowl and big spoon as the vinegar froths and can rise out of pot and make a big mess on the stove. The cholesterol in a quail egg is healthy and these eggs are good for dieting.
