Tukneneng and Kwek-Kwek are egg street foods commonly sold all over the Philippines.Tukneneng are soft boiled quail eggs dipped in batter that is usually dyed orange then deep fried in oil while Kwek-Kwek are chicken eggs prepared the same as tukneneng.
Here is a small bucket with the orange-colored batter. The quail eggs are rolled into flour before they are dipped into the batter.
There are two kinds of sauce to choose from. The first sauce is the sweet and sour sauce and the sauce on the right is vinegar with chopped onions, chopped cucumber and bird’s eye chili. I like combining the sauce for my tukneneng. It’s gives a sweet,sour,spicy and cucumber-y taste.
