Quail eggs

Whre can i buy fresh quail eggs in T.O (King/Dufferin) and what breakfast dish would showcase their flavour best? Fried? Omlette?

    1. You can also get them at T&T on Cherry street. I like them fried or gently poached in soup. :)

        I can also vouch that T&T on Cherry has them by the case regularly. A lot cheaper than at the WASPish places I bump into them (like Scheffler's).

        They're great served pouched in soups. I love my udon with a quail egg.

      2. I think any asian grocery store will have quail eggs. Cook them the same way you would chicken eggs ... maybe not scrambled unless you want to use a half a dozen for a single amuse.

          You're right. They are at most 'Chinese' supermarkets. Within the last week I have seen them at Lone Tai and Fu Yao.

        2. You can find quail eggs at Scheffler's Delicatessen in the St.Lawrence Market. They are delicious friend and served over noodles and chicken.

          1. They're also there at Oriental Harvest in Chinatown.
