The names sounds funny I admit but I love these gorgeous Filipino Orange Tinged Battered Chicken & Quail Eggs.  Who ever thought about how to concoct this Filipino snack is heaven sent from above.  You see, it starts with a boiled egg and then it gets coated with an orangey batter then deep fried….teamed up with a fantastic vinegary or sweet based sauce and you got a winner!  Out in the streets in the Philippines, Kwek Kwek and Tokneneng are served as a quick street snack.

SAWSAWANG PIPINO (Filipino Cucumber Dipping Sauce)

PIPINO DIPPING SAUCE© BUSOG! SARAP! 2012

I have to confess, every time I come back to the Philippines….even though relatives forbids me to eat them, I love Kwek Kwek and Tukneneng (Deep Fried Orange Tinged Boiled Eggs).  Like Filipino fish balls and squid balls, the sauces that comes with these street food morsels are the key that leads you to that food nirvana experience.  It’s the combination of the sauce and the deep fried street food delight that makes you keep on coming back for more.  Unfortunately I have never encountered the Sawsawang Pipino (Cucumber Dipping Sauce) that goes with Kwek Kwek and Tukneneng and it intrigued me so much that I have to make my own version of the Sawsawang Pipino at home.
