Kwek Kwek


My friend Joanne and I was walking along AD Curato Street-JC Aquino when we spied upon a group of students crowding around something. Our curiosity piqued so we waited for a lull in the frenzy. When the crowd finally parted, we beheld this ordinary sight. We were expecting something more exciting than this.

I was eating banana Q at that time so I asked my friend Joanne to take a photo of the new (in Butuan) street food sensation that they call, kwek kwek.

Kwek-kwek is boiled egg (quail or chicken)covered with orange batter and deep fried into brown balls. It's made tastier with a secret recipe of sauces. Probably a mixture of vinegar and spices of choice.

Do you know how this street food got its name?

Thanks Jo for the pic! =)

Those deep fried "treats" look interesting ... I'll try almost anything once!

I'm not sure, but isn't kwek-kwek sort of how birds sound? I actually saw a recipe on this one and I'm going to try and make it.

At least it's just an egg! For the longest time, I thought they were day-old chicks. Never ever tried them tuloy…
